It’s quite apt that the race will start in the same year as the new Grandstand will be finished, fully open and operational for the thousands of spectators that flock to the Festival each year.

It was no surprise that the 28th race at Cheltenham was a mares event as the trainers and owners have been calling for more opportunities in the mares programme. This race worth £75,000 to the winner and sponsored on its inaugural running by Trull House Stud will surely attract the best young horses in training.

Simon Claisse, Cheltenham clerk of the course and Jockey Club Racecourses regional head of racing, welcomed the introduction of the contest.

He said: "With the great success of the David Nicholson Mares' Hurdle, which was promoted to Grade 1 for this year's renewal, and the recent promotion of the mares' National Hunt Flat race at Aintree to Grade 2 status in 2016, it was concluded that the introduction of a mares' novices' hurdle at next year's festival was appropriate.

"We're very grateful to the BHA for having allowed the Trull House Stud Mares' Novices' Hurdle to start out with Grade 2 status."

The first winner of the Mares race was Limini trained by Willie Mullins, she was heavily backed and went off teh 8/11 favourite and won by an eay 4 1/2 lengths.
