Robbie Power’s Cheltenham 2020 Day 1 Tips – Mares’ Hurdle

Robbie Power joins us to give his best bets for the Mares’ Hurdle on Day 1 of the 2020 Cheltenham Festival.

4.10 Mares’ Hurdle

Stormy Ireland would have to have a very good chance. She’s a good mare in her own right, probably just a couple of pounds behind Benie Des Dieux and Honeysuckle.

If for some reason those two didn’t turn up on the day she would be bang in there to pick up the pieces. I fancy Benie Des Dieux, I’ve been very impressed with her having ridden against her a couple of times.

I’ve ridden against her in France and in Gowran Park and she was very very impressive.

I think she’s a better mare this year than she was last year and I fancy her to take care of Honeysuckle. It’s a good clash between the two mares but I’m going to side with Benie Des Dieux.


Best Bet: Benie Des Dieux (4/6)
