Crowned champion conditional jockey for the 2022/23 National Hunt season, Luca Morgan took to social media platform X for a statement:

"A sad day but today my dream since I was very small and my career since I was 16 comes to an end. It's been an amazing journey that I've loved every second of. I've had a war with the scales since I started and it's time to do what's right for me and my body.

"What Ben Pauling, Sophie and the brilliant owners and team have done for me has been unbelievable and I am indebted to them completely. I lived my dream and I will always be proud of what I achieved."

Morgan's final ride will be Harry's Hope for Ben Pauling at Ludlow on Thursday.
