BRYAN Cooper, who lost his position as retained rider for leading owners Gigginstown House Stud in Ireland recently, will be a more frequent visitor to the other side of the Irish Sea this season after agreeing to ride for owner Andrew Brooks.
Tizzard is already linked to one Irish-based jockey in Robbie Power through his job with Alan and Ann Potts, and teamed up with the Gold Cup-winning rider to win the first at Newton Abbot on Monday with Drinks Interval, a horse not owned by the Potts'.
"Robbie has some strike-rate for us, you don't want to leave him at home when he's available," Tizzard told At The Races.
"We don't have a senior jockey 100% with us - I don't know if it's better or worse, sometimes it gives you a headache. We just try and keep our owners happy.
"When Joe (Tizzard) was riding for us he was either in fashion or totally out and I didn't want to be in that situation again so now if someone isn't happy, we can put someone else on.
"Robbie will school a few in the morning, including Finian's Oscar, and Bryan Cooper is coming too. He might ride a few for us, who knows, things will develop in the next few weeks so we'll see what happens."
