Verdict

It's difficult to get away from the obvious chances of the Gordon Elliott-trained ENVOI ALLEN. The five-year-old won as he liked on hurdling debut in a Down Royal 2m½f contest on soft ground and can build on that 6½L victory at the expense of stablemate, Abacadabras who did little wrong when landing the Grade 3 'For Auction' novice hurdle at Navan over a similar trip last month. The Willie Mullins-trained Foveros looks a lively outsider representing respected yard who have won this contest on seven occasions since 2008 including four of the last five renewals.
  1. Envoi Allen
  2. Abacadabras
