Betfair Ambassador Olly Murphy gives his thoughts on his entries this week including Undefined Beauty who aims to complete a hat-trick of victories...
"On Thursday I have runners at two meetings. Hurricane Rita goes to Towester, her homework seems better than her mark so I'd be hopeful she will go very close and she is my best chance of a winner this week."
A good week with a double at Fakenham being the highlight last Tuesday. Saucysioux was very impressive and has been given an 11lb hike by the handicapper for her win. Mullaghboy got off the mark having his first run in a handicap under young Lewis Stones who gave him a great ride.
I have a fairly busy week with runners starting today at Ludlow in the 15:50 where Saucysioux will try and shoulder a 7lb penalty. She came out of her Fakenham win well and I'm trying to beat the handicapper by running her again quickly. Jack Barber's horse looks the main danger and has also been very well backed.
I will run Undefined Beauty at Hereford on Wednesday where she is trying to complete a hat trick of wins. She seems in good form and will handle quick ground.
Dunkereen will run on the same card in the bumper. He will wear a first time tongue tie and a hood. He ran well on debut and will be suited by a truer run race.

More Than Luck goes Taunton on the same day. He was purchased out of Sam Thomas's yard and although he doesn't do anything quickly he should be well capable of being competitive off his mark and he looks like he stays very well.
Two new horses to the yard, Whiskey In The Jar and Sangha River may go to Doncaster on Friday or Bangor on Saturday. They are a pair of lovely horses who both do everything nicely at home and I'm looking forward to getting them on the racetrack.
I've bought some lovely juveniles from the sales in the past three weeks, plenty which are still for sale and coming along nicely. Watch my blog for updates or contact the office if interested.
Lastly, I had a great evening at Villa Park last week when Villa beat Sunderland 2-1. I was lucky to be in the players box with Tommy Elphick and John Terry, a memorable evening! We are climbing up that table!
