Envoi Allen kept his winning run going with a convincing victory in the Grade One baroneracing.com Royal Bond Novice Hurdle at Fairyhouse on Sunday.
Gordon Elliott's five-year-old was unbeaten in bumpers for owners Cheveley Park Stud and his success in that sphere culminated in victory at the Cheltenham Festival.
After winning his maiden hurdle at Down Royal last month he was sent off the 8/11 favourite to make it six from six in his career in the Royal Bond and he didn't disappoint.
Davy Russell led from the start on the son of Muhtathir and the pair jumped well, with only stablemate Abacadabras emerging as a threat approaching the last.
However, Envoi Allen had too many gears for him and ran away for a one-and-a-half length success.
Sky Bet cut him to 9/2 from 6/1 for the Sky Bet Supreme, but he's the 3/1 favourite for the Ballymore over half a mile further at the Cheltenham Festival.
Spokesman Michael Shinners said: "Envoi Allen further cemented himself as a major force in the novice hurdle division with a tremendous performance. Gordon Elliott’s horse is now 3/1 for the Ballymore and 9/2 for the Sky Bet Supreme."
Elliott said: "That's a relief, but they are two very good horses. We like Abacadabras a lot, and we think Envoi Allen is the real thing.
"The one thing that could beat him is a slow pace, and we had to do all our own donkey work. His jumping was class, apart from the last.
"He could step up in trip, but I'll have to talk to Davy and the owners, and we'll make out mind up. He'll be entered in everything and could run next at Christmas or Naas (Grade One Lawlor's Novice Hurdle)."
