Riding a fancied one for Varian in the 4.10 at Lingers. Two rides this year,two last. No claim so I'm assuming he's a furriner. Name suggests American but I know more about US jockeys than GB ones these days and I've never come across him.
Anybody know ?

Jefferson Smith may be an unfamiliar name to many, but the jockey landed his 100th career winner and illustrated his riding credentials when guiding the Roger Varian-trained Sound Angela to a comfortable two-length success in the mile novice stakes.

The 26-year-old French native has relocated to Varian's stable having previously ridden professionally in France and as a work-rider for Charlie Appleby in Dubai.

“Today is my 100th winner,” Smith told Sky Sports Racing.

The 8-11 shot gave favourite backers a scare when she fell out the stalls, but her rider kept his composure.

He added: “The start was not good, she was a little bit funny, but it was not a problem, I was in no rush. I know the filly, she has a good finish and I listened to the orders of Roger [Varian] and was patient.”

Smith is building a fruitful partnership with Sound Angela as she gave him his first victory in Britain and for his new boss at Kempton last month.

He said: “It’s my first year in the UK, I need to work more and improve all the time.”
