Ton-up Tim.

TIMMY Murphy registered a personal milestone with his 1000th British National Hunt success as Wizard of Edge worked his magic in the Shoreditch Handicap Chase at Taunton yesterday.

Murphy has been marooned on 998 since Cheltenham on New Year's Day but his victory on Paul Nicholls' Ghizao in division one of the Thurlbear Novices' Hurdle brought him one short of the four-figure total.

The 35-year-old only had to wait another two hours before Ron Hodges' Wizard Of Edge delighted those who backed him down to 9-2 co-favouritism from his opening show of 8-1 in the marathon chase to make the millenary.
