The first race of the day at Punchestown on Sunday sees one of the spectacles of the day in Ireland with Envoi Allen giving 11lb to Asterion Forlonge in the Grade Three 2m4f Killiney Novice Chase and although it looks his toughest test yet, we can't see past Gordon Elliott's superstar.
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 11 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.
He is looking to make it three from three over fences on Sunday in this Grade Three event, but he will be giving serious weight away to some classy horses and will have to be at his best.
