Three-time champion jockey Ryan Moore is the only jockey to have ridden in all 15 QIPCO British Champions Series this season. He is set to extend the sequence aboard Cliffs Of Moher, the favourite, in the Coral-Eclipse at Sandown on Saturday.

His form figures read 121412230412113, with his six winners being Churchill (QIPCO 2000 Guineas), Dartmouth (Betway Yorkshire Cup), Winter (Coronation Stakes), Highland Reel (Investec Coronation Cup and Prince of Wales’s Stakes) and Caravaggio (Commonwealth Cup).

He has ridden for Aidan O’Brien in 13 of the races but twice played supporting roles in races won by lesser fancied runners from the Ballydoyle stable. He was on Rhododendron (second) when Winter won the QIPCO 1000 Guineas and partnered Cliffs Of Moher (second) when Wings Of Eagles won the Investec Derby.

His two rides when O’Brien has not been represented have been Dartmouth and Limato, the latter finishing third in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes.
