Confirmation Tommy Berry will not be returning to Hong Hong next season has prompted sportsbet.com.au put him at the top of betting for the Australian Metropolitan Jockey Premiership.
The online bookie has posted the champion hoop at $4.60 favourite to ride the most city winner’s in the new racing season, which starts tomorrow. Sydney premiership winner James McDonald is $5.00 and Hugh Bowman $7.00.
“Tommy Berry is a world class rider and has made it known he is here to stay, so that’s good enough for us. He’ll have the support of the top stables in Sydney and will also command top rides at the carnivals,’’ sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson said.
Defending champion Nash Rawiller is huge odds at $21, but he will make spasmodic appearances here due to a contract to ride in Hong Kong. Brisbane title winner Tim Bell is $15.
