Lightinthenite is a proven performer over track and distance, has returned to racing in typically slick form this time and has maintained status as outright $3.60 favourite in 2015 Darwin Cup betting markets with Ladbrokes.com.au as a result.

Posting a credible seven wins and six minors through his 32 start career so far, Lightinthenite stamped his claims as serious top-end horse during the 2014 Darwin Carnival; running a credible fourth in the Chief Minister’s Cup (1600m) before placing second in the Cup.

Having returned this time for success in the Chief Minister’s Cup on July 11th, the Galileo gelding has been confirmed to be partnered by leading hoop Hugh Bowman and could very well receive the run of the race from barrier 3.

Whistle Stop is yet to herald much interest from punters in 2015 Darwin Cup betting markets but has maintained status as sole occupant of the second line at a quote of $6.

Securing four wins and ten minors through 24 career starts so far, Whistle Stop was a standout performer for Darren Weir through autumn but has transferred to the care of Dick Leech for his current campaign.

Running a credible sixth in the Alice Springs Cup (2000m) on May 4th, the Street Sense gelding placed second in each of the Hot 100 BM60 (1600m) and Buntine Handicap (1900m) before returning to the winner’s circle in the Metric Mile (1600m) last time out on July 25th.

Sure to receive a great ride from barrier eight, Whistle Stop has been charged with carrying only 54kgs in the 2015 Darwin Cup.

One of several chances for success for Neil Dyer in the 2015 Darwin Cup, Royal Request offers punters great value for money at current $6.50 odds.

Confirmed to line up for his fourteenth start this time in the 2015 Darwin Cup, Royal Request was disappointing when beating only one runner home in a Bendigo minor over 2200m on April 2nd, but progress to fourth place finishes in each of his next three starts.

Having taken a shining to the Fannie Bay course, Royal Request won the Special Conditions Handicap (1600m) on July 4th before repeating the dose in the Buntine Handicap last time out on July 18th.
