What horses and trainers should I watch out for?

Envoi Allen is the star of the show today as he is odds-on to make it three Cheltenham Festival wins on the spin, after winning the 2019 Champion Bumper and the 2020 Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle.

Formerly trained by Gordon Elliott, until Cheveley Park moved all their horses out of his yard, he is now under the stewardship of Henry De Bromhead.

Willie Mullins has a strong hand in the Ryanair Chase, saddling Allaho, Melon and last year’s winner Min.

What is the featured race for Cheltenham on Thursday?

The featured race for Thursday is the Stayers Hurdle which features favourite, and 2019 champion, Paisley Park.

Expect both Sire Du Berlais and The Storyteller to go well here after they were the first two in last year’s Pertemps – a race ran quicker than the Stayers Hurdle later that day, on the same track.

That probably rules out Lisnagar Oscar who won that Stayers Hurdle but could still get in the mix while the Flooring Porter is an interesting runner from Gavin Cromwell.
