2023 bet365 Mares Hurdle Betting Odds at Wetherby racecourse

Saturday, 04 November 2023

There’s little to split the front three mares in the betting for what should be an intriguing encounter at Wetherby Racecourse. The runners and riders will negotiate nine hurdles as part of a two-mile clash and the leading trio all failed to win their previous encounter. However, the runners have strong credentials and You Wear It Well could prove to have the edge.

Luccia runs for Nicky Henderson and produced some eye-catching performances last term, while Kateira could go well for trainer Dan Skelton. There are as many as eight runners and it’s worth looking out for odds boosts in order to get bigger value. Salsada and Stainsby Girl are each-way outsiders that might be able to hit the frame.

There’s going to be plenty of bets when it comes to this Mares’ Hurdle race and there’s no obvious favourite for an encounter which takes place over two miles. You Wear It Well could go well for trainer Jamie Snowden, with the six-year-old having finished fifth in a Novices’ Hurdle race at Aintree although there were previously victories that were achieved.

That includes a Mares Novice Hurdle success at the Cheltenham Festival, with the 16/1 shot being able to edge out her competitors including Luccia who was sent off as warm favourite. Perhaps the five-year-old will be able to triumph on this occasion, with the mare having performed well at Aintree last spring when finishing third in the Top Novices’ Hurdle.

Kateira had enjoyed three successive wins before finishing second to Irish Point in the Mersey Novices’ Hurdle and there were twelve lengths between this mare and You Wear It Well. The Dan Skelton-trained runner was previously able to score at Uttoxeter, Huntingdon and Market Rasen, with more improvement potentially on the cards.

Salsada runs for Brian Ellison and will need to improve on the fifth-placed finish in the Coral Scottish Champion Hurdle where the horse was unable to make an impression on the leading contenders. Stainsby Girl enjoyed successive wins on the all-weather at Newcastle last season and she deserves the chance to step up in class.
