Betfair Ambassador Olly Murphy saddles two runners at Uttoxeter's meeting on Saturday. The trainer gives his thoughts on his duo's chances in Staffordshire...

Handicap debut for Duque

14:45 - Del Duque

It was a much better effort last time from Del Duque at Bangor, when he ran on well to finish second. I think the extra three furlongs and the long straight at Uttoxeter will suit him. This is his first run in a handicap, he's got top weight and he is still very inexperienced. If the lack of experience doesn't catch him out, he'll have a good each-way chance.

Galloping track will suit Mistercobar

15:50 - Mistercobar

Mistercobar is a consistent horse who always runs his race, he jumped and travelled well for most of the way at Stratford last month. I think the drop back in trip will suit him and he'll love the galloping track at Uttoxeter. He's 4lbs higher than his last winning mark but top Amateur James King claims a handy 5lbs off his back. With a bit of luck, he'll go close.

Olly Murphy,
