Frankie Halves for Sports Personality

William Hill have slashed the odds on Frankie Dettori winning Sports Personality Of The Year after he added another Ascot win to his Derby triumph.


William Hill now offer odds of 25/1 from 50/1 for Dettori to be crowned SPOTY king.


Dettori rode his 50th career Royal Ascot winner and with his renewed popularity after a barren patch in the wilderness, William Hill think he’s got claims of SPOTY glory.


“Frankie Dettori is probably the most popular jockey around and now he’s smashing in the winners again, he could be crowned Sports Personality at the end of the year,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.


“Dettori is the king of jockeys and he could add the SPOTY crown to his collection.”


The current 2/1 SPOTY favourite is another jockey, AP McCoy, who recently retired from the saddle.
