Mares Novices Hurdle 2020 Tips

Minella Melody

Comes into this race with the best form and is justifiable favourite for the race an will probably win.


She nearly won this race last year. needs to improve her jumping, but worth considering.


Is a good value EW bet at 8-1. She was comfortably beaten by Minella Melody last time out. But won her previous race to that by 1

Santa Rossa

Only one run this season and should come on from that. 16-1 seems a generous price for her.
