Harrington considering Jetara's options at Punchestown

Jessica Harrington is debating which hurdle race to enter with her mare Jetara, who won a Grade 3 and was listed earlier in the season, at the Punchestown festival.

The six-year-old, who was placed at Grade 1 in her most recent races at Leopardstown and Fairyhouse, will race at that level once more in either Friday's Alanna Homes Champion Novice Hurdle or  Coolmore N.H. Sires Bolshoi Ballet Irish EBF Mares Champion Hurdle on the final day of the festival.

"I don't know which race she'll go for yet, I'd say she'll race against the boys (on Friday) with Lossiemouth going for the mares' race," said Harrington. “The mares novice is no good to her so we'll either go to the Grade 1 mares or the two-and-a-half against the boys, I'd say that's probably the most likely getting the 7lb. I just don't want it tacky for her.”
