Ryan Moore is the odds-against favourite for the Racing UK Qatar Goodwood Festival top jockey award.
Moore, who has 41 wins at the five-day festival, was top jockey for the fourth time 12 months ago, and is 11-10 with Bet365 to top the standings.
The leading jockey over the keew, which starts on Tuesday, will receive a subscription to Racing UK, a £1,000 donation to the charity of his/her choice, and a deluxe Goodwood hamper.
Moore will be bidding for his third award in a row – having partnered five winners last year, while Sir Gordon Richards hold the record for number of winners with ten, a mark he achieved in 1947 and 1949.
