2022 Paddy Mullins Mares Handicap Hurdle Betting Odds at Leopardstown racecourse

Sunday, 06 February 2022

We’re looking forward to the 2022 Dublin Racing Festival betting odds and there are lots of leading races including the Paddy Mullins Mares Handicap Hurdle. This is a Grade B encounter and a chance to see some talented mares battle it out on Sunday 6 February before potentially going on to race at the 2022 Cheltenham Festival.

Party Central heads the Dublin Festival betting market and he’s one of several Gordon Elliott-trained runners lining up, with Glan also entered in the race. There is also the Gavin Cromwell-trained Brides Hill available at a backable each-way price and the five-year-old could be a market mover as we get closer to the race.

The 2022 Dublin Festival betting odds are now available and that includes the Paddy Mullins Mares Handicap Hurdle, with this being an encounter over two miles, one-and-a-half furlongs. It’s more a test of stamina rather than speed, especially as the ground is usually on the soft side at Leopardstown Racecourse, with a maximum of twenty runners battling it out for top honours.

Party Central is at the head of the betting market with the top racing betting sites, with the horse bidding to follow up that recent victory in the BetVictor Proud To Support Irish Racing Mares Novice Hurdle at Punchestown, with Davy Russell guiding the runner to a victory by a head. Previously to this, the horse was well down the order in a Mares Novices Hurdle at Down Royal.

Brides Hill is the interesting runner in the race. Gavin Cromwell’s best chance of landing a Dublin Festival winner could be in this encounter. This looks like one of the best Dublin Festival betting tips if you go on the fact that the horse triumphed at Leopardstown earlier this season when winning a Paddy Power Handicap Hurdle over the festive period.

This was a victory by seven and a half lengths after previously unseating his rider in a handicap hurdle at Fairyhouse, although the horse was travelling well in this horse race. The horse seems to be on an upward trajectory and it would be a surprise to see the horse among the Cheltenham Festival betting favourites here.

Glan has already run four times during the 2021-22 National Hunt season and the JP McManus-owned charge hasn’t finished outside the frame in these performances, with many Dublin Festival bets likely to be placed each-way on a horse that was only narrowly beaten by Gua Du Large at betting odds of 10/1.

There are lots of other each-way betting options in the race and that includes Finest Evermore and De Lady in Red, with Willie Mullins no stranger to training successful mares and the six-year-old has only had one outing this season. Must Be Obeyed is trained by Thomas Gibney and the horse won at Punchestown very recently.
