Envoi Allen claimed a dominant victory in the Join Racing TV Steeplechase at Down Royal this afternoon.

With Rachael Blackmore in the saddle, Envoi Allen cantered to its 12th win, comprehensively beating Echoes of Family into second place, with Fairyhill Run placing third.

The Henry de Bromhead trained horse endured a difficult end to last season, falling at Cheltenham in March and then pulling up at Punchestown in May. After undergoing surgery in the off-season, he was back to winning ways, notching a victory at Down Royal for the third year running.
