It is very fair to say that there are currently three jockeys that are in with a chance of winning this year’s Irish Nation Hunt Jockeys Championship, whilst there are many other jockeys that could beat the odds and win that award it is Davy Russell, Ruby Walsh and also Paul Townend that have the most realistic chance of winning.
One of the benefits of signing up to the Paddy Power betting site is that they are always going to have all manner of unique betting markets on offer and they do currently have one on which you can bet on the jockey you think will be crowned the champion this year.
Below I will be giving you an insight into the odds on offer on some of the less fancied jockeys to win the title this year, but as far as the three favourites go you will find that Davey Russell is the one most punters are backing, so much so his odds are now even money to win the title, Ruby Walsh is at 2/1 and Paul Townend is 5/2.
Will Rachael Blackmore Win?
There is another jockey that could just win the title this season, and that is of course Rachael Blackmore, for whilst that jockey may not have as many winners currently as those above there is always a chance with some luck in riding as the season progresses that number will grow.
As far as just what odds you are going to get on Rachael Blackmore winning the Irish National Hunt Jockeys Championship, well currently you can secure 8/1 over at Paddy Power and that does appear to be the value bet of the day if you don’t fancy the chances of Davey Russell, Ruby Walsh or Paul Townend!
It may also be worth having a small punt on Jack Kennedy for at 12/1 he isn’t out of the running for the title by a long shot and it would take too many winners for him to be catapulted right to the top of the current leader boards, but that is a decision that you will have to make as to whether to back him or not!
As for just which jockeys are currently friendless in this particular betting market well it is jockeys such as both Mark Walsh who is very easy to back at odds of 33/1 that does appear to have no chance of winning the title this year and then there is also Danny Mullins at 50/1
There are two other jockeys that it is very fair to say have very little chance of winning this award and they are David Mullins and Sean Flanagan, however anything is always possible in horse racing and if you want to back either of those two complete outsiders the 66/1 odds that can be bagged over at Paddy Power are certainly high enough to tempt you to place a bet on them!
