Ryan Moore is 4-6 favourite with Betfair to take the Qatar Goodwood Festival Top Jockey award, sponsored by Racing UK.

The leading jockey over the five-day festival, which starts on Tuesday, will receive a subscription to Racing UK, a £1,000 donation to the charity of his/her choice, and a deluxe Goodwood hamper.

Moore will be gunning for his third title and his first since 2009 in a competition which had been dominated by the now-retired Richard Hughes, who had won four of the last six awards.

As leading rider from last year’s meeting, Frankie Dettori will wear the Racing UK blue and white armband for the opening race on Tuesday, the Matchbook Betting Exchange Stakes.

Seb Vance, Racing UK’s Director of PR & Communications, said: “Racing UK is delighted to sponsor the Qatar Goodwood Festival Top Jockey award for the seventh year running.

“We’re always keen to get involved with the sport’s real ambassadors and support the jockeys through our sponsorships and continued close association with the Professional Jockeys’ Association.”
