WHAT HAPPENED LAST YEAR - ALBERT BARTLETT 2022

down

Willie Mullins completed a hat-trick on the day as The Nice Guy ran out a comfortable winner of the Albert Bartlett under Sean O’Keeffe. The seven-year-old took his record to four wins from four starts as he stepped up in trip and proved that his stamina could match the extra distance. After appearing to want to go one way past Minella Crooner, who finished second, O’Keeffe switched his approach to the final hurdle and after clearing it with ease, The Nice Guy powered on to win by five lengths. Bardenstown Lad, who ran a solid race at 20-1, came home in third.
