SPOTY shake up post image

Tony McCoy has usurped Lewis Hamilton (above) as favourite for this year’s BBC Sports Personality of the Year award.

Legendary jumps jockey McCoy shocked the racing world when announcing his imminent retirement after riding his 200th winner of the season and it’s forced a drastic revision of the prices.

McCoy, who will hang up his saddle at some point between now and the end of the campaign in April, will almost certainly claim a 20th title in a row and he’s no bigger than 5/1 with Sportingbet to also add a second BBC crown.

F1 champ Hamilton currently holds the BBC gong after he took 34% of the SPOTY vote at the end of 2014, well ahead of golfer Rory McIlroy on 20% but he’s drifted to 8/1 to win it again this year following strong support for McCoy.

Next in the market at 9/1 comes McIlroy and Andy Murray, who started his tennis year with another runner-up spot in the Australian Open.
