Mares' Novices Hurdle Betting Tips 2020

Willie Mullins is the best in the business when it comes to mares. Ireland’s Champion Trainer has won all four editions of this race. Even when his chances looked bleak last year, 50/1 and 66/1 shots came to the fore on the sprint to the line to hand Mullins a lucrative 1-2. So, while Minella Melody looks to be cut from a similar material to stablemate Honeysuckle, backing a Willie Mullins mare has to be the way to go.

The one I like most is COLREEVY, who was really serving it up to Minella Melody the last day at Fairyhouse, and would definitely have challenged for the victory, had it not been for an error at the last. The winner of a Grade One bumper at Punchestown last season, Colreevy is yet to show what she’s really capable of over hurdles. A stage as big as the Cheltenham Festival would be the perfect place to do just that.

Who is favourite to win the 2020 Mares' Novices Hurdle?

Willie Mullins has won all four renewals of this race to date, the first three with hot favourites but last year with the 50-1 Eglantine Du Seuil. She beat her 66-1 stable companion Concertista. He will be heavily represented again this time but Henry de Bromhead’s Minella Melody looks to set the standard this time. Unbeaten in three starts over flights she was too good for Colreevy last time and shapes like relishing the final hill. Full Day 3 Tips on Freetips.com
