Harrington's options open

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, while Saludos also took the Flyingbolt Novice Chase at Navan on Sunday.
"All the horses have come home fine, with not a bother on them," said a delighted Harrington.
"Bostons Angel jumps really well and stays -- he looks to have all you need in an RSA horse. I haven't put Saludos in any Cheltenham novice events so he's not certain to go there. If he does, he could go for the Grand Annual but there would have to be some cut."
