McCoy Slashed For SPOTY

After winning the 2015 Leger Legends race on board the well-backed favourite Gannicus, William Hill have slashed the odds for AP McCoy to win the BBC Sports Personality Of The Year.

 William Hill cut the price from 20/1 to 16/1 for McCoy to win SPOTY.  

“AP McCoy is the most popular jockey in the world and he has a chance of winning Sports Personality Of The Year for a second time,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.  

William Hill also offer 8/1 for AP McCoy to return to the saddle and win the same race again next year.  

But Britain’s biggest bookmaker don’t expect him to return full-time.  

“AP McCoy has hung up his professional riding boots, but after getting such a great response from the crowd at Doncaster, he might be tempted to ride in the charity race again,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
