Oisin To Benefit From Absence Of Andrea?

Oisin Murphy could be the key man to benefit from Andrea Atzeni leaving Qatar Racing and William Hill offer 2/1 that Oisin rides a Group 1 Winner for Qatar Racing in the UK next year.


Murphy, who is already retained by Qatar Racing, may now get the pick of the rides. Henry Candy’s exciting filly La Rioja could be one to watch in some of the bigger races (she’s 20/1 for the 1000 Guineas).


“Oisin Murphy and Sheikh Fahad looked very friendly chatting together at Tattersalls Sales this week, so he looks the key jockey to benefit from Andrea Atzeni’s defection,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
