Jezki Jumps to Aintree Hurdle Glory plus Latest Aintree Movers

Jezki claimed the Aintree Hurdle after a gutsy performance on the opening day of the meeting, with AP McCoy recording success on the Jessica Harrington trained hurdler.

William Hill responded by slightly trimming Jezki for next year’s Champion Hurdle – now 14-1 from 16-1.

“It’s hard to know what route Jezki will take but he looks more like the horse he’s always promised to be,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
