ALBERT BARTLETT NOVICES HURDLE TIPS
The first of my 2020 Albert Bartlett tips is going to be LONGHOUSE POET, who has placed in two Grade Ones on his last two starts. Jamie Codd’s mount was very keen early in the Nathaniel Lacy and didn’t jump that well, but was still only beaten two lengths by Latest Exhibition.
Longhouse Poet was the impressive winner of a point-to-point last January and should improve with the step up to three miles. We saw what shape Martin Brassill got stablemate, City Island in for the Ballymore last term and there’s plenty more to come from Longhouse Poet.
Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle
Formerly known as the Spa Novices’ Hurdle, the Albert Bartlett on Cheltenham day 4gives budding stayers the chance to show off their stamina at the Cheltenham Festival, around the Gold Cup race. Moulin Riche won the first edition of the Albert Bartlett in 2005 and he was joined on the roll of honor by Bobs Worth, who went on to win the Gold Cup two seasons later.
Each novices’ hurdling will be severely tested and staying power will be at a premium, as the runners round the turn for home and pound up the hill at the end of a grueling, three-mile trip.
