Hannon has high hopes for Jazz Police
TRAINER Richard Hannon hopes Jazz Police can give a good account of himself in the Keepmoat Champagne Stakes on Saturday.
A comfortable winner of a Newmarket maiden on his debut, the juvenile was slightly outpaced in the latter stage of a Listed event at Newbury last time.
Hannon admits his charge will probablyprove better over further than this 7f in time but still believes he should run a nice race at Doncaster.
"I think he is a very nice horse but you probably won't see the best of him until he runs over a mile or even a mile and a quarter," said Hannon.
"He may even want a mile and a half next year sowhile he is a good juvenile, they may just have a bit too much speed for him.
"Soft ground wouldn't be a problem and it might bring his stamina into play."
Jazz Police will face seven rivals on Saturday, including Sir Michael Stoute's Zacinto, a hugely impressive eight-length winner on his debut and prominent in ante-post lists for the 2,000 Guineas.
Playfellow and War Native put their unbeaten records on the line, while thefield is completed by Are Can, Master Noverre, Ouqba and Westphalia.
