David Nicholson Mares Hurdle 2017 Results

The final Grade One on the opening day of the Cheltenham Festival was the David Nicholson Mares' Hurdle, which was destined to be the finest renewal since its inception, and it certainly was.



Pass The Time was the early leader, but last year's Triumph Hurdle runner-up Apple's Jade was stalking that rival, and was then pushed to the front by Bryan Cooper, and it orchestrated some urgency from the Willie Mullins-trained duo Limini and Vroum Vroum Mag, who went a little closer to the front, having been held up.





Approaching the home straight it was the first three in the betting that were set to fight it out and Vroum Vroum Mag went to the front narrowly, with Apple's Jade and Limini just in behind, but as the latter fluffed her lines at the final flight, it was Gordon Elliott's Apple's Jade that found the most up the hill to hand her handler his second win of the afternoon.
