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: Danoli returns to linger in limelight

TWO YEARS ago, the chance to see Danoli run at a racecourse in Ireland would put thousands on to the attendance. Back in 1994, he put a hundred times as much into punters' pockets when he won the Sun Alliance Novices' Hurdle. He opened fetes and received bagfuls of fan mail, like Desert Orchid and Red Rum rolled into a single, brave little Irish package, until the leg injury which almost killed him seemed to stop the bandwagon in its tracks.

ANTE-POST UPDATE

Words: Vamp

No sooner had the Government produced its White Paper for the reform of the Upper House than it hit another snag. This time it was a bit of a row over the appointment of Lord Wakeham to head the Royal Commission, or, as the Evening Standard's Patrick Hennessy put it, "to oversee the revamp", which was crisply put. But wasn't there something rather undignified about Mr Hennessy's choice of word for this historic constitutional change?

Racing: Bobby a dazzler in the Newcastle mud

BOBBY GRANT provided his trainer Chris Grant (no relation) with the biggest success of his training career by taking yesterday's Dipper Novices Chase at Newcastle yesterday. The eight-year-old chestnut, scoring for the first time over fences, overhauled Course Doctor on the run-in to take the Grade Two two-and-a-half mile contest by half a length. The favourite, the ex-New Zealander No Retreat, lost his unbeaten record in Britain in a weary third place.

Racing: Danoli on target for Gold Cup attempt

TOM FOLEY, the trainer of Danoli, said yesterday his charge would run in the Cheltenham Gold Cup. The 11-year-old has been injured but will be among the entries for the Gold Cup today.
