William Buick

Leading Norwegian rider William Buick is slowly becoming the dark horse to land the jockey championship, having been in the form of his life over the last few weeks, landing a four timer at Newmarket last Saturday.

Although Oisin Murphy is still the odds on favourite to land back to back titles, Buick has gone from 33/1 at the start of the season to as short as 3/1 with some firms.

Godolphin's number one rider has been taking a lot of other rides with other trainers and connections this term and been turning them into winners and as of Wednesday evening he was joint third in the table with Ben Curtis on 51 winners for the term.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the rules for jockeys have changed dramatically this season, with jockeys limited to one meeting per day and the championship running from June 1 until November 7.

(Credit Racing Post) Paddy Power's Paul Binfield said:"Buick is the story of the season.

"He was 33-1 at the beginning of the year and we now consider him to be the most likely candidate to stop Murphy from winning again.

"It is extremely open this season and Buick's fabulous four-timer at Newmarket exhibited his intention in a campaign in which he really enters the equation with riders limited to one fixture per day.

"We still believe Oisin will prevail but it's amazing what confidence can do for a rider, and we slashed Buick into 5-1 after Saturday and cut him again to 3-1 when punters jumped on the bandwagon."

Like Paddy Power, Betfair also have Buick as the 3/1 second favourite to take the title an the well known Barry Orr from the bookmakers has said: "That would be by far the worst result for us as he was initially an unconsidered chance behind a whole host of others."

Murphy leads the way by eight wins to Tom Marquand with Buick and Curtis currently another three behind second place.
