Edward Whitaker (

Jaydon Lee, the lucky groom who looks after Nicky Henderson superstars Shishkin and Constitution Hill, and Nicola Baker, the wife of retired Classic-winning jockey George, are among 12 riders taking part in a charity race in Newbury on Al Shaqab Lockinge Day Saturday .

The 1m2f competition, which Dani Jackson will call in an initiative to defend female commentators, takes place before the race at 12.35pm and supports the Injured Jockeys Fund.

Over 100 IJF beneficiaries and supporters will be in attendance and the race will be shown live on Racing TV with highlights later on ITV.

“It will be great fun and we hope these runners from all walks of life have the day of their lives,” said IJF Chief Executive Lisa Hancock.

“Most importantly, they have worked so hard to raise funds for us and we cannot thank everyone who supported this race enough, with a huge thank you to Newbury for hosting us so generously.”

Lee will partner Vaynor trained at Charlie Hills, while Baker is on Cliffs Of Capri.

Hannah Roche, PA of Paul Nicholls, also participates and rides Trainer Ditcheat’s Zoran.
