Cheltenham Mares Hurdle 2022 Preview

A light betting heat with running plans fluid and the big Irish yards likely to be dominant. The current favourite is the 2021 winner Tellmesomethinggirl who is sure to give her running again, with ground conditions no issue and still some more improvement in the tank for her astute connections.

Mares Hurdle Tips 2022


Gordon Elliott’s progressive mare has won two of her six starts over hurdles so far, and shaped really well when finishing second behind the frontrunning Burning Victory at Punchestown last time out. She was rather at a tactical disadvantage there in a small field, finishing with plenty of running left in the tank, and this stiffer test of stamina (and likely strong pace up front) should suit her ideally.

Mares Hurdle Winners

A contest dominated by Willie Mullins over the years, with his supermare Quevega barely coming off the bridle to land this Grade 1 an incredible six times on the trot between 2009 and 2014. She was always one of the bankers of the Festival for the legions of Irish punters, and in recent years they have seen some high class displays from the likes of Vroum Vroum Mag, Benie des Dieuux and Honeysuckle in 2020. Black Tears took the race in 2021 for Gordon Elliott, and the top Irish yards are likely to dominate in 2022.
