We have looked at the performance of the two leading jockeys at the Cheltenham Festival in a number of grade one races.
Between them Barry Geraghty and Ruby Walsh have ridden the winner in 6 of the last ten renewals and been placed on a further 3 occasions.
The jockey with the best record in the race is Barry Geraghty. He won his first race at the Festival on Moscow Flyer in this race back in 2002 and has won on three occasions since 2009. His form figures since 2009 are 1521163and backing his mount in each renewal during that spell would have resulted in a level stakes profit of £5.26.
For a long spell in his carreer the Arkle hadot been Ruby Walsh's best race at the meeting but since Champagne Fever's last gasp defeat he has excelled in the race winning in 2015, 2016 and 2018.
