Willie Mullins’ mare is now favourite with some bookmakers for the Mares’ Chase.
Mares' ChaseSee All Odds
Colreevy as short as 3/1 for Mares' Chase
After an easy success at Thurles, Colreevy’s odds have been slashed for the first running or the Mares’ Chase at this year’s Cheltenham Festival.
6/1 before the race, the eight-year-old’s price was halved with some bookmakers into as short as 3/1.
5/1 is still available with two firms.
Colreevy made it the perfect three from three over fences without having to get into top gear.
The opposition may have not been the best, but she won very well and deserves her place at the top of the market after her three efforts so far this term.
Benie Des Dieux also at head of market
However, Willie Mullins may have seen enough today to decide that Colreevy is his number one for this.
Punters will be awaiting news surrounding her running plans, with Colreevy backers sure to be eager for Mullins to go down a different route with Benie Des Dieux.
However, Colreevy herself is entered in the former RSA Chase as well as the Marsh Chase so it may not be a forgone conclusion that she takes up this assignment.
