Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle 2012 Race Video from RacingUK

 

Pre Race Analysis

Willie Mullin's trained Boston Bob heads the market and are the clear ratings picks but both might be more likely to run in Wednesday's Neptune Novices Hurdle. Gordon Elliot trained Mount Benbullen and Noel Meade's Ipsos Du Berlias are next on ratings and in the betting. Barry Geraghty won this last year on Bobs Worth but the Henderson team dont seem to have anything obvious for the race this year.

Jockey Tips : There have only been seven runnings of the Alfred Bartlett Hurdle and Barry Geraghty, Jason Maguire, Richard Johnson and Choc Thornton (the jockets taking the  Cheltenham Festival Tips challenge ) have won three.  With Fingal Bay a doubt for the Cheltenham Festival it has become really tricky to start guessing who rides what in this year Novice Hurdles. You can check if any of our jockeys had an antepost tip for the Albert Bartlett Hurdle here. We also have a listing of free bet offers here.
