Dylan Dunn has landed an important winner in his bid to claim the Melbourne apprentices’ premiership.

Since Dunn won on Heza Ripper at the metropolitan meeting at Sale on June 8, fellow apprentice Michael Dee had pegged back six wins back in the race for the title.

Dunn started Saturday’s Caulfield meeting two in front of Dee and was able to add to his season tally of city winners with another victory on Heza Ripper in The Cove Hotel Handicap.

It brought up his 31st city winner of the season in Melbourne.

Dunn’s father Dwayne leads the Melbourne jockeys’ premiership.

“Words can’t even describe how much it means to me,” Dylan Dunn said, talking about the apprentices’ premiership.

“I’ve never wasted so hard. I’ve ridden at 55 kilos every weekend for at least three months plus now, and usually I’d struggle to do that on a weekly basis.

“I was thinking about it the other day, it is one of those things you can’t physically buy it so I think, especially if Dad won it as well, it would be life changing.”

Heza Ripper was well backed, firming from $7.50 to $4.50, and after travelling nicely in front he gave a good kick early in the straight.

The four-year-old got home by a half length over the resuming Camdus with the same margin to Lord Barrington third.
