    Dawn Run Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle

    The Dawn Run Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle is a Grade 2 contest run over 2m 1f, which is open to fillies and mares aged four or older. Four-year-old horses carry 10st 9lb and entries that are five and over shoulder 11st 2lb. It was first run in 2016, expanding the Festival meeting to 28 races over the four days. It is currently sponsored by Trull House Stud. Leading Irish trainer Willie Mullins saddled the inaugural winner of the contest in the shape of red-hot favourite Limini. Rated one of the 2016 Cheltenham Festival bankers by many, the mare was backed into 8/11 and never gave her supporters an anxious moment. Limini travelled strongly throughout before quickening clear on the run-in, after being produced at the last by jockey Ruby Walsh to score easily by 4 1/2 lengths from Dusky Legend. Mullins was at it again in 2017 with another fancied favourite Let’s Dance, who vastly outperformed highly-rated stablemate Airlie Beach, to land a four-timer teaming up with Walsh on day 3 of the Festival. Dusky Legend was again placed, but can no longer be considered a novice, behind Barra for Gordon Elliott and owners Gigginstown House Stud.
