YOU can read all about Brian Hughes becoming British champion jump jockey for the first time on page 12 but the south Armagh native was not the only north of Ireland-born rider to feature in the truncated season as two Downpatrick natives also rode their share of winners.

Danny McMenamin, who is attached to the Nicky Richards yard, ended the campaign with 28 wins to his credit from 221 rides (13%) while, at time of writing, London-based property investor David Maxwell has an impressive strike rate of 33% having won 18 of the 55 races he contested.
