Martello Sky features among 33 entries for the Grade Two Parnell Properties Dawn Run Mares' Novices' Hurdle at The Festival™ supporting WellChild. The five-year-old has won both her starts over hurdles, latterly scoring at Market Rasen.

Her trainer, Newmarket-based Lucy Wadham, revealed: “She has run pretty well everywhere she has run. We have not got to decide today whether she goes to Cheltenham but if you don’t have the entry you can’t run and I felt she earned her entry after Market Rasen on Sunday.

We could have done with a stronger pace, which she is almost certain to get at Cheltenham, on Sunday at Market Rasen but she still managed to win. I think her form is very good as Allavina who she beat over hurdles first time out won at Taunton on Tuesday. She ran well on her previous visit to Cheltenham in a Listed bumper. It rained all afternoon and she didn’t disgrace herself in the conditions. We will definitely have a close look at the race but it’s too early to say if we will go.

“The race had been on the back of the mind but you rarely get a horse good enough for Cheltenham. We were going to try and get her qualified for the Grade Two mares’ novice at Newbury but she would need another run to qualify and that is over two miles five and I don’t think she needs that yet. We’ve always liked her and she comes from a fantastic family that I’ve done well with in the past.”

Willie Mullins says: “I’m not sure we had the right tactics for Gauloise at Fairyhouse. We may have given away the initiative but maybe we learned a lot more about her there. I’m hoping that she’ll come back to form with more forceful tactics.”
