This limbo situation is beginning to really drag on without an announcement. Rides tonight at Aintree also rode 2 winners for JP this week.

Didn't ride for a fortnight after Punchestown and since then riding extremely sparingly for the green and gold. Often riding JP's second/third string or getting a single mount.

The rumours for months are that he is sacked but no announcement/finalization. It's surely embarrassing for him-what's the plan - retire after a decent winner at Galway.

I would have thought there isn't a legally-binding contract but almost playing out like there is. How is it resolved without the green and gold letting the mask slip.

A very public ongoing situation, racing media all over it as per normal on the gravy train.

Don't think JP's animals are up to the usual standard the last couple of seasons.
