TOM CALVERT MEMORIAL NOVICES’ HURDLE (DIV 1) (GBB RACE)

(Class 5) (Hurdle turf Novice) (2m) 2m½f Good to Soft

A very pleasing run from Magic, all going to plan. This was the stronger of the two divisions, with the leading pack of six made up of very decent horses, all set for the trip. Magic kept going nicely in mid field jumping really well, obviously outpaced 3 out, but then responded really well and galloped to the line to take 6th place. 

James was happy with how he has matured and we were delighted with how he travelled and managed all the preliminaries with confidence. Martin plans to give him a couple more trips over 2 miles, he will have learned a lot and come on for this race, so there is much to look forward to. See jock report below.
