Oisin Murphy celebrated a sensational six-timer at Nakayama on a memorable Monday for Britain’s champion Flat jockey.
Murphy, who won the Japan Cup aboard Suave Richard in November, enjoyed a five-timer at Tokyo last year but went one better with six victories from 11 rides on the card following a double at the same track on Sunday.
The Sakae Kunieda-trained Succession provided Murphy with feature-race success in the Listed Junior Cup, worth ¥20,322,000 (£142,916/€167,939) to the winner.
Succession was Murphy’s fifth winner at the meeting following earlier strikes aboard American Face, Tokai Etoile, Hiraboku Queen and Satono Unison.
