FOR RYAN Moore last year will be a huge one to follow – but he looks a special case. In what was only his third winning season he logged 132 victories, almost pounds 1.5 million in prize money and was fifth behind Frankie Dettori and Kieren Fallon in the flat jockeys’ championship.

Ryan won races but, more important, he won respect. There is an old head on those 21-year-old shoulders that knows there is still a long way to climb.

He had his first rides and first winners for Dunlop, Marcus Tregonning and Michael Stoute. He has already clocked in successfully for the winter season in Dubai. In Britain next season he will be on everyone’s list.
