Jim Crowley holds sway in the Flat Jockeys' Championship but De Sousa is hot on his heels.

Crowley v De Sousa: Jockeys' Title Betting Update

Jim Crowley kept up the pressure on Silvestre De Sousa in the title race by becoming the first jockey to reach a century of winners when striking with a double at Brighton on Monday.

However, Crowley’s lead was slashed to just four when De Sousa hit back with a treble at Wolverhampton’s evening meeting, and the pair look set for a ding-dong tussle right through to the final day, which is British Champions Day at Ascot on October 15.

Despite holding a lead of just four (101-97), Crowley is firm favourite at best odds 1.33 to win the title, with De Sousa a very backable 3.5 with several firms.

Crowley appears to have some strong chances among his six rides at Chepstow on Tuesday, while De Sousa heads to Yarmouth for six rides.
