They’ve been the form horses of the Darwin Carnival and with that being the case, Zahspeed and Turf Man are the most popular to take out the Darwin Cup (2000m) this Monday.
Zahspeed, formerly with Danny O’Brien, seems to be loving life up north if his last start romp was any guide. He opened $2.70, got to $2.90 but after drawing gate two is now into $2.70.
Turf Man comes to the Cup off the back of a ten length demolition of his rivals in the NT Derby. He got $4.60 to $4.20 but is now at $4.50 with the support for Zahsped.
Folk Tales ($11-$9.50) has admirers despite an indifferent second up run, which followed an unbelievable first up win.
