Champion jockeys Hugh Bowman and Blake Shinn will be out to boost their premiership stocks at Rosehill tomorrow.
The Sydney riders are second and third respectively, behind James McDonald however online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has Bowman as the $2.40 favourite to claim his third metropolitan title.
McDonald ($2.50), who will finish the season overseas, is five and half wins clear of Bowman and seven ahead of Shinn ($3.50).
Shinn pilots well backed favourite Libidosun ($2.60-$2.10) in the first race at Rosehill. Bowman’s best ride appears to be $2.45 favourite Danchai in the Winter Cup.
“This premiership race is going to go down to the wire and it’s great for punters. Bowman and Shinn are fierce competitors so you know they’ll be trying everything to peg back McDonald’s lead,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
