Hugh Bowman looks like finishing all over the top of Brenton Avdulla in the race for the NSW Jockeys Premiership according to the market with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
Avdulla’s suspension has seen him go from $1.75 favourite out to $4.00, meaning Bowman is the new dominant favourite at $1.25.
One punter had $1,000 on Bowman at $2.00 before he rode his three winners yesterday with another customer placing a $850 bet at the same price.
“Bowman should be able to bridge the 3.5 win margin given Avdulla will miss two city meetings next week. Punters took as much as $16 on Bowman in April so he’ll be a shocking result for us,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
