Jazz in the groove for Hambleton Racing

Popular syndicate Hambleton Racing and trainer Kevin Ryan seek further gains at Beverley on Tuesday when Magic Jazz runs in the opening race of the day.

Hanbleton Racing enjoyed a lovely afternoon on the Westwood three weeks ago when Fine Example and Havana Star both won their respective races. Magic Jazz now attempts to carry on the good work in the five-furlong Racing UK Now In HD Novice Stakes at 2pm.

Hambleton racing manager Cosmo Charlton said: “We had a great day at Beverley with our two winners, and it was great to see so many of our members enjoying the occasion. We’ve been going for 11 years now and we started off with Kevin, who trains most of our horses. We’ve a great relationship with him and have enjoyed much success over the years. Hopefully Magic Jazz can give us another good day out at Beverley."

Magic Jazz made an eyecatching debut at this track in April, when he looked very naïve yet still flashed home for seventh place behind the useful Almane. The son of Red Clubs will be ridden by Kevin Stott and breaks from stall one.

Charlton added: “He was slowly out the stalls on his debut, and it was very much a first-day-at-school sort of thing as he was quite green. He wasn’t knocked around, though, and stayed on quite nicely at the end, I felt. He’s a classic horse of Kevin’s, I think, in that he will have gained plenty for the experience. We think he’ll want further in time, but a stiff five furlongs at Beverley will suit and the ground will be perfectly fine for him. This looks a better race, but we think he’ll go very well.”
 
Feature race at Beverley on Tuesday is the £10,000 eight-and-a-half-furlong handicap (3.30), in which the David O'Meara duo of Jacbequick and Rousayan, with seven course wins between them, are sure to be popular with the locals.
