Bostons Angel Claims RSA Chase for Jessica Harrington on Festival Day Two

Wednesday 16th March 2011

Bostons Angel made amends for the Jessica Harrington stable, which had earlier been robbed of victory when Oscars Well fell in the Neptune Novices Hurdle, by winning the RSA Chase on Day Two of the Cheltenham Festival. The seven year old came into the race with winning form on his side after taking his last two races, including last time in a very valuable Grade One at Leopardstown. He travelled well throughout the three mile race but saved his best until the Cheltenham Hill where he fought off a determined challenge from Jessies Dream, with Wayward Prince hanging on to be third.

Time For Rupert, the banker of the Festival for many punters and hot favourite to win the race ran very poorly from the off. He was never travelling and was under pressure a long way out with jockey Will Kennedy having to shake the reins from as early as the third fence, by the time he did respond it was far too late.

Quel Esprit from the Willie Mullins yard looked set for victory before falling three out which left the race between Bostons Angel and Jessies Dream, a finish that was guaranteed to produce another Irish winner, their sixth so far of the Festival. Bostons Angel won with odds of 16/1, while Jessies Dream was at 10/1 and Wayward Prince a 15/2 chance.
