Dettori for Sports Personality

Frankie Dettori rode Golden Horn to victory in the biggest Flat race of the season on Saturday, The Derby, and now bookmakers William Hill are offering odds on him crowning an astonishing return to the spotlight with a victory in the BBC Sports Personality Of The Year.

Frankie’s success may not be limited to a Derby victory, with William Hill offering odds of 50/1 that the flamboyant jockey wins this year’s Sports Personality Of The Year. However, he may be undone by another jockey (or at least he was until his retirement) – AP McCoy is the 2/1 favourite for this year’s award.

The bookmakers paid out some large bets on Dettori’s winning ride to punters up and down the country, with one mystery customer in Lichfield collecting a £23,000 payout after successfully staking £15,000 on Golden Horn at the start of week in a William Hill shop.

William Hill estimate the payout on Frankie Dettori’s victory in Saturday’s big race stretches to atleast £10million across the industry.

BBC SPOTY: 2/1 AP McCoy, 4/1 Lewis Hamilton, 8/1 Andy Murray, 8/1 Rory McIlroy, 12/1 Katarina Johnson-Thompson, 16/1 Jessica Ennis-Hill, 25/1 Chris Froome, 25/1 James Anderson, 33/1 Ben Stokes, 33/1 Chris Robshaw, 33/1 Mo Farah, 40/1 Amir Khan, 40/1 Harry Kane, 40/1 Steven Gerrard, 50/1 OR BIGGER THE REST
