Not riding for his retainer today in the Listed race at Bath, but presumably that's because he's been given free rein to go where he wants in pursuit of the title, rather than because he's been a naughty boy!

Andrew Balding had / has a runner in each of the two 8.5f maidens at Nottingham, but Murphy not on either of them, possibly because  they're not expected today?

George is his retainer not with Qatar Racing?

Yes, Mr C, they ran Thousand Oaks in the Listed race at Bath, but the ride was taken by their second jockey Cieren Fallon, with Murphy riding at Nottingham.

I remember posting on here pre Covid having been chatting to a couple of lads in Leopardstown who were from the same area as Murphy, and them saying he's not that well liked down there and his TV persona was 'just an act'.

To be fair to the bloodstock guy he could have got Murphy into a lot of trouble, particularly with multiple witnesses there.

He could, Murphy is a very lucky violent drunk.

Who's the agent?

I'm going to guess not a physically imposing one!

Former jockey?

Must have been well passed to hit someone in the face with a plastic glass, otherwise he'd be looking at a charge of Abh with intent and being in the slammer for 6 months at least!
Hope he learns a lesson quickly.
