Daily Nap August 24: Oisin Murphy key to Jumby's chances at Salisbury

Planet Sport tipster Pete Farries selects his daily nap from the evening meeting at Salisbury on Tuesday, August 24.

6.05 Salisbury - Jumby

I'm going to take the Eve Johnson Houghton runner of Jumby - there's a very good jockey booking here as well in Oisin Murphy.

This runner got a really good third at Newmarket last time, especially after very bad performances at both Newmarket and Royal Ascot before that, although the Class and ground didn't suit Jumby that day.

Jumby has looked good and is definitely progressive. This is a field that has runners that you could argue are better but I do think this race will suit Jumby more than the others. Jumby is an interesting runner, and while the yard needs to improve a little bit, a great jockey booking and a horse that could, and should, do better this time makes Jumby the one for me.
