Ben is one of the leading jockeys in the UK and is already into treble figures for the third season in a row and is well on target to beat his tally from 2019. He has improved his seasonal numbers every year since he moved permanently from his native Ireland in 2014 – to the extent that last year’s 137 was enough for third place on the jockeys’ list. As more than 50 of those winners came outside the arbitrary parameters of Britain’s official championship (approximately May to October), he was sixth there, a position he intends to improve this time around.
