Walsh Favourite To Land Bumper Job With JP McManus

He is already his number one rider in Ireland.

Mark Walsh is the favourite to land the leading job with JP McManus following the retirement of Barry Geraghty.

The 43 time Cheltenham Festival winning jockey called time on his career on Saturday and the race is on to be named his replacement. 

Another in the running is Aidan Coleman who has deputised for both AP McCoy and Geraghty on the Limerick man's runners in the UK.

Also being mooted is Jonjo O'Neill Jr son of one of JP's  main training representatives along with current champion jockey in the UK Brian Hughes.
