Albert's Back showed promise on the flat but his main aim was jumping. He won on his hurdles debut at Wetherby ridden by Brian Hughes and the same partnership followed up again at Wetherby at the end of December. He ran consistently in his novice chases, and he was third on his debut over fences at Wetherby and third at Newcastle and also runner up at Kelso. Returning to hurdles and after a ten month break Albert's Back was back to winning ways at Wetherby in November 2020 and followed up at Haydock Park in December.
