Throwback Thursday Race - 17/09/20

Albert Bartlett

With the National Hunt season only around the corner we are looking back at some of the best contests from the term before and today is the turn of the Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle.

One of the races of the 2020 Cheltenham festival came on the Friday with four horses jumping the last flight with a chance of winning the race.

The contest over three miles before it went off was put down as one of the worst Grade Ones of the week but in reality it was one of the best with Monkfish, Latest Exhibition, Fury Road and Thyme Hill all finishing together.

Monkfish managed to land the spoils getting back up on the line, staying the best of the rest up the hill and taking the race for Willie Mullins who landed a four timer on the day.
