With the Cheltenham Roar incoming and the fun and fanfare that goes with The Festival (and the booze) we decided we would look at the top dogs in the running and see who deserves to be considered the Top Jockey at Cheltenham, which might help out with Paddy Power Gold Cup Bets. Whilst many would have you believe that jockeys are only concerned with putting in good rides for their trainers and often aren’t interested in individual acclaim you would be mistaken.

The life of a jockey can sometimes be a solitary existence, with many flitting around different trainers and countries to make ends meet. The jockeys we’ve concentrated on though are a different breed, they are the best of the best and we’ve broken down in detail the stats the matter when it comes to making your choice for Cheltenham 2018’s Top Jockey.
