Harrington well in running for Oscars at Cheltenham

Oscars Well is likely to head up a strong team for trainer Jessica Harrington at the Cheltenham Festival. The Co Kildare trainer has tasted Cheltenham glory with Moscow Flyer in the past and holds big chances this year with Oscars Well in the Neptune Investment Management Novices' Hurdle and Bostons Angel in the RSA Chase.

Both horses advertised their Festival claims by winning their second Grade Ones of the season at Leopardstown's rearranged meeting on Saturday. "All the horses have come home fine, with not a bother on them," said a delighted Harrington.

"It was a great weekend and I've never known one like it.

"Oscars Well was never off the bridle and never looked in any trouble. He handles soft ground well but he's a very good moving horse so quicker ground will not be a worry for him at all.

"Bostons Angel is out in the field now. he's bucking and kicking and you wouldn't know he'd had a race. He jumps really well and stays -- he looks to have all you need in an RSA horse."
