Forecast

Envoi Allen (4/6), Mt Leinster (8/1), Neptune (8/1), Embittered (10/1), Abacadabras (10/1), Run Wild Fred (16/1), Meticulous (20/1), Ash Hill (20/1), Beacon Edge (25/1), Ebadali (100/1)

Verdict
ENVOI ALLEN had a strong reputation before he made the racecourse and he is building on it now, with impressive success at Fairyhouse and Navan already, displaying plenty pace in doing so. He concedes weight to his rivals, but looks likely to cement his place in the Cheltenham Champion Bumper by maintaining his perfect record. This is no penalty kick however. Stablemate Abacadabras, C&D winner Ash Hill, once-raced British winner Beacon Edge and Mt Leinster are all capable of bursting his bubble.
  1. Envoi Allen
  2. Mt Leinster
  3. Beacon Edge
