IN form trainer Olly Murphy is hunting for more prize money at Kelso, on Monday, with The Wolf in the £20,000 William Hill Leading Racecourse Bookmaker Handicap Hurdle.

The Warwickshire trainer has enjoyed a fabulous start to the year with a strike rate of 46 percent with his first 26 runners of January.

Murphy has three potential runners on the card including Jetaway Joey in the final race, the national hunt flat race.

But is the feature race of the day, the William Hill sponsored two-and-a-half mile handicap hurdle, which is the target for The Wolf.

Among thirteen other entries revealed for the race on Monday is Lake View Lad, who is warming up for a tilt at the Grand National later in the Spring. Nicky Richards relies on the useful Better Getalong who won a bumper at Kelso three years ago. Sandy Thomson, whose Greenlaw stable is in great heart, has entered McGowan’s Pass who was a 14-length scorer at Ayr earlier this month.

In the first race on the programme, at 1.15pm, Sandy looks likely to run Sirwilliamwallace whose second behind highly-rated young hurdler Marown at Ayr is looking strong form. James Ewart, who has had a quiet season to date, has entered two in the novice hurdle – Sao Maxence and Tortuga Bay.

Nick Alexander landed the Racing To Work Handicap Hurdle, the second race on the programme, last year with Landecker ridden by his daughter Lucy.

The Kinneston combination could be represented again with Ryedale Racer.

Nick Alexander, James Ewart and Lucinda Russell are all two-handed in the third race, a two mile handicap chase, where preference is for Russell’s Celtic Flames who was only beaten 7 lengths when finishing fifth at Newcastle last time.

Glenduff, who was runner-up in the bumper on this card twelve months ago, upset a Colin Tizzard ‘hot-pot’ when winning on his hurdle debut at Carlisle in November for Greystoke trainer Nicky Richards. Running in the famous colours of Trevor Hemming, Glenduff is an intended runner in the 3.45pm – the 2 mile novice hurdle.

Dusty’s Choice, trained by John Quinn and owned by Paul & Clare Rooney, could provide the stiffest opposition.

The first of seven races gets underway at 1.15pm and the gates open at 11.30am.
