Horse insurance: Richard Hughes bids for title with 14 rides in one day
Richard Hughes is attempting to cut Paul Hanagan's lead in the jockey's title race by riding in 14 races today, horse insurance customers have been told.
Irishman Hughes is currently eight wins behind his rival with 11 days remaining in the championship, this despite being suspended for seven days last week.
He will ride six horses at Nottingham in the afternoon, before climbing aboard a further eight at Kempton this evening.
Hanagan will attempt to extend his lead further by riding in seven animals at Musselburgh in Scotland today, where he has a good history of success.
BBC Sport said: "Hanagan is bidding to become only the second jockey from the north of England, following Kevin Darley in 2000, to win the title in the last 100 years."
Earlier this week, champion jockey Tony McCoy claimed his 100th win of the season with two victories at Ludlow, pulling clear of Richard Johnson in the jumps campaign.
