64 SPORT SUNDAY JULY 31 2016 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 HOSKING HOPE THE 13-year-old version of Jamie Hosking dreamt of this happening. And now, all grown up at 21, the Top End greyhound trainer is on the cusp of achieving something no other local has in 12 years winning the Darwin Cup. Hosking and his team, including long-time partner Jasmin, will box two chances in tonights Cup final, with Arn hen Villain jumping out of box one as the $2.75 favourite. The other, Crystals Way, is the races biggest outsider. I know a lot of people will be following it, especially now hes favourite, too, Hosking said with a grin. Hes the type of dog who feels the moment, so we hope he comes out and just does his own thing. I dont know if he can feel my pressure, but he turns up for big races. Ron Phillips was the last Darwin trainer to succeed in the race with Wanton Angel in 2004, but interstaters have dominated since, including Hoskings good mate Stephen Whyte, of Victoria. Whyte won the past two Cups with different dogs and his 2014 champion Clash of Kings last week snuck into tonights race.

Handsome Tycoon roared past stablemate, short-priced favourite and frontrunner Captain Punch at the top of the Fannie Bay straight, then held off Silent Whispers late charge to score by almost a length. It was the first time any horse completed the Pioneer Sprint-Palmerston Sprint double in the same year.
