Sport Timmy Murphy

Tinie Tempah was one of the celebrity names at Newbury yesterday, jockeys' temper one of the talking points. An incident in which Timmy Murphy was injured after coming to blows with fellow-rider Dominic Elsworth on Friday is to be investigated by the British Horseracing Horseracing Authority, with a hearing scheduled for Thursday. The men could face charges of bringing the sport into disrepute.

Racing: Williams icy about Cone's prospects

IT IS not always easy to pinpoint the moment when a trainer stops being "up-and-coming" and starts being a leading member of the profession. Some make the transition through sheer durability, by sticking around long enough, and sending out just enough good winners. But not Venetia Williams. She muscled in to the top ranks in the time it took Teeton Mill to annihilate his field in the King George VI Chase, almost precisely one year ago.

Racing: Heavens opening for Blessed in Hennessy

THE LAST TIME Newbury held a race meeting, you could have enjoyed a picnic in the middle of the home straight without running the slightest risk of injury. Not so tomorrow, though, when easy going will ensure a healthy field for the Hennessy Gold Cup, and anyone who is feeling the November chill will be able to warm themselves on the glow of satisfaction radiating from Mark Kershaw, the clerk of the course.

Racing: Montjeu heads market

MONTJEU, the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe winner, has been installed as the 11-8 favourite for Saturday's Japan Cup by Coral. Japan's Special Week, who finished second last year, is the 9-2 second favourite, with Mark Johnston's Fruits Of Love on 6-1. High-Rise, the 1998 Derby winner, who is yet to sparkle this season, is available at 8-1.

Racing: Bad work rules out Hennessy favourite

FOLLOWERS OF the Hennessy Gold Cup favourite, Stormyfairweather, who stayed behind after racing at Kempton last night to watch their hope limber up for Saturday week's Newbury feature, were able to warm themselves on a big bonfire of ante-post betting slips as darkness descended on the Sunbury course. Nicky Henderson's chaser, partnered by Mick Fitzgerald, trailed in about eight lengths behind his stablemates Bacchanal and Fiddling The Facts at the end of the two-mile work-out and will miss the Hennessy for which he had been 7-1 favourite.
