Trainer - Olly Murphy
Jockey - Gavin Sheehan
Another runner in last years festival, Olly Murphy’s 6 year old run a massive 3rd in last year’s supreme novice hurdle.
Beaten on season debut over hurdles, he switched to fences and has won both of chase starts.
He romped around Leicester in an easy little 3 runner affair, but immediately caught the eye with an impressive round of jumping despite not beating much.
We last saw him in the Scilly Isles chase at Sandown where he gave Olly Murphy his first grade 1 winner.
The gelding outgunned Midnight Shadow up Sandown’s stiff hill and showing a huge engine.
Slight mistakes didn’t curb his effort last time out and with a cleaner round of jumping he looks one to be going close.
