Red Mills to help decide Jezki aim

Jessica Harrington is hoping Jezki's next race will provide a vital clue as to which route to take at the Cheltenham Festival.

The nine-year-old is set to tackle the Red Mills Trial Hurdle over two miles at Gowran Park on February 18 after he returned in triumph from a 632-day absence at Navan.

Jezki, owned by JP McManus, could try to repeat his 2014 success in the Stan James Champion Hurdle next month or step up to three miles for the Sun Bets Stayers' Hurdle.

"It was a nice race for him at Navan and he went there and won easy. He's now going to go to the Red Mills over two miles at Gowran on Saturday week," Harrington told At The Races.

"After that we'll decide on his next target. He's entered in the Champion Hurdle and the three-mile hurdle.

"We'll just keep all our options open. We'll just see how he gets on next time. Time will tell."

Sky Bet, offering non-runner no bet on both races, quote Jezki at 6/1 for the Champion Hurdle and exactly the same price for the Stayers' Hurdle.
