Day Three of the 2021 Cheltenham Festival is packed with quality races and that includes the Marsh Novices’ Chase, with this being a contest over two miles and four furlongs and it’s an extremely competitive heat that attracts plenty of the star talent from England and Ireland.

This race is also known as the Golden Miller who was a legendary horse at the Cheltenham Festival and it could be that we’re talking about another horse of that ilk in years to come, with Envoi Allen having impressed everyone with his performances so far.

Can Envoi Allen be a Banker in Marsh Novices’ Chase?

Envoi Allen is trading at odds-on with the vast majority of online bookmakers right now for the Marsh Novices’ Chase, with the six-year-old having swept all before him so far in his career. At the 2019 Cheltenham Festival, the runner really put himself on the map when winning the Champion Bumper at odds of 2/1 and he then returned to the meeting a year later and proved successful again.

There was everything to like about the horse’s victory in the Ballymore Novices’ Hurdle when he made easy work of beating Easywork into second place, with the runner sent off at 4/7 and it might be the case that we see him at a similar price for the Marsh.

While Envoi Allen has multiple entries for different 2021 Cheltenham races, the chances are that he will be seen in the Marsh Novices’ Chase and it might be worth waiting for the bookies to offer Non-Runner No Bet should you want to get an early price.

Who Can Beat Envoi Allen at 2021 Cheltenham Festival?

While Envoi Allen will be regarded as a red-hot banker at Cheltenham, there are going to be plenty of other quality horses in the Marsh Novices’ Chase and this includes Shishkin who won the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle twelve months previously and could potentially go close in a race such as this one.

Nicky Henderson saw his horse comfortably win a two-mile chase on soft ground at Kempton recently and it means that the runner has now enjoyed five consecutive victories and that bodes well for the Festival.

Monkfish is another horse that could land a victory in the Marsh Novices’ Chase, with Willie Mullins having seen his charge pass a series of recent examinations and that included a win in the Neville Hotels Novice Chase over Christmas at Leopardstown.


We reach the halfway stage of the Cheltenham Festival and hopefully there is still money left in our pocket as we approach Day Three of the meeting which takes place on Thursday 12 March, 2020.

The Marsh Novices’ Chase gets us underway and looks like an attractive race, with Faugheen trading as the favourite with most bookmakers and it’s easy to see why punters are latching on to the Willie Mullins-trained horse.

FAUGHEEN has a long association with the Cheltenham Festival and finished third in last year’s Stayers’ Hurdle, with the 12-year-old now being sent over the bigger obstacles and he’s won twice already this season over timber.

Indeed, both victories were pretty convincing, with Faugheen triumphing by over seven lengths at Punchestown before thrashing Samcro in the Boxing Day encounter at Limerick and the horse could be backed down to short odds for this one.

However, perhaps there is a chance that SAMCRO will turn the tables on his adversary come March, with Paddy Power offering a best price 12/1 about the Gigginstown horse who has had more than his fair share of injury worries.

Gordon Elliott has an excellent record of getting horses primed for the big meetings and the eight-year-old could yet strike the right balance over bigger obstacles.

There are lots of well-known horses entered for this renewal and it naturally follows that some won’t run in this race and potentially be re-routed to another race at the Cheltenham Festival instead.

However, JP McManus is sure to have a presence in the race and perhaps Champ can line up for this clash, with CHAMP having won twice this season before falling in his most recent outing.

The eight-year-old scored two successes at Newbury before falling on New Year’s Day, although he was second in the Ballymore at last year’s Festival and looks the sort who will run well at Cheltenham.

Fakir D’oudairies has developed a habit of finishing in the top two for every race he appears in and the Joseph O’Brien-trained charge is clearly open to further improvement at the tender age of five.

Having won at Navan and Fairyhouse a few weeks ago, the horse then finished second behind Notebook at Leopardstown and we’re expecting him to make a big showing by the time spring comes around.

Black Op is also entered and the Tom George-trained beast is still adjusting to the bigger fences after underwhelming over hurdles when it really mattered last year. He was especially disappointing in the Stayers Hurdle when finishing well down the field.

However, the fact that Black Op hasn’t been out of the top two in his three outings to date suggest that he could have a say in this opening race on Day Three.
