Although Robert Waley-Cohen rode in point-to-points and hunter chases, he described himself as an incredibly bad amateur - "Wrong shape, wrong weight, not fit enough - basically, just thoroughly incompetent". Born on November 10, 1948 and the founder of healthcare giant Alliance Medical, Robert Waley-Cohen is no stranger to big-race success at Cheltenham as his Katarino won the 1999 JCB Triumph Hurdle, Rustle took what is now the Ladbrokes World Hurdle in 1989, Liberthine collected the 2005 Byrne Group Plate and Rajdhani Express won the Rewards4Racing Novices' Handicap Chase this season. He trains a few horses himself under permit and sent out Katarino to win the John Smith's Fox Hunters' Chase at Aintree in 2005 and 2006 again ridden by Sam. A member of the Jockey Club since 1983, where he has been a steward, he has a small team of around 10 broodmares at Upton Viva Stud in Warwickshire and was a director of Cheltenham Racecourse before becoming chairman when Lord Vestey stepped down at the end of the 2010/11 season.
