    1. When were you first on a horse?

      I've been riding horses all my life, I was around 3 when I first sat on a horse.

    2. How did you end up becoming a jockey?

      I always wanted to be a jockey so I just worked hard to become one.

    3. What has been your greatest sporting achievement to date?

      Well it’s got to be winning the Irish Gold Cup in Leopardstown on Carlingford Lough in 2016.

      Mark was in last place throughout this memorable race. But then after the second last fence he made a dramatic move up the inside to win! See the clip below and skip to 6 mins to see Mark make his move.

    4. Who is your hero?

      AP McCoy is my hero, he was the greatest jump jockey ever and I don't think we'll ever see another like him.

    5. What was your first car?

      A Volkswagen Polo.

    6. How are you enjoying driving your Mercedes-Benz GLE?

      I'm really enjoying driving the Mercedes-Benz GLE, it is a beautiful car and my drive to the races is a much more comfortable one now!

    7. And finally Mark if we were going to have a flutter on the racing at Cheltenham, what would be your tips?

      One of the horses I hope to be riding at Cheltenham is Cantlow, I won on him over the course and distance last year and I hope we can win again.
