Apprentice Robbie Dolan has taken out the penultimate Rising Star Series heat at Canterbury Park on Wednesday which has elevated him to second spot on the leaderboard.
Dolan guided Medovina ($2.90 favourite) to a narrow win from Mikayla Weir (Stone Cold, $41) and Sam Weatherley (Metamorphic, $5).
However, after 24 heats Jenny Duggan is assured of her first Rising Star Series heading into the Series Final on the Kensington Track on Monday, 10th June 2019.
Duggan has wrapped up the Series with 57 points and enjoys an unassailable 19-point lead over Robbie Dolan with just the Final remaining.
As per the conditions, the final is restricted to NSW and ACT apprentices who have earned points during the running of the Rising Star series.
Finalists amassing the highest number of points in the heats shall be first available for rides in the Final.
In the event that any apprentice who is eligible to compete in the Final is unable to ride through injury, suspension or otherwise, additional riders are the next NSW riders in line on the points table.
