Murphy ready for Festival; RACING.

FERDY Murphy feels he has another strong team heading towards the Cheltenham Festival next week.

Festival regular Kalahari King will have another go in the Ryanair Chase, having finished second last year, but it is in the handicaps Murphy looks strong.

Divers will return and will have Tony McCoy in the saddle with stable jockey Graham Lee injured. De Boitron finished fourth in the Grand Annual last year and has that race as his aim again.

Murphy said: "I've got a lot of horses who want good ground and two weeks ago it looked like I was going to be able to run them all and then the rain came again."
