John Oxx: No rush for replacement

Sky Bet

John Oxx believes there will be no immediate decision on a replacement for the Aga Khan's retained Irish jockey.

Johnny Murtagh surprisingly had his contract to ride all of the influential owner's runners in the country, most of which are trained by Oxx, terminated last month.

"It's a 'best available' arrangement at the moment and I don't believe His Highness is in a great hurry to make any changes, but I'm sure he will let everyone know if he does," said Oxx.
