Could well be past it considering how flatter he was by the previous race conditions...I do also think that its worth noting it was heavy ground...and as Jessie said, he has never been quite as good on that surface...winning once beating Un Beau Matin in 2012. Granted a lot of the time since then he has been racing the Fly who was good in the conditions...I think Jezki is past his best by quite a way. Ridiculous to have seen him 6/1 for the Champion Hurdle. He had every chance of a bounce and I wouldn't back him for anything at Cheltenham.Yanworth didn't impress me for him to be competitive at 2m I think he needs a bigger field for a true pace and to jump better. The former might happen, the latter is on him.
Jezki done by Tombstone over in Ireland might see him pushed towards the stayers event now.
I've been with Brain Power at 12/1, 10/1 several times and have been topping up at 15/2. I won't back anything else and it's Vegas or Bust for me here. Maybe he won't be good enough but there has been so much bad value in the race and he's one of the few who looks to be improving and likely to be suited by decent ground.
Yanworth's best run remains the Christmas Hurdle and it looks flimsy to me.
Jezki always seemed to improve for the spring and better ground and whilst its hard to see him coming back to his very best again, i still wouldn't rule out improvement over the festivals
