The penultimate race of the meetings is one for the girls. The Mares’ Chase is only being run for the fourth year and in 2024 has a short priced favourite in the shape of Dinoblue.

Betfred will be offering a price boost on Friday’s race, so keep your eyes peeled from 11am. In the meantime, we’ve assessed the Mares’ Chase odds ahead of the Grade 2 run at 16:50.

Mares' Chase Odds

  • Dinoblue @ 1/1
  • Allegorie De Vassy @ 4/1
  • Limerick Lace @ 4/1
  • Brides Hill @ 8/1
  • Riviere D’etel @ 20/1
  • Marsh Wren @ 20/1
  • Carole’s Pass @ 20/1
  • Harmonya Maker @ 33/1
  • Instit @ 40/1
  • Kestrel Valley @ 66/1
  • Pink Legend @ 66/1

Dinoblue @ 1/1

The betting is headed by the Willie Mullins-trained Dinoblue, who was last seen finishing second behind El Fabiolo in the Grade 1 Dublin Chase in February. The seven-year-old has won five of her nine chase starts, including a Grade 1 in Ireland at Christmas and is a short price to win. 

Allegorie De Vassy @ 4/1

Mullins also trains the second in the betting Allegorie De Vassy at 7/2. The French import finished second in this race last season and has won a couple of Listed races since. 

Limerick Lace @ 4/1

It's been the theme of the week, but the Irish dominate the betting. The third favourite is Gavin Cromwell’s Limerick Lace at 9/2. This will be her first race outside of Ireland. She comes here off the back of two wins this season, including a 10-length success at Down Royal last time out.

Brides Hill @ 8/1

Cromwell also saddles 8/1 chance Brides Hill, who has won all three of her starts this season in Ireland. This will be a step up in class, but she won a Listed contest last time at Huntingdon in January.

Riviere D’etel @ 20/1

There’s a break in the betting to Gordon Elliott’s Riviere D’etel, a faller in last year's race. She’s run five times this season and hasn’t finished outside the first two. However, she has found herself behind Allegrie De Vassy on a couple of those occasions.

Marsh Wren @ 20/1

Stuart Edmunds saddles 20/1 shot Marsh Wren, who has won three of her four chase starts. The eight-year-old has three wins this season, including a Listed effort last time in Thurles. This is a step up in class.

Carole’s Pass @ 20/1

The six-year-old trained Carole’s Pass runs for Amy Murphy at a big price. She’s been running in Listed company and got off the mark for the first time in February on her last start, over three miles at Exeter by seven-and-a-half lengths.

Harmonya Maker @ 33/1

Gordon Elliott’s other runner in the race is Harmonya Maker, who has five and a quarter lengths to make up on Marsh Wren from their last meeting in February. Before that, she did score at Thurles in a Grade 2 Novice chase.

Instit @ 40/1

Willie Mullins saddles big outsider Instit, who has come up short against some of Friday’s rivals, beaten over a combined 20 lengths by Allegorie De Vassy in their two meetings and finished a distance behind Riviere D’Etel earlier in the season.

Kestrel Valley @ 66/1

66/1 chance Kestrel Valley is trained by Nigel Twiston-Davies and was comfortably beaten by Carole’s Pass on her last run at Exeter. She did win a Ludlow handicap chase with ease the time before that, but perhaps this is too much of a step up in class.

Pink Legend @ 66/1

Finally, Pink Legend for Venetia Williams completes the field. The course and distance winner is a big price and by far the most experienced runner in the field. She was third in this race last year, and whilst she won a Listed contest back in the Autumn, she’s struggled in her last two starts.
