Apple’s Jade has been cut to 11/10 for the OLBG Mares’ Hurdle at Cheltenham after a gutsy victory in the Christmas Hurdle at Leopardstown.
Gordon Elliott’s charge turned in a battling display to see off Supasundae by half a length in the Grade 1 renewal.
It was a fifth straight success for the five-year-old who has now won seven races at the highest level.
Connections have suggested that back-to-back Mares’ Hurdle triumphs are the aim for the daughter of Saddler Maker.
Meanwhile, you can get even-money on Elliott’s star winning any race at the 2018 Cheltenham Festival.
