McCoy Slashed to be a Sir

William Hill have slashed the odds for AP McCoy to receive a knighthood in the New Year Honour’s – Britain’s biggest bookmaker make it Even-Money (1/1) that he becomes Sir AP by the 2nd January 2016. 

McCoy will retire as a 20-time Champion Jockey, cementing his place as the greatest jump rider in history. 

“AP McCoy is the greatest jump jockey of all time and he is destined for a knighthood,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke. “As he heads in to retirement, his popularity is at an all-time high and the betting suggests he will be Sir Tony in the New Year.” 

And the wave of adoration from racing fans could propel McCoy to win Sports Personality Of The Year. William Hill make McCoy the 7/2 favourite, ahead of the likes of Lewis Hamilton (4/1) and Rory McIlroy (12/1).

“AP McCoy is loved by racing fans and the public voting system could drive him to the title,” said Jon Ivan-Duke from William Hill.
