Earlier in the year, we highlighted Oisin Murphy as our pick for the 2019 Jockey’s Championship and he’s started the campaign in flying fashion! He’s got a brilliant book of rides at Chelmsford on Thursday as he looks to continue his momentum, and you can find all of our Chelmsford Betting Tips on site now!
In recent years, Silvestre De Sousa has dominated his opposition with an incredible combination of work-rate, and just winning! Oisin Murphy has set out to try and match that relentless pace from the get go, riding 149 mounts already this season, including seventy-seven in the past two weeks! With a 27% strike-rate, red-hot Oisin is showing no signs of slowing down.
It’s impossible to dislike or discredit Silvestre De Sousa, the ultimate professional who works extremely hard day in and day out. There will be no deterring him from trying to retain his crown, but Oisin Murphy currently holds a five-winner lead and is matching the incredible bar he’s set in recent years in terms of work-rate and simply put, winning!
He can, and he certainly will. Silvestre De Sousa routinely travels up and down the country for full books of rides, day in and day out, being many trainer’s first pick in terms of a spare ride. With his newfound partnership with King Power Racing, he’s being supplied with all the ammunition he needs to get back to Oisin’s quarters!
Oisin Murphy rolls into Chelmsford as the in-form jockey in the country and has an enviable book of rides, including four well-fancied horses. Moon Trouble is well drawn to attack in the second race of the evening, while Fields Of Athenry will be looking to build on a recent Wolverhampton score. Geizy Teizy broke her maiden at Windsor on her second career start and looks to overcome a penalty, with course and distance winner Top Command holding a big shout in the 8.05pm!
William Hill is best priced on the four runners, with the acca returning a whopping 1079/1, if you’re currently aboard the Oisin Murphy fan train!
