Summary

A undoubted rising star of the sport of horseracing.

Apprenticed to Andrew Balding but now getting many rides from other trainers, Oisin Murphy could be a force to be reckoned with in the future.

Four winners, including in the feature race, on Scottish racing's Ayr Gold Cup day in September 2013 signalled his arrival on to the big stage of a special new talent. Similar form on such a competitive day would have been striking had it come from champions Richard Hughes or Ryan Moore, but here was an 18-year-old apprentice doing the business.

Another graduate of the renowned Irish pony racing circuit and nephew of three-time Cheltenham Gold Cup winning rider Jim Culloty, Murphy's name is set to become a lot more familiar this year. He spent the 2013/2014 winter in Australia, riding mainly for Danny O'Brien and with a total of 13 winners, gaining huge plaudits.

And he set his experience in stone when winning his first QIPCO British Champions Series race aboard Hot Streak in the Betfred Temple Stakes at Haydock Park when he made virtually all the running and held off the late challenge of Pearl Secret by half a length. There could be many more Series victories to come and he excelled when riding the outsider Red Galileo in his first Investec Derby ride, coming home in fifth place.
