Brennan leaves Howard Johnson stable

Last May I wrote a piece about Graham Lee leaving the Howard Johnson yard. At the time Ferdy Murphy was quick out of the stalls to secure Lee's services as his new stable jockey.

A little over twelve months later and Nigel Twiston-Davies has emulated Murphy's trick, taking on Paddy Brennan following that jockey's split with Johnson. Twiston-Davies, it will be remembered, lost out to the Pipe stable earlier this year in a bidding war to secure Tom Scudamore's services. Paddy Brennan, who rode 74 winners last season, appears an excellent appointment.

On the other hand, all would not appear well at the Johnson / Wylie setup.
