Kings Court is very good but I rated Good here 12 years ago, so this is finetuning. David Paulowich once came up with a rule for a CV from looking at Chancellor here as tri-compound:

In Move_Length, Paulowich suggests self-contained movers Nightrider, Bishop, and Rook go unlimited distance, bi-compound go up to four steps, and tri-compound like this Chancellor up to two. Kings Court Chancellor is limited Queen plus Knight, or short Bishop + short Rook + Knight. The other new piece Jester is unique and not like mimicking Jesters of other games.
