A winning double last Saturday has helped Dwayne Dunn edge ahead in the see-sawing Melbourne jockeys’ title race.
Dunn has firmed from $3.00 into $2.60 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
He leads Damien Oliver ($2.80) by one win and is two wins clear of Craig Williams ($2.80).
It is a similarly tight battle for the Sydney Metropolitan title. James McDonald leads by three and is $2.40 favourite ahead of Blake Shinn ($2.70) and Hugh Bowman ($3.20).
“Dwayne Dunn is definitely on a roll and he’s a great chance to claim his first metro’ premiership. He’s the best supported jockey in Melbourne and plenty of punters are hoping James McDonald can hang on in Sydney,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
