Pressure eases for Harrington
Jessica Harrington admits the fact Jezki's no longer favourite for the William Hill Supreme Novices' Hurdle has taken some of the pressure off.
Unbeaten in four starts over hurdles, the five-year-old has won the last twice at Grade One level.
Subsequently bought by JP McManus, who has My Tent Or Yours, the red-hot market leader for the Festival opener, in training with Nicky Henderson, Jezki heads to the Festival off the back of a three-month break.
"Jezki hasn't run since Christmas and hopefully we can get him fit enough - if he was as good as at Christmas I'd be happy, but I imagine he'll improve a bit more," said Harrington.
"The other horse (My Tent Or Yours) being the likely favourite takes the pressure off a bit, but it looks a very hot race this year."
