Made up into a useful hurdler in 2017 and was successful on his return from a break at Limerick (2m4f, heavy) in December. Trip likely to blame for a poor effort last time.

Top class hurdler on his day ran well to finish fourth in a Grade 1 over 2m on soft ground here last month. Likely to prove hard to beat in this contest.

Betting

Forecast

Jezki (11/10), Ex Patriot (9/2), Karalee (5/1), Lieutenant Colonel (6/1), Gangster (13/2)

Verdict

Classy hurdler JEZKI can get back to winning ways by taking the opening conditions hurdle race for trainer Jessica Harrington. The selection drops in grade today and can get the better of Ex Patriot who disappointed last time out while Gangster can finish third on his seasonal bow.
  1. Jezki
