Restless Harry is reported to be in tip-top shape by trainer Robin Dickin ahead of the Cheltenham Festival.

The six-year-old delighted connections when put through his paces on Tuesday morning as part of his preparations for the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle on Friday week.



Restless Harry is a top-priced 7-1 for the three-mile event and that is his preferred engagement although he still holds an entry in the Neptune Investment Management Novices' Hurdle over a shorter distance.



"He's really well. He did a good piece of work this morning and had a good blow. I'm very happy with him," said the Stratford handler.



"I put him in the field afterwards for a bit of peace.



"The Albert Bartlett is the intention especially with the weather. That has sort of confirmed it.



"We've had absolutely no problems at all with him since his last race."



Restless Harry enhanced his claims for the Festival with a victory at Cheltenham in January over General Miller after finishing second in Newbury's Challow Hurdle on his previous start.
