RYAN MOORE

Even his father has described as a “miserable bastard” but this monosyllabic and gifted jockey takes it all in stride.

There’s a touch of a Dickensian personality to Moore- like an urchin in Fagin’s gang- and which is certainly different to the very flamboyant and affable appeal of Frankie Dettori, but this “outsider” image makes him bloody interesting. It’s the rise of the anti-hero.

Yes, his taciturn taciturn nature might come across as rude, it could be shyness or it just could be supreme confidence and a no bullshit approach to racing which has won him a legion of fans.

Still in the works, but a breakfast hosted by us where punters across the world who have been mauled on the punt can have a good old whinge over Skype.

THE BERRY TWINS

These identical twins is a merchandising dream and could be the double act that brings about real mainstream sponsorship to racing and endorsements for jockeys a la David Beckham and many other sportsmen.

Anyone who thinks all these racing shows with talking heads and other bibs and bobs are the Muzak of this sport and a bloody waste of time have not seen the simulcasts hosted by JoJo and Wally.

JoJo plays the straight person to Wally’s scholarly approach to his comments.

There’s almost an Eliza Doolittle and Professor Higgins ‘feel’ to their partnership with Wally enunciating that the rain in Spain always falls on the plains and recalling all the rumors he’s heard from his satay sources while JoJo sits behind her tiny Toys R Us table like Gulliver, eyes glazed and wondering if she’s Alice and having tea with the Mad Hatter.
