Trainer Jessica Harrington has confirmed Jezki will tackle Hurricane Fly for a second time in the BHP Insurance Irish Champion Hurdle at Leopardstown on 26 January.

The four-times Grade One winner emerged with plenty of credit after coming off second best behind Willie Mullins' incredible gelding, who was collecting an astonishing 18th top-level triumph.

Harrington said: "He's come out of the race very well, I'm very pleased with him.

"I was very happy with how he ran on the day. There'll be another day for him, hopefully.

"He'll be entered for the Irish Champion Hurdle and, all being well, that's where he'll run."
