Jockeys Delegation coming to Parliament

Riding the great horse Lowlander, when I was bit thinner!
Looking forward to welcoming a group of jockeys to parliament on Tuesday for an hour long meeting. As the only qualified jockey, who can also ride against professionals, of the MPs in the House of Commons, I have great sympathy with their upset at the way the new whip rules have been brought in.
Will also be interested to get their views and opinions on how the great sport of horse racing is being run.
I am back in training, and running regularly, and hope to be fit enough and light enough to be racing on the odd weekend next year.
