The battle of the mares lights up the opening day of a Cheltenham Festival like no other with 2020 Champion Hurdle winner Epatante putting her title on the line against Honeysuckle.

One is the reigning champion while the other is unbeaten throughout an extraordinary career so something has to give and it is far from a two-horse race with a rejuvenated Goshen also thrown into the mix.
