The jockeys championship this season could be one of the most hotly contested event the sport has seen for some time with plenty of faces in with a shout.
Last year's winner Oisin Murphy is the rightful favourite at odds on 4/7 as he will pick up the most rides during the season and also have the chance to add to his ever growing roster of Group One winners.
Danny Tudhope (5/1) pushed Murphy all the way last season, taking over the north and picking up doubles and hat-tricks at the tracks that Murphy was not racing at.
However, it was not enough for him to win it but he was a valiant second and just behind Tudhope was the three time previous winner Silvestre De Sousa (6/1) that also had another good season but with his move to riding for King Power racing wasn't having as many winners as usual.
All the usual suspects along with previous winner Jim Crowley (25/1), William Buick (33/1) and all weather championship winner Ben Curtis (25/1) could all be in the frame this year in what looks an open race for the title but there is one name we have left out and that is our selection.
Tom Marquand is one of the most up and coming jockeys in the sport, riding his first two Group One winners in Australia during the off season and now looking to be the first choice for some of the top trainers in the sport.
He could have a huge breakthrough season after landing over 100 winners last year and now this term he could take that to knew heights proving his worth in the bigger contests.
He was 16/1 last month and now can be backed at a best price of 8/1 which looks huge value in this current field of jockeys.
