    Philip Robinson – good call ToneLoc.<br>has anyone mentioned Kevin Darley ?<br>Joe Mercer was still riding winners within the last 30 years so ought to be counted in too. Was  Stan Mellor ?<br>George Duffield ?<br>Jason Weaver ?<br>Where were Bob (B R) Davies and Alan Munro (is he a jock?) from?<br>

    Just to say that if you have to include Peter Scudamore as one of the top ten English jockeys in the past 30 years, then you really are scraping the barrel.

    Precisely – anyone mentioning Adrian Nicholls or Richard Hills must be taking the p*ss.

    Alan Munro is Australian I believe.

    Also, what part of "Top English jockeys" do people not understand?????  That includes Carl Llewellyn for Christ’s sake – Welsh is not English!!  It’s not hard…..

    Well, if we’re going to be pedantic then as long as there are are ten or more English jockeys then there are at least "Top Ten English Jockeys" no matter who they are and no matter how good they are.

    Top is a relative term and not an absolute term such as great.

    Get yer bail money ready.

    This thread proves that the top notch jocks are mostly Irish and most of them have been riding in pony races since they were no age and there is also alot of family heritage and history links.
