Jett Horseform jumped his rivals into the ground to run out an emphatic winner of the Grade Two Devenish Chase at Fairyhouse.

The eight-year-old had not won for 14 months, but put that right with a superb performance to give trainer Jessica Harrington a double after the earlier victory of The Holy One.


Robbie Power made his intentions clear from the outset by dictating affairs on Jett, who enjoyed himself in front.

Jett (7-1) kept up the gallop and his good jumping to cross the line four and three-quarter lengths clear of The Storyteller.

“We’ve finally got the key to him. He didn’t get hassled going around there,” said Harrington.

“He looks after himself jumping and he’s probably more of a three-mile horse. I’ll probably keep him going during the summer now as he loves that good ground.

“Even though he’s a great, big horse he loves that ground, like the whole family. He’s a half-brother to Jezki, Jered, Jenari and Jetson.

“He’s not in any of the graded races at Punchestown, but he’s in a two-and-a-half mile handicap.

“In big handicaps he’s too careful a jumper to hold his own. Even there, going to the last fence first time around, he put in a short one, he’s careful.

“Robbie said he had a lot in hand and he will stay three miles. If he’d go quick enough I’d run him in the Galway Plate, but I’m not sure he’d like it. He might get a bit of confidence now.”
