OLLY MURPHY has made rapid strides up the training ranks in his short time with a licence and with 38 winners and just under £300,000 in prize money on the board already is making the progress he would have desired now in fourth season.
The 2019-20 campaign brought a first Grade 1 winner for the Warren Chase trainer when Itchy Feet won the Scilly Isles Novices’ Chase at Sandown and he ended the campaign with 67 winners and £613,394 in prize money. The winner hungry handler will be looking to surpass that tally this time around, as well as adding more big race glory.
Thomas Darby remains one of the apples of his eye and the classy Brewin'Upastorm could well bring further glories his way, going back over hurdles. The likeable Enemy Coast Ahead is waiting in the wings for decent spring ground but there are a host of bright, young prospects that could well be familiar names to all in the coming seasons.
Olly kindly spoke to Tony Elves for attheraces.com about those he hopes can go forward for him this season and beyond.
