2023 Memorial Mares Handicap Hurdle Betting Odds at Wincanton racecourse

Saturday, 11 November 2023

Lime Avenue returns to the track after nearly a year and the six-year-old could be the one to beat, with a favourable weight allowance afforded to a horse who ran well last season. There were two wins in four outings last term, with Ilovethenightlife also looking a lively contender and the five-year-old is trained by Joe Tizzard.

Vicki Vale and Plenty Of Time are also trading among the favourites and there could be as many as thirteen runners lining up for this encounter. The latter has benefitted from an outing already this season, with Sabrina and Molly Ollys Wishes other runners who could make this a competitive tussle at Wincanton Racecourse.

2023 Mares Handicap Hurdle Tips

Lime Avenue is going to go off as favourite when it comes to this Mares’ Handicap Hurdle, with the six-year-old returning to Wincanton Racecourse after previously obliging with a win here. That took place at the beginning of February and it was one of two victories last term considering there was a Flat race success over two miles at Chepstow back in October 2022.

Ilovethenightlife also has to be respected and was last seen finishing fifth out of eight runners in a novices’ hurdle race at Cheltenham Racecourse. That came after successive wins at Doncaster and Newbury, with the five-year-old having shown that she can perform well on soft ground over long distances along with being able to jump well.

Vicki Vale runs for trainer Dan Skelton and returns this season following some impressive performances last term, with the horse having won at Taunton Racecourse at the end of April. That was in a novices’ hurdle, with the horse previously slipping up as the 4/9 favourite at Kempton in mid-March when losing by eleven lengths.

Plenty Of Time was able to triumph last time out and that was an affair at Wincanton Racecourse, with Sabrina having landed the spoils at Ayr in her previous encounter. That was a solid showing over three miles, half a furlong. Beating favourite Great Snow by three and a half furlongs was pretty substantial and there could be more to come.
