Ireland manager Kevin Blake said: “I’m really happy. Six out of seven were selections that I thought I could get and exceptions in which I was very happy. It’s a nice mix of British-based and Irish-based jockeys, with some of Ireland’s top boys keen to support the idea. Gavin Ryan and Dylan Brown McMonagel climbed the racing league last year and, like Billy Lee, were eager to get involved again. It would be great to be able to beat them with the British-based jockeys led by Tom Markund, who was clearly number one. “

Rupert Bell, team manager at The East, said: “It was fun to do. I’m glad I got most of what I wanted. I started with Jack Mitchell because he was the star of the show last year, helping Team TalkSport win. We have Haley Turner, Grace McIntyre and Luke Morris – some very reliable jockeys who will make our team proud.

Scotland team manager Linda Perrat said: “I am delighted with my selection. One or two of them were away early, so we gave our best. I think we have some really nice jockeys and some nice trainers with beautiful horses. Hopefully, they will be satisfied with the selection! ”
