Forecasts

Envoi Allen (4/9), Chantry House (9/1), Shan Blue (10/1), Fusil Raffles (14/1), Asterion Forlonge (14/1), Chatham Street Lad (14/1), Darver Star (33/1), Blackbow (40/1)

Verdict

ENVOI ALLEN has passed each test with flying colours and is as exciting a chase prospect as there is around. A stable switch is unlikely to have an impact and he's rightly a short price to extend his winning sequence to 13. Shan Blue wasn't within hailing distance of the selection in the Ballymore a year ago but he's taken really well to chasing and is offered for the forecast.

  1. ENVOI ALLEN (FR)
