Irish-based jockey Philip Enright rode his first winner under rules as an 18-year-old boy back in 2005 at Downpatrick. Since then he’s been trusted by many different trainers and owners to ride horses for them and built up a reputation that has always given him a book of rides.

He’s had some big race success too and perhaps is best known for the special feat of landing back-to-back Thyestes Chase’s for Tom O’Leary, winning the race with Priests Leap in 2008 and 2009. That horse would go on to run in the Grand National twice, and Enright would ride him on both occasions.

He was the first Grand National ride for Enright, which came in 2009. They finished 14th that year, completing the course on their first attempt, and a year later when they returned to Aintree again, they would finish in exactly the same position, again getting around without any issues.

While he is perhaps not one of the bigger names from Ireland, tied to a big yard, the fact that Enright is trusted by many trainers and owners in the country always means he could have a ride at Aintree, given how many Irish runners compete in the race.
