Mrs Paddy Power Mares’ Chase

The Mrs Paddy Power Mare’s Chase is the most prestigious steeplechase for mares run in the United Kingdom.

2024 Mrs Paddy Power Mares’ Chase Preview

Dinoblue is the pick of the mares that will turn out for the 2024 Mares Chase at Cheltenham. She finished second in a Grade 1 chase in her last race, but won a Grade 1 chase in Leopardstown prior to that, and achieved a Grade 3 win in her first chase of the season.

At around Evens she doesn’t offer huge value, until you look at the next two in the betting, Limerick Lace and Allegorie De Vassy, neither of whom have won a Grade 1 or 2 race over fences this season.

The value bet in the field may be Brides Hill, who has run three times since September, winning all three starts over fences – all over the Mares Chase distance.

Sportinglife gets it right 48.08% of the time when picking horses that will place in the top three, and Allegorie De Vassy is priced within range of a profitable each-way bet if she only manages to place and should be priced around Evens on a place bet.

About the Mares Chase

The Mrs Paddy Power Mares’ Chase is a recent addition to the Cheltenham Festival and will be run on the fourth day of the meeting. Open to mares aged 5 or older, the Mares Chase is run on the New Course at Cheltenham over a distance of 2 miles and 4.5 furlongs. Seventeen fences are jumped during the race.

The Mares Chase replaces the Centenary Novices Handicap Chase at the Cheltenham Festival, which has been moved to a separate race day outside of the festival schedule. The Mares Chase is the first mares-only steeplechase to be run at the Cheltenham Festival.

Look out for mares that have performed well in open races earlier in the season over 2 mile distances. As always, look out for horses who offer value at prices over 4/1 so you can hedge your selection if it places with an each-way bet.
