Worcester outing for Murray

Charlie Mann, a big fan of Andy Murray

Murray Mount would be a topical winner of the opening race at Worcester on Wednesday.

The seven-year-old is named after the grassed-banked area at Wimbledon that was commonly known as Henman Hill but is now affectionately named in homage to defending champion Andy Murray.

And in a happy coincidence, Murray will play Dustin Brown in the second round of this year's championships on the same day.

The Henry Oliver-trained Murray Mount would appear to hold strong claims in the two-and-a-half-mile handicap chase as he returns to action just 10 days after scoring by 16 lengths over the course and distance.

"He came out of his last race in really good order," said Oliver.

"The horse is a little bit in and out, but as long as the rain stays away, everything looks ideal for him.

"I think the horse was named before the owner bought him.

"I know he has mentioned he could be put up for sale at some stage."

Murray Mount was officially named by his former trainer Charlie Mann, who said: "I'm a big Andy Murray fan and go to Wimbledon every year.

"I saw the horse won impressively the other day and it would be nice to see him to do it again."
