Selected at: 25/1

Olly Murphy quickly garnered a reputation as a trainer who did well with others cast offs as soon as he took out a licence. He takes over with the selection from his old boss Gordon Elliott which has to make this all the more interesting. Two pounds above his last winning mark, that is helped by a smart three-pound claimer in the plate, with this a softer level than he has generally been seen in.

Verdict

Progressive 6yo FUNAMBULE SIVOLA (nap) was beaten by one with a better turn of foot last time but remains very much of interest.
