Cheltenham Festival 2020 Antepost Boost
Envoi Allen managed to maintain his unbeaten record in point to point, bumpers and over hurdles when landing his eighth successive win in the Ballymore Novices Hurdle at the Cheltenham festival.
The Cheveley Park owned superstar took his second Grade One over hurdles with ease, breezing past the two front runners up the hill to win going away.
He was classed as the banker of the week for the Irish and that he was but we think he can take all his unbelievable form into next year's Cheltenham festival.
He was bought to be a three mile chaser and we believe that even with going over fences next season he will be very tough to beat and worth taking a punt on for any race at next years festival.
Another of the Cheveley Park's stars in the national hunt racing team is Ferny Hollow for Willie Mullins who truly announced himself on the big stage this year when landing the Champion Bumper.
He was always tipped by the yard to be a special horse but the run he produced coming from back to front in such style to land the Grade One made him a very interesting horse to follow.
We believe that the five year old will be an even smarter prospect over hurdles next season and with the Supreme, Ballymore and Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle all in his eye line it is safer to go with him to win any race at the festival next term.
He looks a highly improving horse that should be even stronger next season.
Finally, one of the major hard luck stories of the 2020 Cheltenham festival was the Gary Moore trained Goshen, who looked certain to take the Grade One Triumph Hurdle on the Friday of the festival but fell at the final flight when 10 lengths clear.
However, Moore is looking forwards and not backwards and overall he knows he has a huge talent in his ranks that he will be targeting at the Champion Hurdle for next season's festival.
He is being planned to run on the flat before heading back over hurdles having a very tempting mark for him to run on the flat but overall he looks a huge contender for the feature hurdles race of the season next year.
Before his fall he has won his three contests over timber by a combined 68 lengths, shwoing a freak like engine to pull away from his rivals.
