Bowen Backed to be Champ
After winning the Conditional Jockeys’ Championship and collecting his title on the day that AP McCoy bowed out of race riding, Bowen has been slashed within 24 hours from 33-1 to 25-1 to follow in McCoy’s footsteps and lift the senior title.
“Sean Bowen has really caught the eye of racing fans and some of them clearly think he is the new McCoy,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
Champion Jockey – 2015/16 National Hunt Season: 5-4 Richard Johnson, 2-1 Sam Twiston-Davies, 5-1 Tom Scudamore, 8-1 Barry Geraghty, 14-1 Jason Maguire, 25-1 Sean Bowen, 50-1 Tom Cannon
