Who Will Win the National Hunt Jockeys Championship?

You only have to take a look at the list of winning jockeys those year in National Hunt races over in the UK to realise that there is one jockey that has been winning plenty of races, and therefore has a very good and outstanding chance of being crowned the champion National Hunt jockey this year.

That jockey is Richard Johnson, and if you are blissfully unaware then you do need to be aware of the fact that many bookies and betting site are going to be offering you a  betting market and set of odds on that title race, and as such you can place a back on Johnson if you so desire.

However, such are his chance of winning the champion National Hunt jockey title race this season you are not going to find some massive odds being offered to you, in fact the best odds currently up for grabs at betting site like Coral on him are just 2/7.

Moving onto another jockey that has a much greater chance of winning that title that most others, bar of course the jockey named up above is Brian Hughes and the odd you can currently bag on him are certainly appealing and those odds are 5/2.

Big Jump in Odds on the Next Two Jockeys

You can rest assured that it will be one of the two jockeys that are named up above that have the very best chance of being named at the National Hunt Champions Jockey this year, but some of you out there may rate the chances of another jockey of course.

Therefore let me now move onto giving you an insight into the next two jockeys in the betting and let you know just how high their current respective win odds are, and those jockeys for reference are Harry Skelton who is a 16/1 shot followed by Harry Cobden who can be backed right now at tempting odds of 33/1.

Massive Odds Available on All Other Jockeys

I wouldn’t get too carried away though if you want to back any of the other jockeys that have albeit a tiny chance still of beating the jockeys names above and ending up being crowned the champion National Hunt jockey this year as there are some huge risks associated with backing any of the other jockeys and the outsiders to do so.

However, just so you are aware of just which jockeys can be backed right now they include Sam Twiston-Davies who is a 40/1 chance and the is then followed in the betting by Aidan Coleman whose odds right now are high at 66/1.

If you are convinced that jockeys such as either Nico De Boinville or Sean Bowen are going to pull of a miracle for the rest of the season and win the title then there is nothing stopping you backing either of them and by doing so you will very easily find plenty of bookies that are offering odds of 100/1 on each of them.
