Harry Bentley is one of flat racing's most exciting young talents.
The 20-year-old from Storrington, West Sussex, became the first jockey to operate under the ISM banner in February 2013 shortly after completing the biggest double of his already impressive career - including a first Group 1 winner.
Bentley, who has been in the saddle since the age of four, partnered Naseem to victory in the HH The President's Cup, the most valuable purebred Arabian contest in the United Arab Emirates.
And he completed a memorable double for Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan and trainer Majed Al Jahouri bringing home Thakif in the Group 3 Al Ruwais at the same Abu Dhabi meeting.
Bentley was delighted to join the stable and hopes the association will help improve his and the sport's profile.
Although Bentley is guided and managed by his father, John, the pair thought it might be a good idea to approach somebody involved in other sports and with broader experience of promoting high profile sporting figures.
Bentley is currently riding for Ali Rashid Al Raihe's Grandstand stables in the Dubai international carnival from January to March and will join the growing racing and bloodstock empire of Sheikh Fahad Al Thani when he returns to England in the spring - first rider for the fledgling yard of Olly Stevens, now installed in a 50-box stable just outside London.
He was about to go to college when he was 16 to take his A levels, but Horsham trainer Gary Moore encouraged him to get an apprentice licence and offered a few rides. "It was a big risk to drop out of education, but I took it and so far so good," said Bentley.
