FRANKIE DETTORI is a whopping 100-1 to be crowned top jockey in the upcoming Racing League – as bookies reveal their favourites to win.

The Italian legend, 51, is sky high in the betting for best rider, with Daniel Muscutt the 8-1 favourite.

While The East, one of seven regional teams fans can get behind, are 5-2 favourites to scoop the whole thing.

The hotly anticipated Racing League kicks off at Doncaster on Thursday.

Sun Racing has teamed up with the exciting competition to offer you £9.50 tickets – claim yours HERE.

Dettori will ride for team Wales and The West, who bookies make a 4-1 chance for the six-meeting series.

Jack Mitchell, who was crowned top jockey in last year's inaugural competition, and Tom Marquand are both 10-1 to win this year.

William Hill spokesperson Tony Kenny said: "Despite his team being third favourites to win the William Hill Racing League, we don’t expect Frankie Dettori to be a consistent presence this year, and make him 100-1 to be named top jockey.
