The Punting Premierships (Sydney jockeys)

We’ll finish up our analysis of last season’s top trainers and hoops with an assessment of Sydney’s most profitable jockeys. The following table lists the top 10 in the Sydney Jockeys Premiership and again we will use Profit on Turnover (and proportionate staking) as our measuring stick: Let’s go through the results for each of Sydney’s top 10 jockeys: • Nash Rawiller – excellent strike-rate, excellent all-round record and excellent performance on fancied runners. At some stage the market will react accordingly but it hasn’t just yet. • Corey Brown – significantly lower strike-rate than Rawiller, but comparable profit figures. • Tim Clark – clearly Sydney’s standout jockey from a punting perspective, with good profitability despite a mediocre winning strike-rate. • Hugh Bowman – very poor season from the former Sydney premiership hoop. Had the worst punting results for any top 10 jockey in our Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney series. • Kerrin McEvoy – only average results for McEvoy. • Glyn Schofield – solid season for the veteran jockey with a better than average performance. • Brenton Avdulla – very poor profit figures and dismal strike-rate for such a highly touted jockey. • Josh Adams – contrasting results for Adams with good overall figures underdone by an exceptionally poor record on fancied runners. • Christian Reith – Reith’s overall results were just OK, but punters following him on horses at 6/1 and under did poorly. • Jim Cassidy – always a high profile jockey but his results last season from a punting perspective were a little worse than average. The most profitable hoops to follow amongst last season’s top 10 were Nash Rawiller, Corey Brown and Tim Clark. The worse performing jockeys for punters were Hugh Bowman and Brenton Avdulla. That concludes our series on the punting profitability of metropolitan trainers and jockeys. Hope you enjoyed it and that it has given you some insight you won’t find in the mainstream media.   Happy Punting   David Duffield
