Ben Crawford has been one of the leading riders on the northern circuit for a number of seasons, and is from a successful racing family, with brothers Steven and Stuart, well-known for their abilities as an amateur jockey and trainer respectively. Crawford went on to have his first winner aboard Segnor Du Charmil in 2009 and 15-winners during the 2011/12 season saw him share the northern title with Derek O'Connor, a tally he would better by two-winners 12-months later. During the 2018 campaign, he rode no fewer than two horses to victory that sold for over £200,000 - namely Malone Road (£325,000) and The Very Man (£210,000).
