2023 Warwick Mares Hurdle Betting Odds at Warwick racecourse

Saturday, 11 February 2023

Love Envoi is now trading at odds-on with the horse racing betting sites, with the seven-year-old likely to take all the beating over two miles and five furlongs. This race takes place at Warwick Racecourse, with some punters likely to be lumping on the Harry Fry-trained charge, although each-way backers might be looking for bigger racing odds.

West Balboa and Theatre Glory are also prominent in the market, with the former having scored a win last time out and there is plenty to recommend the Dan Skelton-trained runner, while the same trainer also has Get A Tonic and Molly Ollys Wishes so it will be interesting to hear what the handler thinks of their respective chances.

2023 Warwick Mares Hurdle Tips

Can anyone beat Love Envoi in the 2023 Warwick Mares Hurdle? The seven-year-old has secured back to back victories at Sandown Park, with the horse landing a victory in a handicap hurdle on 3 December. This was followed up by a comprehensive thirteen-length win in a mares’ hurdle at the same track, although this race is due to be a stiffer test against more quality opposition.

Love Envoi is a high grade animal and she proved this at the Cheltenham Festival last March when the horse was able to win the Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle. However, the horse was beaten into second by Brandy Love and that eight-length defeat at Fairyhouse means that we could consider other runners in the race, with customers considering each-way alternatives.

One of those horses is West Balboa, with Dan Skelton having three horses in the race although this one seems like the main contender. The runner produced the goods in the Lanzarote Hurdle at Kempton Park when Bridget Andrews gave her a tremendous ride, with that coming over two miles and five furlongs. You would have to argue that she looks better value than the favourite.

Theatre Glory could yet come to the fore, with the six-year-old running a fair race last time out when securing third place in a handicap hurdle at Kempton Park. We didn’t learn a huge amount from her previous run when unseating a rider earlier in the race at Newbury Racecourse at the end of November.
