Not sure if he’s fallen out of love with the game over here, but I remember an interview he did with Matt Chapman not that long ago saying he was over all his previous problems and really knuckling down…..Matt questioned him a few times and said why should we believe after he had let people down before and if he was going to make a go of it and realise his undoubted potential and he assured him he would?
He’s now living over in Australia and think he’s riding there (although injured at the moment) and not sure if he’s planning on returning any time soon?
Sorry if this hijacks the thread, but what happened to Paddy Merrigan?
He was another talented yet…obstinate conditional who got sacked by most of the big yards. My enduring memory of him must be throwing his helmet away in rage after Special Envoy fell when leading the valuable fixed brush hurdle at Haydock.
