It feels brilliant to have reached the landmark of 3,000 jumps winners in Great Britain with the success of Kupatana at Cheltenham today.
I’ve had the total in my sights all season and the expectation of getting there has meant quite a lot of pressure.
It has been an amazing journey since Paul Barber gave me the chance to start training at Ditcheat in October, 1991 and to achieve it at Cheltenham is perfect.
Reaching 3000 winners is quite a landmark and something to be proud of and I could not have managed it without everyone at home who are part of Team Ditcheat. They all work hard with enthusiasm and do their bit.Now I can take my foot off the pedal and enjoy it before looking ahead to the next challenge of 4000 winners.All we have to do is keep going and finding the nice horses for the future. If we do that I’d say 4000 is quite achievable.
I am just as driven as I have always been. It’s winners that count.
