Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle: Tips, Predictions and Previews

This year, the field for the Novices’ Hurdle at Cheltenham is looking fairly even. There are no overwhelming favourites, which should make for an interesting and competitive race. That said, there are definitely a few horses worth keeping an eye on.

Appreciate It is leading the pack at 14/1. That’s a mere 6.7% implied probability, which tells you something about how tight the competition will be. The six-year-old gelding was trained by Willie Mullins, who also trained two of the last five champions.

Also worth keeping in mind is Holymacapony. The four-year-old Irish gelding was trained by Henry De Bromhead and is coming into the race in great form. Holymacapony closely follows Appreciate It as a favourite, with slightly more generous odds of 16/1. Finally, Ballyadam and Cape Gentleman (both 20/1) are also turning heads. The former was trained by Gordon Elliott, boasting an undefeated record in hurdles. The latter was trained by Emmet Mullins, debuting in the National Hunt in December 2020 at the Punchestown Maiden Hurdle.
