Victorian Metro Jockey Premiership 2018/19 Odds - Craig Williams and Damian Lane set to dominate

  • The 2018/19  Victorian Metro Jockey Premiership gets underway
  • Will it be another duel between Craig Williams and Damian Lane? 
Can Craig Williams go back-to-back?

With a new season upon us, we look at the betting market for the Victorian Metro Jockey Premiership for the 2018/19 season. The betting suggests there are only four winning chances, with another possible duel between Craig Williams and Damian Lane. 

Craig Williams can always be counted on to give his all for the Victorian Metro Jockey Premiership, also known as the Roy Higgins medal. It was a match race between Williams and Damian Lane in 2017/18. 

In the final month of the season, Williams went to another level. He finished the month with 18 winners from 46 rides. This was with an average SP of $6.15. That’s an ROI of 114 percent over the entire month.

There is no doubt Damian Lane is one of Victoria’s best Jockeys. Lane finished the 2017/18 season with 57 winners and 107 placings, finishing with the highest earnings of any jockey in Victoria. With the support of master trainer Darren Weir, expect another big season from Lane. 

Champion hoop Damien Oliver finished the previous season in fourth place, with 43 winners. Surprisingly, Oliver actually had the worst strike rate of any Jockey in the top five. Ladbrokes has Oliver a firm $4.50 third favourite. It pays to go looking if you like Oliver, with Crownbet offering double that price. 

Star apprentice jockey Ethan Brown had an incredible 2017/18 season. Brown finished in third place, behind only Williams and Lane on 49 victories. Brown is under ‘any other jockey’ with Sportsbet and Crownbet but is a huge $26 with Ladbrokes.
