What has become of Seb? He came back and was going well, then I believe he went to the UK to ride??? Dunno...but I see he rode a trial at Cranbourne today for Leon 'Needles' Corstens on a horse by the name of Mosheen. Ran a handy time by the days standards..might be worth keeping an eye out for Mosheen in the comings weeks... Anyway Seb Murphy.. Gun! Hope he gets back riding here!
Yeah definite gun, I heard he did accept the contract in the UK but has since come back and was a bit overweight, he is a fairly big kid I wouldn't be surprised if it was purely down to the fact that he couldn't get his weight down for riding on the flat, I mean he would need to be 56kg and last time I was at the trials over 12months ago he was riding in those at 64kg. I hope he gets back to the track coz he was a very promising rider a little Steven Arnold esk with his patience and ability to time a run.
balance of whyte and patience of hall.expect him to chalk up a lot of provincial winners with leon.
Think he might be having a few issues unfortunately lads, clearly has some serious talent but my understanding is that he is just battling with the mental side of riding and the constant weight battle. He was having a brilliant run before he decided to have a spell because of exhaustion etc and it seems he is having the same issues now.
I'm sure I heard last week that he was very close to returning to race riding after recovering from chronic fatigue syndrome.
This horse of Needles Corsten I mentioned above, Mosheen, is nominated for the Valley on Friday... Big Watch!
don't forget MOSHEEN...nommed at the valley and Caulfield.. think he will run on Saturday...
