TAB punters backing Jamie Kah to reach ton at Flemington

Jamie Kah’s quest to become the first jockey in Victorian racing history to officially ride 100 city winners in a season will be realised on Saturday at Flemington, according to TAB customers.

Since the bookmaker opened a special Kah winners market, more than 50 per cent of the money has come for the 25-year-old to ride three or more winners ($5).

Kah heads into Flemington Finals Day on 97 winners – with seven meetings up her sleeve – after solitary wins at both Caulfield and Sandown the past week.

The four or more winners market, rated a $21 chance, has attracted 10 per cent of the interest.

The $2 favoured option is for Kah to ride at least a double.

Kah has eight rides on the nine-race card including $1.40 favourite Grand Promenade in race 2.

Kah also rides Regulus (race 1, $13), Seb Song (race 2, $4.80), Forbidden City (race 4, $6.50), Double Chance (race 5, $10), Odeon (race 6, $6.50), Token Spirit (race 7, $5) and Barbie’s Fox (race 9, $5).

Seb Song, a horse Kah rode to victory at The Valley last campaign, looms as a possible early booster in the bid to eclipse Brett Prebble’s longstanding record of 99½ winners – set in the 1999-2000 season.

Finals Day has been prone to jockeys riding multiple winners – none better than Craig Williams.

Williams rode six winners on Finals Day in 2018 and five winners at the same meeting in 2016.

Williams, Ben Melham, Damien Oliver and Linda Meech have ridden doubles on Finals Day the past two years.
