Reportedly Graham Lee has lost his job with Howard Johnson-Graham Wylie with Paddy Brennan leaving as second jockey to Philip Hobbs to take over the job.<br>Lee resurfaces as stable jockey to Ferdy Murphy.<br>Odd man out appears to be Keith Mercer who was touted as being highly regarded.<br>Accepting that there are all sorts of retainers/agreements/preferred arrangements involved what do posters think of the riders relative abilities/suitablities?
Certainly looks like that. He’s a great jockey who has been a great servant to them. He put that stable on the map. Just because Inglis Drever was retired, and Arcalis and No Refuge didn’t do very well is no reason to drop him.
It seems odd and there must have been something more to it. Has made changes previously has HJ, and maybe he is a little odd. Im surprised the Wylies didnt kick up though, some loyal owners dont like trainers making changes like this.
I agree DJ, he’s not pretty but he’s certainly effective and when McCoy has had enough of coercing horses in his own inimitable way Brennan will probably fill his boots… Still a long way to go to be as good as Ruby though who I think is in a league of his own.. Anyone see him win on Oodachee the other night? how he manages to stay so motionless I have no idea
