The Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle is a Grade 1 hurdle race which precedes the Cheltenham Gold Cup at the Cheltenham Festival.

A hurdle over 3 miles for the best young stayers, the race features 12 flights of hurdles and is formally known as the Spa Novices’ Hurdle. The Albert Bartlett always features plenty of young-talent and a purse of £68,000 for the winner makes it a key target for trainers and owners alike from both sides of the Irish Sea.

With big fields of up to 20 runners in recent years, online bookmakers are always happy to give punters real value in this race, especially as it’s the curtain-raiser for the Gold Cup, so expect 4 places each way on the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle. Of course, offering 4 places each way at the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle is an excellent way to offer maximum profit opportunity for punters and is a promotion which will drive 2024 Cheltenham Festival new customer registrations for savvy bookmakers.

2024 Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle 4 Places Each Way

The Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle is the 2:50pm Grade 1 race, which punters love to strike gold in, building momentum for the Gold Cup. A race that was won 3 times by AP McCoy, it’s synonymous with horses with a turn of speed, but big hearts to get the 3 mile trip. Bobs Worth won this in 2011 and used the race as a platform to build a top-notch career over fences. The Nicky Henderson trained superstar, went on to win the 2012 RSA Chase and the 2013 Cheltenham Gold Cup. 2016 saw Unowhatimeanharry win the Albert Bartlett and Harry Fry’s stable star went on to dominate the stayers category in 2017 and went off favourite in the 2017 Stayers Hurdle. Willie Mullins trained Penhill defeated the impressive Monalee to win this in 2017, whilst 2018 and 2019 renewals have seen outsiders Kilbricken Storm and Minella Indo deliver for the bookmakers.

With anything up to 20 runners across recent renewals, online bookmakers payout the standard 3 places each way at 1/4 odds or more commonly 1/5 odds for this championship hurdle. However with the Albert Bartlett Hurdle being the high-profile curtain-raiser to the Cheltenham Gold Cup, a select group of bookmakers over recent years have promoted an additional place, with 4 places possible for the 2019 running. Remember online bookmakers have a new customer war chest for the Cheltenham Festival, so offering additional each way places attracts new customers who spot the value to be had. Naturally 4 places covers circa 20-25% of the field – a situation which can only drive the chances of profit.

At the time of writing, no bookmakers have extended beyond the standard each way terms. As soon as this changes we’ll confirm details here.
