Verdict

Jezki is from a very strong jumping family and could hardly have done any better than make a winning start in what looked a strong newcomers race over the C&D in January. He'll have come on for the experience but so will FORCED KIN, who ran extremely green on his debut at Thurles where he travelled very well for much of the way and can take advantage of the weight received from his main rival. Jessica Harrington, who trains Jezki, holds a strong hand as newcomer The Big Easy is bred to have plenty of pace and could prove a threat to all.
