Jezki to run for McManus

Leading Supreme Novices' Hurdle candidate Jezki has been bought by JP McManus, trainer Jessica Harrington has confirmed.

The five-year-old is unbeaten in four starts over timber, most recently in the Grade One Future Champions Novice Hurdle at Leopardstown over Christmas, where he beat McManus' Waaheb by six lengths.

Prior to that he had won the Grade One Royal Bond Hurdle at Fairyhouse.

Harrington tweeted: "I can confirm that Jezki has been bought by J.P McManus and I am excited to say will stay in training with me!! #Jezki"
