David O'Meara Calls On The North To Support Tudhope

David O'Meara has pushed his fellow northern trainers to support Danny Tudhope's title bid, after his stable jockey continued his magnificent season in 2019 with an across-the-card five-timer on Saturday.

The Scottish jockey has been enjoying his best season to-date, with his efforts now resulting in him taking up ownership of the favourite for the Jockeys Championship, which concludes on October 19.

Tudhope extended his lead to nine with a treble at Ripon on Saturday, before riding out a double at Doncaster later in the day.

Going into Monday's racing - of which he will be situated at Beverley in the evening for five rides, he has recorded 78 winners from 308 mounts in total.

His closest pursuer - Oisin Murphy comes next on 69 winners, leaving current champion Silvestre De Sousa with some work to do who is sitting fifteen further back on 54.

Tudhope is now as short as 2/1 on for a first success in the leaderboard, with Oisin Murphy next best at 5/4.

The Brazilian jockey [De Sousa] can be found as bid as 33/1 to bridge the growing deficit and win a fourth career Jockeys Championship.

A sufficient gap to close, particularly as in the last week, his rival Tudhope has registered fourteen trips to the winners enclosure - thirteen of them in Yorkshire.

His retained boss David O'Meara is now urging everyone to give the thirty-three-year-old every chance of success, with the Summer Yorkshire festival continuing its roll call into the new week.

(Credit: Racing Post) He said: "Danny is a very talented jockey and it would be nice if the north got behind him to give him a good crack at the title.

"He's having a good run and things are going well. I know we're only in July but if he can get through August still in front, he'll have a great chance.

"If he can get through August still in front, he'll have a great chance"

Tudhope's most recent eight triumphs have come for eight different trainers.

Smashing them in for regular's O'Meara and his retained owners Clipper Logistics, he has been able to call on the support of boss William Haggas elsewhere.

He has ridden 18 winners from 35 rides this year for the Newmarket-based trainer.

O'Meara continued: "He has some good spares when horses from the south come north and his agent Laura [Way] is doing a very good job.

"We're running as many horses as we can in races that they can win and hopefully he'll ride the vast majority of them."

The Scotsman - who had only ridden two winners at the royal meeting before 2019, had a week to saviour with four victors at Royal Ascot last month.

Striking on the likes of Lord Glitters and Addeyyb - both on the opening day, Tudhope is aiming to become to the first northern-based Flat champion jockey since Paul Hanagan claimed his second championship eight years ago in 2011.
