THURSDAY MARSH NOVICES’ CHASE
1. Envoi Allen 2. Shan Blue 3. Chatham Street Lad I would normally be keen to take on a horse with the hype of Envoi Allen, but with the best novice chasers contesting the other two races, he may not have much to beat again. He has looked a real pro over fences this campaign and it is difficult to see any rival capable of beating him in this. The bold-running Shan Blue looks the obvious candidate, but I feel he may set up the race for the strong-staying Envoi Allen.
