Bowman caught up at the weekend with a treble at Rosehill Gardens which means he now only trails by 5.5 wins.
He won on board Hualalai, Rustic Melody, and Gold Symphony as his rival walked away from Rosehill with nothing.
Avdulla could only grab second places with Walk The Streets, Sir Plush and Destiny’s Kiss.
Bowman will know what it feels like to get run down as the same happened to him back in 2012 when Nash Rawiller caught him.
It was inspiring form back then when Rawiller won the first four races on the card at a Rosehill Saturday and closed that gap to 1.5 rides. It would be three more years before Bowman won his first jockey championship.
Bowman will be looking for that kind of form to try and catch Avdulla before he runs out of time, and he has the form to do it.
