Who To Follow On Day Three Of The Cheltenham Festival 2021

Horse To Follow - Envoi Allen

Envoi Allen has been one of the leading jumps horses in the sport over the last two years and now stepping up to go over fences this term, everyone just wants to know how good he can truly be.

The Cheveley Park owned stud is a dual Cheltenham festival winner having taken the Champion Bumper and Ballymore Novices hurdle in consecutive years and is gearing his season towards a third straight win at the event in the Marsh Novices' Chase.

The six year old has gone from strength to strength under Elliott landing all 12 of his races to date, winning one point to point, four bumpers, four hurdle contests and also extended his winning run last time out in his first Grade One win over fences.

Stepping over the bigger obstacles this season, he was very impressive at Down Royal, jumping his fences superbly and showing his classy travelling ability as he has throughout his career.

Elliott then stepped him up to Grade One company at Fairyhouse in the Drinmore Novice Chase and gave another standout performance to take the event by close to nine lengths.

At Punchestown earlier this month he was looking to make it three from three over fences a Grade Three event and was giving serious weight away to the rest of the field, but with Asterion Forlonge falling at the first it made for an easier ride round and again he was foot perfect.

Trainer To Follow - Denise Foster

Denise Foster managed to land her first winner at the Cheltenham festival on Tuesday and on Thursday she has her best chances across the week.

In the Pertemps she holds a big chance with The Bosses Oscar, especially bringing in the handy 7lb claimer to take some valuable weight.

In the other events she also holds some stand out shouts with Farclas in the Paddy Power Plate and Sire Du Berlais and Fury Road in the Grade One Stayers' Hurdle.

She is in some smart form of late having six winners from her last 29 runners over the last two weeks, which sees her pose a 20.69% strike rate.

Jockey To Follow - Jack Kennedy

Jack Kennedy is one of the best young jockeys in the sport and having got his week off to a superb start when landing the Grade One Mares' Hurdle with Black Tears, he is now looking for more.

On Thursday he holds a seriously good book of rides, starting with Envoi Allen in the first, Farclas in the Paddy Power Plate and Fury Road in the Grade One Stayers' Hurdle

The young rider has been in flying form over the last two weeks having landed six winners from his last 21 rides, which sees him pose a strike rate over 25% heading into Thursday.
