Oisin Murphy: Tweenhills filly Run Wild is one to watch
In his new role as Sporting Life columnist, reigning champion jockey Oisin Murphy has given a list of 20 horses he's most looking forward to riding this year and amongst them is a filly owned by the Tweenhills Fillies Syndicate.
Oisin rode Run Wild - who is also part-owned by Meridian International - in four of her six starts as a two-year-old in 2019 when she won a Kempton novice by a wide margin and ran well in three Stakes races.
She was fourth of nine under Oisin in the Gr.2 May Hill Stakes at Doncaster, runner-up under Pierre-Charles Boudot in the Gr.3 Prix de Reservoirs at Deauville and third under Harry Bentley in the Listed Montrose Fillies' Stakes at Newmarket.
Oisin told the Sporting Life: "Run Wild has always been a little bit hot-headed, Maisy rides her at home and has done a super job at getting her to relax. She wears a hood at home but she won’t wear it at the races, it’s just to keep her calm.
"She did a little bit on the grass with Rab Havlin the other day and he was very happy with her. She’s not a quickener, she’s a galloper, but she looks a miler type as she needs to relax in her races.
"I felt she should’ve won the May Hill Stakes at Doncaster last September, James Doyle rode us to sleep on Powerful Breeze. But Run Wild has done very well physically, she’s very strong, very tall, she’s superior, physically, to most fillies and I’m quite excited about her."
Also on Oisin's list were Qatar Racing horses Darain, Enemy, Heart Reef, Kameko and Selino.
