Michael Hickmott has a great record when he takes horses to Darwin and he has Lieder as the short priced elect with Sportsbet.com.au in the feature on Monday, the Darwin Cup (2000m).
Winx would have been impressed with how arrogant Lieder did it last time out in a lead up to the big one and as such, stifles betting for Monday, where he is at $2.40, out from $2.25 but bear in mind did touch $2.15.
Group l winner Ihtsahymn is a great story and he is loving life for Rob Gulberti. He touched $3.40 from $4.40 but has settled at $4.00. NT Derby winner Poet’s Landing for Lloyd Kennewell has been heavily backed, into as short as $3.20 from $7.50 but is now at $3.30.
