Jack Quinlan – Festival First Timers

 Jack Quinlan, the jockey based in Newmarket. The hub of racing. To the untrained brain it would be fair to assume it was just another 8st, 5ft flat rider. However, Quinlan is in the privileged position of having first pick on the towns select squadron of jumpers and in particular, the man in the [...]

Cheltenham Contenders – Paul Nicholls

Paul Nicholls is a man who has experienced both unbelievable highs and despairing lows at the Cheltenham Festival. Having saddled over 40 Festival winners and 4 Gold Cups and having overseen a halcyon period for the sport where the likes of Kauto Star, Big Bucks and Master Minded were a standing dish in the [...]

Ciaran Gethings has had an interesting career in the saddle in his short and now flourishing career. A win on his first ride for long-time employer Philip Hobbs, landing the Swinton Hurdle aboard War sound, identified the Wicklow man as one to watch. However, the next time the 23-year-old was to hit the headlines [...]
