Coleman 25/1 To Be Top Jockey

Aidan Coleman is 25-1 with William Hill to be the top National Hunt Jockey this season, after the announcement he has joined forces with trainer John Ferguson.

Coleman is expected to continue to ride plenty of horses for Venetia Williams, for whom he has ridden for eight years.

“Aidan wants a crack at the title and while he is a much bigger price than Richard Johnson, those odds could get closer if Coleman continues to fire in the winners,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
