Murphy targets landmark Group One success

Posted on by in | 0 Comments

Oisin Murphy says he hopes Roaring Lion can provide him with a first Group One success in Britain on Saturday.

The jockey, who has enjoyed top-level victories in France, Canada and Dubai in the last 12 months, is preparing to feature in the Coral-Eclipse this weekend.


Having enjoyed all those successes across the globe, Murphy is now hoping to land his first top level success on British shores but knows there is stern competition, with Happily expected to be a contender.


“The weight-for-age is huge and obviously Happily would get the sex allowance on top of that,” he told At The Races.


“It’s exciting. I’m very fortunate to partner horses like Roaring Lion and I want to make the most of it.


“Sheikh Fahad is one of the biggest owners in the world, he deserves success like this and I want to give it to him.”
