Courting again

Murphy, Robinson add spice to Waterhouse/Singleton stoush
ACERBIC lawyer Chris Murphy highlighted today’s racing stewards inquiry as a defamation-free zone where trainer Gai Waterhouse described his client Alan Robinson as “trumped up little jockey”.  Robinson and football legend Andrew Johns will appear at today’s inquiry to say whether they told owner John Singleton his mare was “off” and could not win the All Aged Stakes at Randwick.
Singleton said the information initially came from Waterhouse’s bookmaker son, Tom.
John’s is likely to repudiate such claims but Robinson with the assistance of lawyer Murphy will maintain his.
Murphy has already slammed the Waterhouses after the first day of the inquiry last week.
The snobbery of racing’s royal family (the Waterhouses) .. they turn me sick,” Mr Murphy told ABC radio.
He added, ‘Gai is a failed actress who married a perjurer.”
As is their want, the Waterhouses threatened legal action against Murphy who will enjoy unbridled freedom on today’s perjury free zone.
