RUBY WALSH

Envoi Allen is an incredible horse.

If someone said to you ‘go back to Cheltenham and pick one horse to bring home with you’, I think Envoi Allen is the horse most people would take.

He just looks incredibly versatile. He could definitely be a Champion Hurdle horse and a Gold Cup horse as well.

The racing world is at his feet. He seems to have everything. He’s got a great temperament, he’s a great jumper, he’s got a turn of foot, bags of stamina.

He looks flawless, and of all the hype horses last week he’s the one that really delivered most emphatically.

One of the most memorable at Cheltenham was Champ. 

Perhaps it wasn’t a standout display, with the other two slowing quicker than he was finishing, but it looked like he had a burst of pace at the end and managed to get home quicker than them. It was great to watch.

In the Bumper Ferny Hollow exceptional. We know how much Appreciate It was fancied but to win it that easily coming from last to first was very impressive.

And in the Cross Country the French horse Easyland hammered Tiger Roll and third-place Out Sam. He’s probably going to be the very short-price favourite for the next couple of years.

I’d say the most memorable was probably Champ. The most impressive Envoi Allen. The biggest disappointment  was Defi du Seuil in the Champion Chase. 

But Envoi Allen, and maybe Goshen, are the ones you’d stick in your horse box and take home.
