Terry Biddlecombe dies at 72
Three-time champion jump jockey Terry Biddlecombe has died after a lengthy illness at the age of 72.
A familiar figure in National Hunt racing for over 50 years, Biddlecombe was a leading light of the 'cavalier' generation of jump jockeys and among his big-race victories was the Cheltenham Gold Cup success of Woodland Venture in 1967.
In later years he was one half of racing's much-loved 'odd couple' as the husband of trainer Henrietta Knight, and he shared in the success of the legendary Best Mate, winner of the Gold Cup on three occasions.
