Harrington in no rush with Jezki
Jessica Harrington is no hurry to firm up plans for Jezki following his comeback success at Navan on Saturday.
Jezki is fine following his impressive return
The 2014 Champion Hurdle hero made a triumphant return after a 632-day absence to win the Race Displays Event Signage Hurdle.
The nine-year-old, owned by JP McManus, holds two entries at Cheltenham – the two-mile Stan James Champion Hurdle and the Sun Bets Stayers' Hurdle over three miles.
Jezki won a Grade One event over the longer trip at the Punchestown Festival back in 2015, but could stick to two miles for another race ahead of the Cheltenham Festival, the Red Mills Trial Hurdle at Gowran on February 18.
"He's fine. We'll make no decision until I've spoken to Frank (Berry, owner's racing manager) and Mr McManus. We'll have a discussion," said Harrington.
"The Red Mills is a possibility for his next run. We'll see."
