A strong book of rides tomorrow could edge Hugh Bowman closer to premiership rival Brenton Avdulla.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has Bowman on three favourites and three second favourites, from his full book of seven rides at Canterbury.
Bowman is $2.00 to win the title and he trails the $1.60 favourite Avdulla by 5.5 wins.
In South Australia Jamie Kah ($1.80) leads Clare Lindop ($2.10) by four wins in their metropolitan title fight.
Craig Williams will miss two metro’ meetings, but is still $1.80 favourite ahead of Beau Mertens ($1.95), who leads by one win in the Melbourne title race.
“Bowman still has some work to do, but a treble last Saturday brought him right back into contention. Looking at his book of rides for tomorrow he could edge even closer to Avdulla,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
