Envoi Allen, which is being trained by Gordon Elliott, has now secured two Cheltenham Festival victories in his belt while also keeping an unbeaten of nine race, with his eyes now on the Grade One Baroneracing.com Drinmore Novice Chase at Fairyhouse.
Having to marvel at Envoi Allen’s recent races of victories, his owners could be said to be nervous and also looking forward to his performance at the Drinmore Novice Chase at Fairyhouse, as www.cancasinos.ca have dropped the odds ahead.
The Cheveley Park Stud-owned horse will be seeking to increase his impressive unbeaten record in the Grade 1 Novice Chase, which is set to hold on Sunday despite having two Cheltenham Festival winning under his belt.
Envoi Allen had no troubles transitioning to fences at Down Royal, and he seems to have adapted flawlessly thanks to those victories he acquired. That won’t stop his owners from praising him when he pulls up an impressive performance.
Speaking to the media, managing director of Cheveley Park Stud, Chris Richardson said: “He’s a pretty special individual and barely put a foot wrong – if he did put a foot wrong – at Down Royal.
“He’s the ultimate professional, a very intelligent horse, and is a joy to be involved with. We’re fortunate to have him and he’s giving Mr. and Mrs. Thompson a huge amount of pleasure.
“The Drinmore at Fairyhouse is next and hopefully he can continue in his current vein.”
He continued: “He takes everything in his stride, he’s perfectly balanced, he’s a horse who just knows what he’s got to do.
“It’s all a bit nerve-wracking really, you are up on a pedestal waiting to be knocked off, but at the moment we’ll enjoy it. The longer this unbeaten run goes the harder his first defeat will be to stomach I imagine!
“It’s just frustrating we can’t go at the moment, it’s a great shame but that’s the way it is – thankfully racing is on and we can watch on TV.”
