Mares Chase Odds 2023


Colreevy ridden by Paul Townend (right) clears the last on their way to winning the Mrs Paddy Power Mares’ Chase during day four of the Cheltenham Festival at Cheltenham Racecourse.

The newest race at the Cheltenham Festival, the Mares Chase, has only been run twice. In both years, Willie Mullins trained the winner in the form of Colreevy in 2021 and Elimay last year. 

Allegorie De Vassy has won all four starts since joining the Mullins yard, with two victories coming over fences. However, she did not impress with the jumping despite winning easily last time and will not want to make too many mistakes against better opposition here. 

Impervious is second in the betting and is three from three over fences. She landed a Grade 2 against the geldings in January and brings the best form to the race. She has had to battle to win her races, but that could stand her in good stead.  There is a very light British presence in this race, and both Pink Legend and Zambella look up against it despite running creditably in the race last season.

Mares Chase Odds and Entries 2023

Allegorie De Vassy and Impervious are lightly raced over fences and could still have plenty more to offer as their careers progress. Impervious has not been as stylish in her victories as Allegorie De Vassy, but she will be a tough nut to crack. 

Jeremys Flame returned to winning ways at Huntingdon when putting Zambella in her place in a Listed event. She has a solid record over fences and will likely give her running again. 

Riviere D’etel was thought highly enough to run in the Arkle at The Festival last season and took on Galopin Des Champs at Fairyhouse last April. She is yet to prove herself over this distance but is a high-class mare who should not be ruled out. 

Last year’s winner Elimay also finished second in 2021, but her form has gone downhill since that success. As a result, she will need to be better than ever to retain her crown.  Magic Daze is likely to set a strong earlier pace from the front, but her stamina is not assured at this distance, and she could prove vulnerable in a finish against some stronger stayers.

Betting on the Mares Chase

The Liberthine Mares Chase is the most recent addition to the programme on Cheltenham Gold Cup day. 2023 will see only the third renewal of this event but it is already following a familiar pattern. The all-conquering Willie Mullins stable have won both races to date with Colreevy and Elimay.

Mullins saddled four runners for the inaugural running in 2021 with Elimay heading the Mares Chase betting. She lost out in a duel with stable companion and second favourite Colreevy. The winner reappeared in the Grade 1 Champion Novice Chase at Punchestown where she defeated top novices Monkfish and Envoi Allen before being retired to the paddocks.

Elimay started 9-4 second favourite behind stable companion Concertista in 2022. The latter jumped poorly and was soon beaten but Elimay fought off the determined challenges of Pink Legend and Scarlet And Dove to win by half a length. If you are having a bet on the Mares Chase 2023 it will be difficult to look beyond the entries of Willie Mullins which include Allegorie De Vassy. Her main market rival is the Colm Murphy-trained Impervious, an impressive winner at Punchestown in January.

Mares Chase News

Willie Mullins has won both runnings of the Mares Chase and could make it three in a row with Allegorie De Vassy. She is not always the most fluent jumper but has an engine and can go well. 

It is disappointing that only two British-trained runners in the race, Zambella and Pink Legend. They were fourth and second in the race last season but will likely prove vulnerable to the Irish challenge again. 

Elimay won this race last year but has been well below her best since that run, and it is hard to see her bouncing back at the moment.
