Mrs Paddy Power Mares Chase 2022 Racecard

The Mrs Paddy Power Mares' Chase is the penultimate race on the final day of the Cheltenham Festival - it is new for 2022.

4:50 Fri 18 Mar MRS PADDY POWER MARES CHASE

Distance: 20f 127y Age: 5yo + Prize: £120,000 Going: Gd/Sft

Analyst's Verdict

ELIMAY had to settle for second behind a very classy stablemate in the inaugural running of this but can go one better now. Mount Ida beat the selection at Fairyhouse in January but there is a worry she'll jump out to her right back on a left-handed track. She got away with it in the Kim Muir last year but may not do so against an opponent of Elimay's calibre. Concertista is best of the rest.

2020 Dawn Run winner who was collared in the dying strides by Black Tears in the mares' hurdle at this meeting 12 months ago. 2-2 in Grade 2 mares' novice chases this season. More to come over fences.

Good efforts behind Mount Ida on first 2 outings this winter and shaped better than being pulled up would suggest in Thyestes at Gowran in January. More a place than win contender.

Edged out by stablemate Coolreevy in first running of this 12 months ago. Warmed up for this year's renewal with a second successive win in Naas mares' listed race last month. Leading claims.

Has thrived since front-running tactics have been adopted, winning mares' handicaps at Wetherby and Carlisle in recent months. This surely a step too far, though.

Remarkable performance to win Kim Muir last year as she didn't look to be going anywhere early on (jumped right). Has built on that with wins at Clonmel and Fairyhouse (beat Ellimay) this term.

Likeable chaser who saw off Vienna Court to win Huntingdon listed race over this trip in January. However, she was beaten when falling 3 out in Uttoxeter race won by Zambella last month.

Has returned a much improved model this term, winning a pair of competitive C&D handicaps around the turn of the year. Respectable second to Pink Legend in Huntingdon listed race since.

Very useful chaser who has won mares' chases on 3 of her last 4 starts, the first 2 listed events. Won't need to raise her game too much to give the Irish something to think about.

Betting Forecast : 15/8 1.87 ELIMAY, 2/1 2 MOUNT IDA, 7/2 3.5 CONCERTISTA, 16/1 16 ZAMBELLA, 22/1 22 SCARLET AND DOVE, 25/1 25 VIENNA COURT, 66/1 66 PINK LEGEND, 300/1 300 MAID O'malley

The 2022 Cheltenham Festival will see the introduction of the Mrs Paddy Power Mares Chase. The new Grade 2 steeplechase is the penultimate race on the final day of the Festival and replaces the Listed Novices Handicap Chase.

Sponsored by Paddy Power the race is named after former Cheltenham Racecourse Chairman Robert Waley-Cohen’s mare and will be officially registered as The Liberthine Mares Chase.

The race is run on the New Couse at Cheltenham over two-miles and four and a quarter furlongs. The chase is the first mares race to run on Gold Cup Day and it’s introduction has been welcomed by leading figures in the racing industry for the encouragement it will provide owners and trainers to develop Jumping mares.
