Irish jockey Oisin Murphy has copped scathing reviews for his ride on Sir Pass I Am at Chepstow overnight.
Despite winning the race punters are furious that Murphy had eased down Sir Pass I Am with over 100 metres til the finishing post.
Murphy had a commanding 7-length lead with 200m to go in the race but only managed to win by a neck on the line.
Punters took to social media to express their anger with some calling for the jockey to be banned.

A crying shame Oisin Murphy wasn’t caught on the line there. Arrogant little clown.

@ABaldingFans Oisin Murphy is a bloody disgrace. He needs banning for a year. What was that about in the 8:40
