Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle
Court in Motion heads the betting at 6/1 but Festival Trails day will give a clearer picture
It’s a race that produces many of the following season’s top novice chasers, and the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle is certainly a betting market to keep an eye on.
Just seven line up in the ante post Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle betting market, but with Festival Trials Day at Cheltenham coming up on January 29th, punters will be able to garner more of an idea once the trials have been completed.
However, should one of the horses with the longer odds win at Cheltenham on January 29th their Albert Bartlett odds will be slashed and canny punters may want to run their eye over the field before Festival Trials Day.
With Ladbrokes offering a free bet worth £25 for new customers who sign up here, an ante post bet is the best way to maximise the offer.
Court in Motion currently heads the betting at 6/1 from Backspin (8/1) who is entered, but is more likely to run in the Neptune Investment Management Novices’ Hurdle on Wednesday.
That leaves So Young and Champion Court, both available at 12/1, Join Together (20/1) and Teaforthree and Pride in Battle who are both priced at 25/1 in the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle.
Festival Trials Day is an important form guide for this race and this was proven in 2007 when Wichita Lineman went on to win the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle following a win at the Festival Trials Day.
A £25 stake on Pride in Battle winning the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle would return £650. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
