OLLY MURPHY has made rapid strides in his three season with a trainers licence and with 33 winner and £309,437 in prize money so far he is well under way to bag another personal best this term.
The 2018-2019 season saw the Warren Chase Stables trainer notch up 82 winners and £662,549 in prize money and he came close to a Cheltenham Festival success last March when Thomas Darby finished runner-up to Klassical Dream in the Grade 1 Supreme Novices Hurdle.
Thomas Darby could well be the sort to line-up for the Arkle Challenge Trophy this time after a very promising chasing bow at Warwick recently and looks an early Christmas present when venturing over fences again shortly.
The likeable Nickolson should be another adding to the payroll and if all remains well with Sangha River then who knows how far he could climb.
Skandiburg looks another going places in handicap hurdle company and to top it off the Stratford-on-Avon outfit have a team of bumpers horses waiting in the wings who could well be the envy of all.
With the season in full swing, Olly kindly spoke to Tony Elves of ATR about those he hopes can take his training career a further step up the ladder.
