Bostons Angel returns triumphant after winning the RSA Chase
Bostons Angel won the RSA Chase for Jessica Harrington at Cheltenham in a thrilling finish from Jessies Dream and Wayward Prince.
The 16-1 chance had to be brave under Robbie Power as he was driven all the way to the line to repel challenges on both sides.
He eventually prevailed by a neck from 10-1 shot Jessies Dream with Wayward Prince (15-2) a further three-quarters-of-a-length back in third.
Power said: "I thought Oscars Well was my best chance of the week - he was terribly unlucky.
"This lad is as tough as nails and he never knows when he's beat.
"At the top of the hill I was going nowhere, I set him alight at the bottom of the hill and he galloped all the way to the line."
Harrington said: "He's so tough, unbelievable. I've been saying all along he wants three miles and the tougher it is the better he likes it.
"I actually thought the Midlands National was the race for him. He proved me wrong so we came here.
"I always had a sneaky feeling he was the right horse for this race. He stays really well, he jumps soundly and you can kick him into every fence and he gets himself right.
"He's very easy on himself. He doesn't like having his head in front for too long and he just does enough."
