Dolan And Duggan Fight For Series Lead

The NSW Rising Star Series is heating up with a tremendous battle being staged between front-runners Robbie Dolan and Jenny Duggan.

Duggan led the point score on 18 points until Wyong’s December 19 heat but has since been overhauled by a mere point after Dolan’s win aboard Fuchu.

Fuchu scored a last-stride victory from Cuba (Patrick Scorse). Right behind the pair in third place was Duggan on Resonare.

Dolan’s seven points for that win pushed him to 22 points to edge past Duggan (three points for third) on 21 points with Mikayla Weir (16 points) back in third place.

The next heat is at Tamworth on January 4.

Dolan and Duggan are unlikely to be competing at Tamworth which could open the door for Weir to overhaul them.

Her master Todd Howlett has entered Big Reg for the race who last competed in a TAB Highway race at Rosehill Gardens on December 1 when seventh to the talented Noble Boy.

Weir has ridden five winners at Tamworth.

Tamworth-based Wendy Peel has been in slashing form with a winning treble at Armidale on December 18 and a double at Quirindi on Boxing Day.

Peel sits in fourth spot on the Rising Star Series ladder with 15 points and can put herself in the mix as she is certain to have good mounts at Tamworth on Friday.

The Series then moves to Cessnock with a heat being held on January 8 and then to Wagga.

The Series Final is at Randwick in June.
