Johnson On Top In Bid To Beat McCoy Tally

William Hill have gone odds-on that this season Richard Johnson equals or betters Sir Anthony McCoy’s tally for winners from last season.

McCoy rode 231 winners in 2015, but William Hill think Johnson now looks destined to topple that scoreline – it’s now 5/6 from Even-Money that he does so.

“As long as Richard Johnson can stay fit and healthy, he is on course to beat Sir Anthony’s 2015 tally,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
