Ruby Walsh became only the third National Hunt jockey to ride 2000 winners in the UK & Ireland when Balding Banker won the Betfred Goals Galore Maiden Hurdle at Uttoxeter on Saturday 31st March 2012. We expected that the achievement would have got more coverage in the main stream press but didnt expect that it would be overlooked by the man himself ! See our twitter exchange below !

We had asked Ruby how many winners he had in France so we could count back to his 2000th career win. Counting backwards we now calculate that Ruby Walsh's 2000th career win came on Quevega on the opening day of the 2012 Cheltenham Festival.

Graham Lee announced his intention to switch to the flat and his 1000th winner under rules was flagged up in January. Our stats have him on 998 in the UK & Ireland under National Hunt rules so we hope there might be another few bumper wins in him !

Tony McCoy and Richard Johnson remain the top two by some distance in overall wins and occupy their usual positions in the race for the UK 2011-12 jockey's title. Jason Maguire though has been banging in the winners and now trails Richard Johnson by just six this season.

Davy Russell continues to stay in front in the race for the Irish title and has a lead of fifteen over Ruby Walsh going into the last month of the season. Russell must be hopeful of securing an elusive first champion jockey title.
