FormscanBy Mark Nunan - ENVOI ALLEN can sometimes throw in a poor run as he did in last season's King George but he has a flawless record first time out and should be too good for these. He beat Kemboy in a Grade 1 at Down Royal on his reappearance last term and was right back to his best when defeating Shishkin in the Ryanair at Cheltenham. Easy Game excels in these small-field contests and is going for his third win in this race. His only defeats in his last ten starts have been in successive renewals of the Galway Plate and he will be there to capitalise if the selection is below-par. Gentlemansgame looked an exciting novice prospect when beating the subsequent Irish National winner at Leopardstown last Christmas but didn't run again. This is a stiff task for one with so little experience.
