Speaking of notching up 200 wins in France, Rispoli said: “It’s hard because I need the trainers to trust me.

"What’s more, I only started in France in March this year, even though I did race from April to October 2012, so I haven’t been riding for a whole year.”

Although the Italian jockey says he has just one goal - "to make progress in terms of wins” - he will not yet be able to hit the same heights as in Italy - he won 245 events in 2009, setting his country’s record for number of wins in a season.
