Mares' Chase History

Organisers at the Cheltenham Festival announced in 2020 that a Grade Two Mares' Chase would be introduced to the Festival schedule the following year.

After weeks of deliberation, it was decided that the Northern Trust Novices' Handicap Chase, run on day one, would be the race to make way for the Mares' Chase.

A reshuffle to the race schedule followed, with the Boodles Juveniles Handicap Hurdle moving to day one, and the Grand Annual being pushed back to day two, in order to run in Mares' Chase in the penultimate slot on Gold Cup day.

Bookmakers Paddy Power was revealed as the main sponsor behind the race, which will be titled the Mrs Paddy Power Mares' Chase.

Colreevy became the inaugural winner of the race in 2021, while Elimay won in 2022.
