When is the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle 2024? Cheltenham date, start time, runners and betting

Stamina's key to the spud race!

Stay Away Fay wins the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle in 2023

The spud race is the last of the top-level novice contests at the Cheltenham Festival.

Despite being one of the newer events on the schedule after its introduction in 2005, the Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle has thrown up a whole host of future staying stars including subsequent Gold Cup winners Bobs Worth in 2011 and Minella Indo in 2019.

Corbetts Cross ran out of last year’s renewal in dramatic fashion at the last flight as Stay Away Fay dug deep into his stamina reserves to hand Britain’s leading trainer, Paul Nicholls, his first win in the race.

You can run the rule over our Albert Bartlett Novices’ Hurdle odds on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise all the key details about next year’s renewal can be found below.
