Grants riding has for a very long time been excellent, including having 4 winners on a few occasions plus a few group wins including the QP and Derby.

I watch thousands of repays every year and some of his riding is the best i have ever seen, he just has that ability to get horses to the line. He also showed glimpses of his brilliance in Hong Kong as well.

I study form and follow horses and not jockeys but i must say that this guy is making an extra difference to the horses he rides.

Bob why is it that I suspect you, Dave and others firmly believe that Marcus (Superman) can get a horse to run faster than Domeyer, Bling, Kennedy and Muzi?

The chilli paste he uses to smear up the horse's behind is stronger than the others you mention:P

Guessing has never been widely acclaimed as a good gambling strategy

Because of the ride he had on Jay Peg and ever since then these deluded old men think that he is the best rider that has ever sat on a race horse.

CNC - can you imagine if GvN was the retained jockey for Richmond, how many more winners they would have.

Agree 100% , unlike a certain overrated british flat jockey who winners are usually with armchairs at Lingfield Park :whistle:

Craig - for someone that’s not interested he sure rides plenty winners for lots of different yards.

At least this weekend others will get a chance.

I am not a Marcus fan at all ... but with a career WIN strike rate of 25% it is hardly possible to dismiss his prowess. That said it is interesting to note that 69.8% of his rides started 5/1 or shorter, with a win strike rate of 59% on ODDS ON shots...
Consider that a lot of those could be labelled 'too short because of who is on top' ... that is still an excellent strike rate. I cannot think of anyone locally with a better strike rate (having had more than 2000 rides)

GVN is a very naturally talented rider but just don't ask him anything when he is not sitting on a horse

Delpech still my highest rated jock
