Fran Berry is overpriced at up to 8/1 to win a first Flat jockeys' championship this year.

Four times a runner-up, Berry has built up a massive support network and was in line to be the first rider to win the title without one of the big jobs before injury befell him in 2005.

Three years later, still without a stable jockey position, he got to within four of Pat Smullen, so he can compete if things fall his way.

Berry was joint-top going into last night's Dundalk meeting and with Jessica Harrington's increasing firepower, he is not to be underestimated.
