There is his Top 10 jockeys list too though Reynard, to be fair.

Though I have a suspicion also some fishing going on...Mischief

I thought maybe fishing until I saw Lee included.

Some really poor jockeys in this list im afraid sorry.

Anyone that isnt happy, whats wrong with it?
Report Ramruma July 23, 2021 7:26 AM BST
Comparing OP's list with the Whitley figures, Whitley has four of those listed as above average, and some more not rated at all, presumably because they've not ridden enough.
Report G Hall July 23, 2021 9:02 AM BST
Racist topic in my opinion everyone in the list is white and British or Irish
Report Ramruma July 23, 2021 9:56 AM BST
Racist to assume number 3, "All the Doyles", are White. There could be hundreds of them in China or Africa.

I will put this in the most polite way possible.

She isnt the strongest in a finish.

In my view, the most important attributes of a jockey are pace judgement, tactics, balance and timing in a finish. It is the horse that needs the strength although a lazy horse does need a strong jockey.

Cosgrave is anything but a "Bonus" in the saddle. The money was down there but as is generally the case, it went astray! Good old Pat, lay all day.

Swad needs to watch Hollie winning on Glen Shiel in the Group 1 at Ascot last October, if there was a stronger ride on the Flat last year I must have missed it.
Report GEORGE.B July 26, 2021 11:56 PM BST
I'm not saying these are the "worst" , if only because the ratings may say otherwise, and it's a subjective list, but let's just say they don't exactly fill me with confidence! In no particular order:

Tony Hamilton
Tom Eaves
Liam Keniry
Josephine Gordon
Tom Queally
James Sullivan
Shane Kelly

If you listen to the 'pocket talkers' then there isn't a decent jockey in the country.
Report steerforth July 27, 2021 8:02 AM BST
Tiger has a point, I reckon everyone has jockeys/trainers who as a rule, either beat them when laid or are beaten when backed.
It doesnt follow that they are necessarily bad. But it's conspicuous how some names keep coming up. But once again, how can anybody look at Luke Morris and say his style is not at the very least unbalancing horses? Surely that's objective.

He can ride, but will he?

steerforth, I agree, but Sir Mark Prescott seems to disagree, Morris has a 30% strike rate for him on his 3 year olds in Handicaps, strangely though, if you layed every other one he ever rides for Sir Mark you would be very happy.

Smashing ride by Mulrennan there in the Bev 1.30.  Kept finding more as the challenges came.  Can't ask for more than that.
Report ItsMeSwaddle July 27, 2021 1:41 PM BST
Kelly, Mulrennan both very good jockeys but sadly only when they want to be, if it was on pure ability these 2 would of made the top10 list.

Morris cant be on the worst 10 list just purely due to his good John Wayne impression close home, windmill whipping motion, yeeeeha
