The Jessica Harrington-trained five-year-old cemented his claims as a leading contender for honours at the Cheltenham Festival when he defeated Waaheb by five lengths in the Paddy Power Future Champions Novice Hurdle for his second consecutive Grade One triumph.



"To say we are all delighted with Jezki's performance in the Grade One Paddy Power Future Champions Novice Hurdle would be an understatement," the County Kildare handler told her official website, www.jessicaharringtonracing.com.



"I was absolutely thrilled. He won more impressively here than he did in Fairyhouse and he never even came off the bridle.



"Probably the slightly better ground helped him and he just loves going left-handed, he's definitely better left-handed.



"The better the ground, the better for him.



"Robbie (Power) was also delighted and believed that that's the best ground he's had all year and that's the best performance he's put up all year.



"Cheltenham is the plan and we need to get him there in one piece.



"He will probably take in the Deloitte Novice Hurdle on his way there.



"His future definitely looks bright."
