Boston Bob: Could make his eagerly awaited chasing bow next Thursday
Boston Bob, the highly regarded ante-post favourite for the RSA Chase could make his fencing debut at Thurles next Thursday.
The Willie Mullins-trained seven-year-old is rated as highly as 151 over hurdles, but had always been earmarked for a chasing career.
Boston Bob is a Grade One winner over hurdles and signed off last season with an honourable second in the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham in March.
He is one of 45 entries for the www.thurlesraces.ie Beginners Chase over two and a quarter miles.
