Title-chasing Tudhope: I'm reaching my peak and definitely have the ammo

Danny Tudhope: enjoyed his best year in terms of winners and prize-money
1 of 1

Buoyed by his best year in the saddle, Danny Tudhope is setting his sights on mounting a challenge for the Stobart Flat jockeys' championship.

With 122 winners and £1,612,101 total prize-money collected in 2017, Tudhope reached new heights in a memorable campaign which brought two notable firsts.

Out Do's victory in the Wokingham in June gave Tudhope, who grew up in Ayrshire, a breakthrough success at Royal Ascot, and he was also crowned Cock O' The North for the most wins in the season by a northern jockey.

Tudhope, who claimed the first of his four top-flight victories when G Force won the Sprint Cup at Haydock in 2014, finished fourth in the title race last year, behind Silvestre de Sousa, Jim Crowley and Ryan Moore.

"It's very difficult for a northern jockey to become champion and it was a good achievement to finish fourth, but I always think I can achieve more and don't think people have seen the best of me yet," he said on Wednesday.

"I'm only 32 and am probably peaking now. I'm getting good support and definitely have the ammunition. I think Silvestre will be hard to beat – his hunger and desire is in a different league and he has no weight issues – but I want to do a bit more and you never know."

Top Newmarket connections

Tudhope, who can be backed at 33-1 in the title betting in a market headed by De Sousa, is stable jockey to top trainer David O'Meara, based at Upper Helmsley in York, and principal rider for owner Steve Parkin, who runs his horses in the name of his company Clipper Logistics.

"I have a good stable behind me and have also received a lot of support from outside, riding for William Haggas, Sir Michael Stoute and other Newmarket trainers," he said. "I had more rides last year than ever before and that obviously helped me get more winners."

A vintage year for Tudhope started with a bang in the traditional Flat season curtain-raiser as he produced a contender for ride of the season on Bravery in the Lincoln.

A £10 bet placed on every Tudhope ride during the jockeys’ championship would have ended up returning a £876 profit.

Regarding the pinnacle of the year, Tudhope said: "Suedois in the Shadwell Turf Mile at Keeneland was the high point. To ride any winner in America is a big achievement. David and I won the Arlington Million with Mondialiste, who has now retired, and it's great to have another horse to follow in his footsteps."

Following his victory at Royal Ascot, Tudhope returned to the course on British Champions Day to land the £250,000 Balmoral Handicap on Lord Glitters.

The grey, bought for €270,000 by owners Geoff and Sandra Turnbull as a replacement for Mondialiste, is the horse Tudhope is most excited about for the year ahead.

"He was very impressive in the manner of his victory on Champions Day and looks a Group horse in the making," he said.

"Another I'm looking forward to is a two-year-old from last year called Consequences. Despite winning twice he was never really right and we've not seen the best of him yet."
