He has already had his last ever Cheltenham Festival run. Soon his final Grand National race will be in the books too. Eventually, AP McCoy will no longer be a professional jumps jockey, just a retired one.

While the sport is set to lose the greatest pilot over fences it has ever seen, the Northern Irishman’s departure will revive what has been a monopolised British Champion Jockey competition since McCoy first won it during the 1995/96 season.

In the 18 seasons following McCoy’s maiden Champion Jockey success there has only ever been one name on the trophy. In 2015/16 it will be someone new, but the question remains; who?

Judge which of the five men Ladbrokes have priced up to profit from AP’s retirement is best placed to do so with our graphic below, showing each contender’s current season success:
