English term or phrase:a few cards fall my way now
"Over the last few years my best results have been on indoor tracks, and with six races left we're not even half way through the championship yet, so let's hope a few cards fall my way now and we'll see what we can do," said Ham.
an uncommon idiom - something to do with playing cards
Explanation: I don't think this is a common idiom. Perhaps it means he hopes to get 'dealt a good hand (in cards)' = get some lucky breaks... or it could be a technical term from sport. (Maybe consider trying English-mono Kudoz...)
