Opie Bosson is the new rider for last-start Gr.3 Counties Cup (2100m) winner Maygrove in Saturday's Gr.3 SkyCity Hamilton Waikato Cup (2400m) at Te Rapa.

The champion jockey takes over from Johnathan Parkes, who was aboard the Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman-trained Authorized seven-year-old for his wins in the Feilding Cup (2100m) and Counties Cup, who is ruled out on Saturday through suspension.

Bosson, who married Trackside presenter Emily Murphy since last riding, returns to riding at Tauranga next Friday.

“I'm looking forward to getting back. I'm a bit hungry actually and I'm looking forward to riding Maygrove again. He was tough at Pukekohe last time and he knows how to win a Cup,” said Bosson, who began a suspension on November 18.

“I need to win a couple - after all, I've got a wife to support now.”
