I was a professional jockey and rode in two Grand Nationals.
I also had several rides at the Cheltenham Festival including Gambling Prince on whom he won the Greenham Hurdle at Newbury.
My wife Jane and I work as a team and have been training since 2006.
Since then we have had considerable success on the flat and over jumps.
In 2011 Phoenix Flight was placed in the Ascot Stakes at the Royal Meeting and he also won on the flat and over hurdles.
Prophete de Guye won a £20,000 handicap chase at Ascot and Ghostwing showed the yards' versatility by smashing the 5f track record at Southwell.
Another notable success was Omix d'Or's victory in the Perth National.
I have had a great start to the 2012/13 jumps season with 7 winners already at a strike rate of 20%.
Two other notable successes have been Caldercruix and Trackmate who were both purchased cheaply at the sales by us for there respective owners David Mantle and Barry Preece.
We work with his owners to carefully plan each horses campaign and his owners are always kept fully informed.
