Mur­phy takes Load mount

Halifax Courier - - Courier Sport Racing -

TIMMY Mur­phy has picked up an­other use­ful Punchestown ride for Henry de Bromhead and owner Alan Potts.

The in­jury to Andrew Lynch al­lowed Mur­phy the plum spare on Siz­ing Europe next week and he has been booked for Loosen My Load in the Gro­wise Cham­pion Novice Chase.

The geld­ing was third in the Jew­son Novices’ Chase at Chel­tenham and fol­lowed up with a sec­ond in the Pow­ers Gold Cup.

“Timmy Mur­phy will ride Loosen My Load in the Cham­pion Novice Chase as we try him over three miles for the first time,” the trainer said.

“Our ini­tial re­ac­tion af­ter the Jew­son was that he might just ben­e­fit from a step up in trip and his sec­ond last week at Fairy­house seemed to con­firm that.

“He’ll en­joy the pre­dicted good ground.”
