One Trainer, One Jockey And One Apprentice Jockey To Follow During the 2022/23 Jumps Season

Trainer To Follow - Olly Murphy

This season we think British trainer Olly Murphy can have a big season, going under the radar last term having not hit the heights he has in other season but this has now left him with some very well handicapped horses to go to war with this season.

A trainer that has superb connections to some of the biggest national hunt owners in the sport, mostly coming from his time with Gordon Elliott when assistant to the Cullentra house trainer.

Murphy has some very nice horses at his arsenal this term with Brewin'upastorm, Washington, Thomas Darby, Go Dante and Itchy Feet leading the way.

Murphy will know that last season did not go to plan but with plenty if horses on lesser marks than what they should be on leaves him with plenty to go a this term and our trainer to follow.

Jockey To Follow - James Bowen

A jockey that could have a really big season is James Bowen who is the second string rider for Nick Henderson and this season could be given more opportunities than in previous seasons.

Having a good relationship with the top trainer in Britain, but also picking up rides for other smart handlers like his father Peter Bowen, up and coming handler Toby Lawes and other smart proven figures in the sport.

Bowen during the last 12 months has proved himself and some by running at a consistent strike rate of 18%, having
330 rides 59 winners and 65 places.

One to watch this season hopefully getting some bigger rides in the better races.

Apprentice Jockey To Follow - Thomas Doggrell

Finally, the apprentice jockey that could be worth keeping an eye out for this term is Thomas Doggrell who has been trusted by the likes of Tom Lacey last season to ride some of his better horses.

Gaining good experiences on the likes of Grade Two winner Lossiemouth could set him up for a big season this term, hopefully gaining some bigger rides throughout the term.

Having 15 winners to his name heading into the 2022/23 season still sees him have his 7lb claim which could be vital for some handler to use.

Keep an eye on him.
