THURSDAY MARSH NOVICES’ CHASE
1. Envoi Allen 2. Chantry House 3. Shan Blue Envoi Allen will win, wrapping up the treble on the favourites in the Grade 1 novice chases. He’s not flash but he gets the job done and remains unbeaten under rules, two of those being at the festival. The seven-yearold is bomb-proof and it’s wasted characters trying to find something to oppose him. Chantry House needs to step up on what he’s done so far over fences but his class is evident given his third in last year’s Supreme. Shanbluejumpssuperbly and should have a few of these on the stretch.
