Olly Murphy: Alpha Carinae is ready for the step up at Doncaster

Betfair Ambassador Olly Murphy
Olly has four runners at three meetings this weekend

Betfair Ambassador Olly Murphy discusses his four runners this weekend at Doncaster, Kelso and Huntingdon, including a good each way chance at the Yorkshire course...

"She doesn’t look too badly in at the weights and I’d say she has a good each-way chance."

14:20 – Alpha Carinae

Doncaster

Unexposed contender makes handicap debut

13:45 - Ginistrelli

Ginistrelli has his first run in a handicap. He's unexposed and hasn't got a lot of experience. He's had a winter break and a wind op, so hopefully he'll run well at a big price with Fergus Gregory taking 3lbs off his back.

She'll handle the ground following winter break

14:20 - Alpha Carinae

Alpha Carinae is stepping up in both class and trip after having a winter break and I think she will handle the good ground well. She doesn't look too badly in at the weights and I'd say she has a good each-way chance.

Kelso

Dropping back in bid to finish in the money

15:15 - Hunters Call

Hunters Call drops back to two-miles for a race that has some very good prize money. He's been ultra-consistent in all of his handicaps so far this season and it would be great to think he can finish in the money again under Aidan Coleman.

Sunday

Huntingdon

Hoping for a respectable hurdles debut

14:00 - Wireless Operator

Wireless Operator makes his debut for me here. He's in good form, albeit he has no experience over hurdles, but he jumps well at home. It's a competitive looking race so it will be nice to build on some fairly average bumper form and he's more of a horse for the future.
