4.50 Cheltenham – Mount Ida – WON 3/1 (Adv 13/2)

A completely unexposed mare coming over from Ireland, she’s been running in small field graded races and could well have just been plotted for this by the stable. She’s bred to stay and did run very well over a trip just shy of this distance when 2nd in a maiden hurdle back in 2019, having also won a point to point over 3 miles. Hailing from a yard that targets this meeting, she can’t go unbacked in a race where she is the unknown quantity against a field largely consisting of exposed older horses.
