THIS should be a spectacle to get the audience on its feet as champion jockeys A.P. McCoy and Richard Hughes are set for a showdown as they go head-to-head in a show jumping challenge at Olympia, The London International Horse Show on Friday, December 19th.

They lead the line-up for the Markel Champions Challenge between jump jockeys and flat jockeys in aid of the Injured Jockeys Fund in Britain. In the jump jockey squad will be John Francome, Sam Twiston-Davies and Sam Thomas, while representing flat jockeys with Hughes will be Hayley Turner, Jim Crowley and Adam Kirby.
