TWE RIDE OF THE WEEK is back for week number five, and with all the hype of top-banded racing at Royal Ascot over for another year, we can dig back deeper into the grass-routes level, which has seen jockey Tom Marquand defy any odds possible.
Winning on the 100/1 shot Miss Recycled at Brighton on Tuesday, Marquand was riding and winning on all sorts of prices on the Tuesday going forward for various connections.
From then until Saturday, he had 21 rides featuring five winners, which resulted in a sensational profit of more than £149 to a £1 level stake.
His week was rounded off with a brilliant ride on Who Dares Wins for Alan King in the British feature of the weekend - the Northumberland Plate at Newcastle, just denying the returning Dubawi Fifty for Karen McLintock.
Marquand was unfortunate to not score on the Queen's Shrewdness earlier at Bath midweek, but was successful on Otago in the same royal colours at Yarmouth on Friday.
On his final ride at the Somerset venue on Wednesday night, he was seen to work his magic on the Barry Brennan outsider Magic Shuffle.
Racing with an RPR of 76 for one Dundalk maiden effort over a mile last year, the three-year-old son of Ruler Of The World has been well below the level required on all six career starts.
He was switched from Ireland to Brennan's yard, and made his first appearance at Bath in Britain, where he appeared to be struggling to maintain the gallop early on.
Work it out for yourself - was it the horse's talent actually being released, was it a training miracle, or a Marquand masterclass in the saddle?
Whichever you decide, the 21-year-old certainly deserves plenty of credit for somehow getting this horse home in front, despite being well detached over five furlongs from the finish.
It's this effort that wins our award for week five. Check it out below:
A magnificent performance from both horse and jockey which provided plenty of party scenes for the owners and connections post-race, who could just not quite believe the result.
The 2015 champion apprentice was not taking it easy on Sunday however, and reflected on a memorable week in between three rides at Windsor in the afternoon.
(Credit: Racing Post) He said: "I was lucky with the 100-1 and 50-1 winners, but it's good to win on horses who aren't supposed to have a chance as it shows you're doing something right.
"The Northumberland Plate on its own would have topped the week, but I rode a winner for the Queen as well so it's been pretty good."
Congratulations to Tom Marquand; another young rising star of the game, who is well on his way to back-to-back centuries after already riding 49 winners for the season.
