    Does this list have to be English or is it open to any good British jockey?

    If the latter then Willie Carson was quite handy.

    Would you have Martin Dwyer (Liverpool) and Hayley Turner (Notts)?

    Dwyer is a good jockey in my book and Turner must be worth a mention for her feats?   Or are we getting too close to that ten mark and so anyone less than the calibre of Piggott is to be excluded?

    I think that someone ought to warn The Palace…

    Weren’t Josh Gifford, Richard Pitman & Terry Biddlecombe finished more than 30 years ago? And Pitman is the most famous loser in NH history!

    If we’re counting British, which I doubt we are, I’d suggest, no, insist upon Carl Llewellyn, and give a wee squeak for Peter Niven as well.

    Richard Hills??????????????????? :o

    Choc Thornton absolutely has to be in there.  Guesty too and I’d stick Brad in there as well, along with Jamie Osborne.

    3 Left. Pick 3 of:

    Choc Thornton<br>Carl Llewellyn (clue: he’s definitely one if you include the Welsh)<br>Richard Hills<br>Jamie Osbourne<br>Adrian Nicholls.<br>And perhaps the aforementioned R C Guest, who rode the winner of the toughest National I’ve seen in my 20 years.

    All are (or were) top jockeys as your criterion specified. I’d suggest a leopard-skin thong.

    Fine. your opinion and I respect it. Pick 3 of the other 4. No doubt they’re all top class.

    Adrian Nicholls top class lol, of course in my opinion i think he’s nothing more than a average jock who rides alot of his fathers horses in handicap sprints. If you’ll notice he doesnt get many rides in group races and many rides outside dandys stable.

    If Philip Robinson is English, and I can’t be bothered researching his nationality :cool: , then he’d be in my top 10.<br>
