Mick Jazz looks to have plenty going for him in the County Handicap Hurdle on the final day of the Cheltenham Festival (2.30)
The six-year-old stated his career with Harry Fry and made a winning debut for Irish trainer Gordon Elliott when landing a maiden hurdle at Cloneml following a lengthy lay-off.
Mick Jazz then ran a blinder when runner-up to Laibak in a Gerade 3 at Navan and the winner won the Supreme earlier in the week to give the form a boost.
He then ran very well to finish third in a big feild handicap at Fairyhouse before getting back to winning ways in a Listed contest at Punchetown when digging deep to beat Cilaos Emery by a neck.
Although Mick Jazz now has to race off a career-high makr of 143, 10lb higher than when third at Fairyhouse, he has only had seven starts under rules and remains open to further progression for a yard in fine form.
