26/07/02 Scott and Durden in Title Showdown at the Valley
r2brettscott.jpg (13969 bytes)The Melbourne jumps jockey premiership will be decided at Moonee Valley tomorrow.

At present Brett Scott and Craig Durden are locked together on seven wins and the Hurdle and Hiskens Steeplechase will decide the premiership.

If either Scott or Durden fail to win a race at the Valley, then Scott would win the title as he has ridden six seconds as compared to Durden's three.

Scott is hoping to wrap up the title early be riding Real Tonic to victory in the Hurdle. But Durden's mount Zabeel's Pride is expected to be one of the hardest to beat.

r1cdurden.jpg (14798 bytes)St. Steven is Scott's mount in the Hiskens Steeplechase, while Durden will be aboard the wildcard entrant Classic Prince.

Interestingly both Scott's mounts are trained by John Wheeler, while Durden is resting his hopes upon the uncanny shoulders of the veteran Jim Houlahan.

While the jumps jockeys title is yet to be decided, Eric Musgrove has already wrapped up the training gong.

Musgrove currently has seven wins, the same as Robert Smerdon, but Musgrove has superior number of placegetters. Smerdon does not have a runner in either jumps event tomorrow, while Musgrove has Hibernian Prince in the Hiskens.

PICS - Quentin Lang.
