Talented young rider Tim Bell can secure his first Brisbane Jockeys' Premiership at Eagle Farm today.

Talented young jockey, Tim Bell, starts the final day of the 2013/14 metropolitan season one win clear of arch rival Michael Cahill and in line to claim his first Brisbane Jockey's Premiership.

Cahill is defending the title and has five rides at Eagle Farm today - Race 1 no. 2 Empress Eugenie , Race 2 No. 9 On Demand , Race 3 no. 8 Goddess Of Luck , Race 4 no. 9 Man With The Plan and Race 7 no. 5 Lily My Girl . On numbers alone, this doesn't appear to be enough for him to peg back and go past Bell, who has six winning chances at the Farm.

Bell's rides are Race 1 no. 5 Colour Me Pretty , Race 2 no. 8 Supersport , Race 3 no. 7 High Ace , Race 5 no. 11 So Delicious , Race 7 no. 7 Miamley and Race 8 no. 10 Heart Smart .

Also going down to the wire is the Queensland Trainers' Premiership, with Rob Heathcote (76.5) leading Tony Gollan and John Manzelmann (76) by a half win, with Matt Dunn (75) a further victory behind.

With Manzelmann based in north Queensland and no more runners this season, he's out of contention. However, Brisbane based Heathcote and Gollan have chances, as does Dunn, who trains in Northern NSW, and regularly crosses the Tweed.

Heathcote's hopes of clinging to the lead look forlorn with just one runner - Race 4 no. 2 St Andrews .

Dunn's hopes are; Race 1 no. 5 Colour Me Pretty , Race 2 no. 10 Warning Signal and Race 4 no. 3 Epic Choice .

Gollan, who has already wrapped up the Brisbane Trainers' Premiership, has six chances to secure the double - Race 1 no. 7 Red's The Go , Race 3 no. 5 Bernitchy , Race 4 no. 7 Eureka Dazzer and no. 11 Saddleback and Race 8 no. 4 General Son and no. 8 Zizzeldo .
