NSW Metro Jockey Premiership 2018/19 Odds - James McDonald heads the betting

  • NSW Metro Jockey Premiership Odds
  • Can James McDonald reign supreme? 
James McDonald is favourite for the 2018/19 NSW Metro Jockey Premiership.

With a new season upon us, we look at the betting market for the NSW Metro Jockey Premiership for the 2018/19 season. Star hoop James McDonald has returned to riding in sensational form and is favourite to take out the title. 

JMac hasn’t ridden a full season since the 2015/16 season, that saw him dominate the Jockey Premiership, finishing with 89 winners, a full 29 ahead of Hugh Bowman. Ladbrokes currently has the best price for McDonald, pricing him at $3.25. 

The market really gets interesting when we look at Hugh Bowman. The rider of Winx is the firm $2.80 with Sportsbet, but the value can be found if you shop around. He is the $6.00 fourth favourite with Crownbet and is a massive $12.00 with Ladbrokes. 

Hugh Bowman finished last season in seventh place in the Jockey Premiership with 57 wins but was the only hoop with over 10 wins to finish with a strike rate of over 20 percent. 

Brenton Avdulla clearly won the 2017/18 NSW metro jockey premiership, finishing with 92 winners, 12 winners clear of runner-up Blake Shinn. Avdulla is $4.00 with Sportsbet but double that price with Crownbet. Punters who back Avdulla must note he is starting a three-month stint in Japan on August 4. 

Runner-up of last year Blake Shinn is solid in the market. Shinn is a consistent performer and tends to always ride winners. The best price for Shinn is $7.50 with Sportsbet. 

Tye Angland is well found with Ladbrokes, opening as the solid second favourite at $4.00. Angland finished third in the premiership last year, but that hasn’t stopped Crownbet offering upwards of $11.00 for him to be victorious in 2018/19.
