Silvestre De Sousa is now 8-13 favourite for the Flat Jockeys’ Championship after celebrating success at Leicester on Thursday.


De Sousa extended his tally for the season with wins on Martini Time and Potternello.


“De Sousa is in pole position for the title, but there appears to be very little interest among any of the top riders to chase the championship this year,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.


William Hill have been taking a handful of bets on Ryan Moore still winning the title and docked him to 8-1 from 10-1.
