The Irishman enjoyed a breakthrough triumph last year when guiding the Robert CowellKing’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot in 2015.
It was his first success in a QIPCO British Champions Series races and, for good measure, he won the Prix de l’Abbaye on the same horse later in the season. This time the margin of victory was a short neck.
In March 2014, in a modest race on the all-weather at Lingfield, he was catapulted head first into the ground, at almost 40mph, when Red Art, his ill-fated mount, clipped the heels of a rival in the closing stages.
In 2016 he enjoyed two Series wins on Sheikhzayedroad in the staying category.
