Horse Racing - Racing: Love Envoi eyes Irish success

Cheltenham winner Love Envoi bids to follow in the footsteps of Annie Power and Honeysuckle in the Grade 1 Mares Novice Hurdle Championship Final on Sunday.

The unbeaten star, who is 9/4 to claim the spoils at Fairyhouse (15:10), produced the best display of her career when scooting away with the Grade 2 Ryanair Mares' Novices' Hurdle at last month's festival.

Fry hoping for rain

Trainer Harry Fry is keeping a close eye on the weather and praying Fairyhouse gets hit with all the rain that is forecast as Love Envoi has done all of her winning to date with plenty of ease in the ground. 

Six of her rivals on Sunday finished behind her at Cheltenham but her main danger could be Brandy Love, who was a late absentee that day. You can catch all the action on our Sports Live Streaming hub.

Fry is hoping for a first Grade 1 success for Love Envoi in the 16-runner contest which would see her end her 2021/22 campaign on a high.

Confidence high for Love Envoi

The trainer is no stranger to plundering big prizes on Irish soil as he sent over Pure Bliss to win a mares' handicap hurdle at last year's Punchestown festival, while Unowhatimeanharry rolled back the years to win the Champion Stayers Hurdle at the same track in 2019.

Fry said: "Love Envoi travelled over well and deserves to take her chance. She seems well in herself and has had a brilliant campaign.

"We're hoping this can be the icing on the cake. The forecast is for more rain, which would be a positive for her."
