AB NOVICES HURDLE BETTING PREVIEWOne of three Grade 1 contests on the final day of the Cheltenham Festival is the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle. It's a Grade 1 National Hunt hurdle race, run over a distance of about three miles, for horses aged four years and upwards. This makes the race the starting platform for many young horses, who go on to have great racing careers at a high level.
Despite being one of the newest races at the festival this event has already provided us with high class winners, thrilling finishes and more. The AB Novices' Hurdle is where we will see future Gold Cup and future Stayers Hurdle horses.
Who will win the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle 2021? We'll take a closer look at this year's Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle and try to determine which horse is likely to prevail in this race.
Beaten on his hurdles bow in the autumn at Stratford (2m 6f, good) when he finished second to The Bull McCabe, BARBADOS BUCKS comes at Prestbury Park with three minor events over this trip between November and January. He rubber-stamped his Festival ticket with a stylish Kempton victory.
STATTLER ran a perfectly credible race when finishing third to stablemate Gaillard Du Mesnil at the Dublin Racing Festival. He fought off stablemate Glens Of Antrim in the Pigsback.com Maiden Hurdle at the end of December and put himself right into the picture for a tilt at this race.Anyway, his stamina is questionable as he has never raced over a trip as far as this.
Denise Foster-trained FAKIERA is also prominent in the betting. He had three runs in maiden hurdles between 2m and 2m 2f last season and was second in all of them. He was a winner of a Grade Three race at Navan back in November, but he has subsequently been beaten six lengths in a Grade Two race at the same track.
ALAPHILIPPE shaped like a thorough stayer on his first three starts over hurdles plus relished the step up to three miles when a 14-length winner at Haydock last time out. His only blip for Alaphilippe this season was when he finished a narrow second over an inadequate trip and track at Taunton.
TORYGRAPH is progressing nicely and has appreciated the step up to this trip on both occasions. His stamina could be a pivotal facotr in this contest.
ADRIMEL has done nothing wrong this season. He gave Tom Lacey one of the biggest wins in his career by taking the Grade Two Leamington Novices’ Hurdle at Warwick last month.
STREETS OF DOYEN has been in fantastic form this season and landed the biggest win if his career over the course and distance back in October when ridden by Richard Johnson.
