Big guns delight Mullins

Three of Willie Mullins' big hopes for the Cheltenham Festival all came through a workout at the Curragh earlier this week with flying colours.

Current champion hurdler Hurricane Fly, brilliant mare Quevega and the exciting novice Boston Bob all jumped a few hurdles in their work over a mile and a half.

The County Carlow handler said: "I am very happy with how they went. They all worked well and all they jumped very well, particularly Boston Bob, his jumping was immaculate, he just looks a real natural."

He added: "It's a matter of keeping them sound from now until Cheltenham."

Boston Bob holds entries in the two-mile-five Neptune Investment Management Novices' Hurdle and the three-mile Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle.
