BRENDAN Murphy captured the lion’s share of the €5,000 on offer at the final round of the Gain/Alltech National Grand Prix league in Tipperary last Sunday.

Riding Helen O’Regan and John Hoyne’s nine-year-old gelding City, Murphy saw off stiff competition from 26 starters to prove best of the 11-strong jump-off and claim the win. Galway rider Tim MacDonagh was crowned the overall league winner at the venue.
