Olly Murphy: Views on Sunday runners at Leicester and Carlisle
Betfair Ambassador Olly Murphy has a quieter Sunday, with two runners in action at Carlisle and Leicester. As he explains, both horses are in with a chance of victory...
Best Chance - It’s O Kay in the 12:25 at Carlisle
My mare can get off the mark here
13:15 - It's O Kay
This mare is an awful lot better than she showed in the Newbury novice hurdle she contested earlier this month. That was her first run in nearly 200 days and, while I thought I had her forward enough, she seemed to get tired in what will probably prove to be a good race. I respect the mare of Alex Hales but this looks a good opportunity for my mare to get off the mark and I'll be disappointed if she's not fighting out the finish.
One of my better chances this weekend...
12:25 - Garrettstown
He won his bumper well for us back in April and I liked his chances in the Newbury novice hurdle he contested in November. I think he found the two miles on good ground just a bit sharp and that's why I'm running him here over 2m4f on soft ground. From what I have seen at home, he has come on for that Newbury experience and has thrived for getting that run under his belt. I don't know a lot about the opposition but this guy would be one of my better chances over the course of a busy weekend for the yard.
Best Chance of Sunday: It's O Kay in the 12:25 at Carlisle
