SILVESTRE de Sousa, who has ridden a staggering 37 winners so far this month, is as low as 1-14 with some bookmakers to regain the British Flat Jockey’s Crown he lost to Jim Crowley last season.

The Brazilian, who was 20 clear of his nearest pursuer Ryan Moore and a further three clear of  Crowley in the Stobart-backed championship before the start of Windsor’s evening fixture on Monday, started June as a 10-11 shot but is now 2-11 with Betfred and as low as 1-14 with Paddy Power.

Having ridden six winners in a day earlier this month, the 2015 champion gained another half dozen over the weekend, courtesy of a double at Lingfield on Saturday night and a four-timer at Pontefract on Sunday.

Speaking at Wolverhampton on Monday when he experienced a rare blank, De Sousa said: “It has been a good month as I’ve been going to meetings for four or five rides every day and I’m very lucky the good rides have come at the same time.

The British flat season stretches from 6 May to 21 October, 2017.
