Very Wood Causes 33/1 Shock In Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle

Friday 14th March 2014

Very Wood was certainly not the premier challenger for the Irish heading into the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle, as all eyes were on hot favourite Briar Hill, but the Noel Meade-trained 33/1 outsider landed the Grade One prize for the Emerald Isle as he collared the eye-catching Deputy Dan after the last flight in taking fashion.

A gasp echoed around Prestbury Park when Briar Hill fell in the middle of the contest and it had looked as though Kings Palace would be a tough nut to crack for the red-hot David Pipe team, but he was duly tiring in the final couple of furlongs and Leighton Aspell, looking for his first ever festival winner, went to the front on board Deputy Dan.

However, Paul Carberry in his own inimitable style had cajoled Very Wood in contention and along with Dessie Hughes's Apache Jack strolled towards the front to challenge Deputy Dan, but it was the former that found more for pressure and scooted up the hill to land the coveted crown for a second win on the day for the Gigginstown House Stud.
