Oisin Murphy: Complained of toothache after leading King’s Lynn to victory at Haydock
The racing community came together to help champion jockey Oisin Murphy on Saturday after the runner referred to an ongoing struggle with toothache.
Murphy was forced to retire from his last three rounds at Yarmouth on Friday, but pain didn’t stop him from securing a brace on Saturday’s Haydock card, including in the Listed Achilles Stakes aboard King’s Lynn.
The rider subsequently revealed, despite his best efforts, that he had not been able to secure a dentist appointment.
Who better by your side in times of crisis than two Cheltenham Gold Cup winning riders? Nobody, that turned out, as Paddy Brennan enlisted Sam Waley-Cohen, who is the general manager of Portman Dental, to help him.

Waley-Cohen is no stranger to helping injured jockeys achieve the perfect smiles. In addition to Brennan, he had already helped weigh-room colleague Aidan Coleman in 2015. Even Hollie Doyle shared her own before and after photo after visiting for surgery in 2018.
Murphy doesn’t have any races on Sundays, so maybe he can manage to arrange a meeting before Windsor’s Monday Night Card, where he has to compete in all but one of the races.
The champion jockey made a solid defense to his title and led the way with 23 wins.
