The Mares' Novices' Hurdle is a Grade 2 National Hunt hurdle race, open to fillies and mares aged 4 years and older, run over a distance of 2 miles 1 furlong on the New Course at the Cheltenham Festival.
It was first run in 2016, bringing the Cheltenham Festival up to a total of 28 races. The race was won by the Willie Mullins trained Limini. With just 1 previous running of the race is difficult to draw to many conclusions into the nature of the race, but short priced Willie Mullins horses have 100% record in the race (said with a smile).
