Connections of Jezki are keen to let the dust settle after his Champion Hurdle triumph before deciding on plans for the remainder of the season.

Fitted with a hood for the first time, Jessica Harrington's six-year-old got the better of fellow JP McManus-owned runner My Tent Or Yours to claim hurdling's biggest prize in the hands of Barry Geraghty.

If Jezki is to run again this season, it would appear a straight choice between the Aintree Hurdle and the Punchestown Champion Hurdle.

Harrington said: "He has come out of the race good, I'm really happy with him.

"We haven't made any decisions about the rest of the season. I haven't had a serious talk (with connections) yet, so we'll see what they want to do.

"Punchestown is just down the road, so we'll see.

"We'll be keeping the hood on. Why change something that worked so well?"

McManus' racing manager Frank Berry echoed Harrington's sentiments.

He said: "Both horses (Jezki and My Tent Or Yours) came out of the race good and they are both having an easy week.

"We'll probably decide on plans early next week."
