MRS PADDY POWER MARES’ CHASE RUNNER-BY-RUNNER GUIDE

Mrs Paddy Power Mares’ Chase tips

Timeform:ELIMAY had produced a very smart performance when chasing home leading Ryanair Chase contender Allaho at Thurles on her previous outing, and she didn’t need to improve on that form to win the listed Opera Hat Chase back in mares’ company at Naas.

“That was her third win from four starts over fences and her Timeform rating of 159 identifies her as the one to beat at the Cheltenham Festival, so she deservedly heads the market.”

Ruby Walsh:ELIMAY‘s tiny but a real character, as brave as a lion. I think she’ll love the trip and the track. I do fancy her.”

Frank Hickey: “Elimay and Colreevy look difficult to split but I will take a chance on the Willie Mullins third string in SALSARETTA.”

Mick Fitzgerald: “Shattered Love must surely have a better chance against ELIMAY this time around compared to Naas when running over an inadequate trip.”

FULL PREVIEW: MICK FITZGERALD’S BEST BETS FOR DAY 4 OF THE FESTIVAL

Gina Bryce: “A new race run over the same course and distance as the Ryanair where its not a surprise to see Willie Mullins dominate the top of the market. With an excellent Festival record with mares in both the Dawn Run and the Close Brothers Mares Hurdle he has an impressive battalion to call on again here possibly headlined by the well touted ELIMAY for JP McManus.”

Matt Chapman: “Elimay will be hard to beat but is at short odds and MAGIC OF LIGHT is the each-way selection.”
