Outside of Hugh Bowman, James McDonald and Blake Shinn, most would be surprised to discover that Tye Angland was the next best group 1 jockey in Australia this season.

Even Hall of Famers Damien Oliver and Glen Boss – as well as the international gun for hire Joao Moreira – are only Angland’s equal when it comes to major wins in Australia for the term.

Throw in Kerrin McEvoy and Ben Melham – the main beneficiary of the Dissident express – and it is pretty esteemed company Angland has kept himself in for his first full season back in Australia.
