    Mares Novice Hurdle 2019

    Unashamedly a plug for my horse, Robin De Carlow, who won her maiden hurdle on Friday.

    In itself a fairly humdrum affair but made more interesting by looking at the two previous winners of this race.
    2016 Airlie Beach (NHF RPR 107/RPR for this race 127)
    2017 Mystic Theatre (115/131)
    2018 Robin De Carlow (112/128)

    The main stat for the short history of the Mares Novice is that the winner is a Mullins trained favourite so it's probably worth compiling a list of his possible runners and keeping an eye on how they progress. So far:

    Robin De Carlow
    Very like Airlie Beach in that she's not very big and was very green in her bumper.

    Chante Neige
    Fetching 3yo performance for Macaire but not seen since moving to Closutton. Favourite in the early betting.

    Came to Ireland with a big reputation. Fell in the race last season but won her maiden in May (RPR 126).

    Near the top of the bumper fillies and mares. Yet to run over hurdles.

    Same as Colreevy.

    Whispers last season but didn't run. Won her maiden in May (RPR 132).

    There will also be a number of expensive imports and there is currently a log-jam in mares bumpers because of the fast ground. Willie doesn't like running two in the same bumper unless one is owner ridden or there's black type up for grabs. As 7yos can't run in the Cheltenham bumper, if a current 6yo bumper mare is going to Cheltenham it will be in this race and it's worthwhile keeping an eye on the mares bumpers through the autumn.

    All the talk last year was that Salsaretta was the one and it was only when Laurina was on the track we all realised what a beast she was
