    Alan Lee in The Times:

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Paddy Brennan said his farewells yesterday and is to join Nigel Twiston-Davies with immediate effect.

    It is expected that Johnson will instal Denis O’Regan, presently based with Noel Meade in Ireland, in another upheaval at the yard transformed in stature, if not stability, by the multi-millionaire businessman, Graham Wylie.

    Yesterday, Brennan said: “Nigel Twiston-Davies and I have reached an agreement. I’m on my way to see Mr Wylie and I shall be thanking him for the rides he gave me.â€ÂÂ

    I am somewhat surprised that big owners such as Wylie and the Magniers have all their eggs in one trainer basket – given that trainers strings seem to come in and out of form, virus’s etc.

    I wonder if Johnson’s propensity to switch jockeys when Wylie is then quoted as saying Lee, Brennan will still ride for us etc will cause Wylie to reflect on the advisability of keeping all of his string – both jumpers and flat horses – with one trainer.

    Magnier doesnt have all his eggs in 1 basket, he uses David Wachmann and Fozzy Stack as well. He also uses O grady for most of his NH horses but has used Jonjo, Swan, Moore and Roche over the years. I do agree that Wylie shudnt stick all his with Howard johnson and i would like to see him mayb use four trainers but Jp’s operation with 1 in every county is a mess.

    Btw i think he has made a mistake in getting rid of Paddy and i think Dennis isnt near as good and will be out the door by this time next year. The whole outfit seemed down to earth at the start but they seem to be hard to work for now but Lee was dissmised for good reason imo.

    I have it on good authority that the circumstances surrounding this move bear no similarity to those which brought about the sudden departure of Mr. Lee ;).

    Perhaps Paddy was prone to bouts of the sniggers at the sales during particularly expensive suggested purchases?
