I rate them dealer but only around average,plenty of history will show you why it is a valid opinion? Good jockeys are made by bad or average horses,good horses can make an average jockey look good?

Stefano Cherchi is a brilliant horseman as is Marco Ghiani as is Antonio Fresu..........which one of the three will be the next Tom Marquand?

All three are massively superior already,not a case of what you know but WHO you know and even then shortlived if you cannot deliver!!!!WinkWink

Btw Prince KA already on the case of Sardo talent as is Sheikh Mo,wonder why that is,maybe ask Andrea?Wink

Anyone in any doubt anymore? If so just have another look at the last race yesterday at Leicester and Marco's ride on the Heather Main donkey earlier........a neck short of a 5 figure payout and all down to two extremely talented lads with big futures should they choose?

How do you judge the very best? Is it just numbers, surely not? Look at some of the journeyman champion jocks in recent years.

I would have thought to be declaring someone one of the very best they have to be consistently dining out at the top table and winning with some regularity. Maybe he will but Marquand isn't doing that at the moment.

He had 15 rides at Royal Ascot, falling over the line on an 1/1 shot in the worst race of the meeting.

If he was viewed as one of the very best he wouldn't have been jocked off Threat last season and more recently English King in this season's Derby.

All jockeys are in somebody's pocket ,  there are good rides , bad rides , doesn't take much to get the best horse in the race home first ! None of it is rocket science !  All of them overrated !  it`s a good job no one has done a reality show taking joe`s off the street and turning them into jockey`s , it would soon show , lol

They have actually, a woman many moons ago, went to David Nicholson and won her race by a wide margin.

you can have the best jockey on the worst horse but he won't win very many ... i like marquand and think he'll get to the top but you still need the horse under you ... even a good jock can't make a bad horse run faster

he's 36, tom is 22

you'll likely find by the time tom is 36 he's a far lesser jockey than he is now but most of the influential people in horse racing usually go for clapped out old bangers with lofty reputations, they always have done

Wonderful jockey, but he needs to watch who he rides for, because if he rides horses like poetic force to get beat far too often, by displaying a lack of willingness on a friendless drifter, The rich kids will notice and he wont get the decent rides
