THURSDAY MARSH NOVICES’ CHASE
1. Envoi Allen 2. Chantry House 3. Fusil Raffles Envoi Allen should prove in a different league and it’s not surprising that opposition could be fairly thin on the ground. Unbeaten in four bumpers and four novice hurdles, including two Cheltenham Festival successes, Envoi Allen has looked imperious over fences this season. He earned his highest RPR of 165 at Punchestown in January and better ground at Cheltenham offers no concerns. Chantry House – third in last year’s Supreme – might prove the sternest challenger.
