Jim Crowley: To be crowned champion on Saturday.

Before the start of racing on Wednesday, Crowley sits 16 winners clear of second-placed Silvestre De Sousa, with just four days remaining of the Championship to go.

Skelton said: "I was delighted to be asked to make the Stobart Champion Jockey presentation. Jim Crowley will be a thoroughly deserving champion, he's worked tremendously hard and has been in incredible form, particularly in the last few months.

"I keep a close eye on the racing world with both my sons heavily involved in jumps racing. Ascot is such a wonderful stage and I always enjoy going racing but this year it will be even more special to catch up with some of the other Rio competitors on Champions Day."

Crowley has been in imperious form this year, riding 144 winners to date since the Championship kicked off on April 30, including breaking the record for the most winners in a month when bagging 46 during September
