Kilbricken storms to Albert Bartlett triumph for Colin Tizzard

Kilbricken Storm Kilbricken Storm caused a 33-1 upset as he showed stamina in abundance to win the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham.
A first winner of the week for trainer Colin Tizzard and a first ever at the Festival for 19-year-old jockey Harry Cobden, Kilbricken Storm powered up the hill after heading long-time leader Fabulous Saga at the final flight.
Although the pack closed near the line, Kilbricken Storm was home and hosed as he scored by three lengths and a length from the Nicky Henderson-trained pair of Ok Corral and Santini, who was sent off the 11-4 favourite.
