Ferdy Murphy preparing for Doncaster pre-Festival gallop

Ferdy Murphy will have eight of his Cheltenham Festival hopefuls working at Doncaster on Saturday afternoon.

The trainer will gallop his horses after racing at Town Moor and Murphy will be looking for the m to confirm their wellbeing ahead of a trip to Prestbury Park in ten days time.

Murphy has adopted a similar approach to the Festival in the past and racegoers who stay after racing on Saturday will have the chance to see the likes of Kalahari King work ahead of world’s most prestigious race meeting.

"I'm taking eight to work after racing at Doncaster tomorrow," Murphy explained.

"They all seem well, but we like to get a racecourse gallop into them. Doncaster have been very good in putting this on every year.  Everything we have entered at Cheltenham will be there. One or two might not go to the Festival, but we will see how they work tomorrow first."
