2023 Irish Mares Novice Hurdle Betting Odds at Fairyhouse racecourse

Sunday, 09 April 2023

While Magical Zoe and Halka Du Tabert both ran in the same race at the Cheltenham Festival, it is Ashroe Diamond who might go off as favourite despite a longer lay-off from the track. The Willie Mullins-trained runner has displayed some smart form this season and will look to follow up a recent win with another triumph in this encounter.

Magical Zoe was second in the Mares Novice Hurdle at Cheltenham and the Henry de Bromhead-trained charge will aim to go one better here, with Halka Du Tabert coming a close third and the pair are likely to be prominent in the betting once again. Night And Day runs for Willie Mullins who is likely to be mob-handed for this big money race.

2023 Irish Mares Novice Hurdle Tips

Ashroe Diamond has not been seen at a race track since the end of January when the horse obliged with a victory at Fairyhouse. She will now return to the Irish racecourse in search of another win and Willie Mullins will surely regard the mare as his best chance of landing a success, with the runner having finished nine lengths behind Facile Vega at Leopardstown over the festive season.

Magical Zoe is her younger adversary and Henry de Bromhead’s runner did little wrong on Day Three of the Cheltenham Festival when finishing second behind You Wear It Well. Jamie Snowden’s charge proved too strong in the end, although the five-year-old runner-up ran a blinder when finishing second and there was a previous success at Down Royal.

Halka Du Tabert runs for Gordon Elliott and claimed third place in the Mares Novices Hurdle, with the horse having finished third to Ashroe Diamond and there was only two and a half lengths separating the two charges in the Solerina Mares Novices Hurdle over two miles, two and a half furlongs, with the horse standing a reasonable chance of success.

Night And Day is a decent runner who was the facile winner of a Maiden Hurdle at Clonmel in mid-January, with Princess Zoe also set to run a big race and this is an Anthony Mullins-trained runner who was fifth at Cheltenham and could represent a decent each-way bet at Fairyhouse.
