The race as the title suggests will be open to mares only who are five or older and they will face a total of seventeen fences over the two-mile, four-and-a-half furlong trip.

What the expert says...
Only four renewals of the Mrs Paddy Power Mares Chase so far, all four winners came into the race having won last time out, they were all in the top three of the betting and no bigger than 3/1. With the race being such a new race it's hard to take trends seriously here but it seems to pay to go with one of the fancied runners.
