LONDON - Richard Hughes has all but been confirmed as Britain's champion flat-race jockey for the third time in a row after it was confirmed closest rival Ryan Moore would not be riding in the country again this season. Moore led the way in the early part of the campaign but said his priority was big race wins around the world. Moore rode Hillstar to victory in the Canadian International on Sunday, barely a day after taking part in Champions Day at Ascot. He was down to ride two horses at Lingfield Tuesday, but Moore's agent, Tony Hind, told Britain's agency: "Ryan is just feeling under the weather today. "In all the time I've known him he's never missed a day through illness but he woke up this morning and rang me to say he didn't think he could do his rides justice as he is not feeling 100 percent. –AFP
