Divers: Tony McCoy rides at Cheltenham
Divers: Tony McCoy rides at Cheltenham

Ferdy Murphy worked a team of Cheltenham Festival horses after racing at Doncaster on Saturday.

Heading his string was Divers, a winner there 12 months ago, who will be ridden by champion jockey Tony McCoy in the Byrne Group Plate.

"Having AP (McCoy) on Divers at Cheltenham is a big plus," said Murphy.

"The Hollinwell goes for the Kim Muir, Kalahari King is in the Ryanair, De Boitron runs in the Grand Annual and Riguez Dancer goes for the JLT Specialty Handicap Chase.

"They went a mile and six, just a nice swinger. It was really good, all the lads were happy."
