Top 5 Flat Jockeys

It’s less than a week until arguably the biggest and most glamorous event in flat racing, Royal Ascot. That being said we thought we would have a little look at who, in our opinion, are the Top 5 Flat Jockeys at the moment. We understand this is a controversial topic and everyone has their own opinions, but based on current form and overall performances in the last couple of years we have picked our top 5. Please feel free to comment your top 5 in the comment section below


The current Flat Jockey Champion and No1 rider for owner Sheikh Hamdan al-Maktoum as of November 2016, Jim Crowley makes our top 5 because of his form over the last couple of years. He won the Championship last year with 148 winners, 46 of them came during a record-breaking September for which he set a record of most wins in one month. He is also going through a real purple patch of form riding 8 winners in the last week with 4 of those coming in one day on the 9th June, 3 of those coming at Goodwood which he says is his favourite race track. No doubt he will be looking to retain his title however that could be a tough ask as our next top 5 pick looks almost destined to take the title. By the way, Jim has recently joined twitter so if you want to keep upto date with what he’s doing give him a follow (@JimCrowley1978).
