2020 Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle entries: Unbeaten Envoi Allen heads 122 in Cheltenham Grade 1 novice contest

14th September 2021

2020 Ballymore Novices' Hurdle entries for the Cheltenham Festival includes Envoi Allen

The unbeaten Envoi Allen, a short-priced favourite in the ante post betting, features among a whopping 122 Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle entries for the 2m 5f Grade 1 at the Cheltenham Festival on Wednesday, 11 March.

Trained by top Irish handler Gordon Elliott, who saddled Samcro to land the spoils in 2018, last year’s Grade 1 Champion Bumper hero is unbeaten in seven starts under Rules.

The strapping Cheveley Park Stud owned son of Muhtathir has taken to hurdles like a duck to water this season, scoring at Down Royal before going on to land Grade 1 contests at Fairyhouse and Naas in impressive fashion.

Envoi Allen is a slick hurdler with speed and stamina who looks the real deal and a worthy market leader for this. Exciting stable companion Easywork is also engaged.

The home challenge includes the Philip Hobbs trained Thyme Hill, already a Cheltenham winner at the venue this season.

He is unbeaten in three runs over obstacles, completing the hat-trick with a battling success in Grade 1 Challow Novices’ Hurdle at Newbury when last seen in action.

Tolworth victor Fiddlerontheroof, along with The Big Breakaway, are among strong Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle entries for Dorset handler Colin Tizzard.

Nicky Henderson’s Chantry House, who carries the famous colours of owner JP McManus and was a very impressive winner of a maiden hurdle at The International meeting here which has worked out extremely well, is also included.
