Chris Hughes has joined the Coral Champions Club as an official Club Ambassador and every week we will be giving him £100 of charity bets to place with all the winnings going to the Injured Jockeys Fund.
Here is Chris’s first video blog where he tells us which horses will carry the bets for the charity this weekend.
Chris grew up in the Cotswolds next to Jonjo O’Neill’s Jackdaws Castle training centre. He went to school with Sam and Willie Twiston-Davies and the Shoemark brothers, and is great friends with Richie Mclernon and Aidan Coleman. He is a passionate fan of horse racing and in particular jump racing.
He is also a talented rider and last week went down to Colin Tizzard’s yard where he schooled the Champions Club horse Battle of Ideas over hurdles upsides Harry Cobden.
