Forecast

Envoi Allen (1/4), Entoucas (6/1), Zenon (9/1), Front View (11/1), Fauguernon (16/1), Lost Oscar (20/1), Exultation (33/1), Fox Le Bel (50/1), Jail Boreen (50/1), Dreal Deal (66/1), It's A Hoofer (66/1), Empire Escape (66/1), Sois Gentil (66/1), Autumn Berry (80/1), Willyouwalkwithme (100/1), Dont Go Yet (100/1), Durrow Dancer (100/1), Headline Joe (100/1)

Verdict
Champion Bumper winner ENVOI ALLEN looked every inch a star in the making last season, winning all four starts. He promises to be better still over hurdles and it would be a disappointment should be meet with defeat here. His trainer saddled five winners here yesterday and should be at it again now. The long-absent Zenon is a fascinating runner for Willie Mullins, while Entoucas got close to last year's Supreme Novice on one occasion and may yet have more to offer.
  1. Envoi Allen
