Vodacom Durban July Log - 13 May was created by Bob Brogan
South Africa’s highest rated race horse, Rainbow Bridge, heads the 2021 Vodacom Durban July log which was issued by racing operator Gold Circle today.

The next three positions are occupied by automatic qualifiers Linebacker, War of Athena and Got The Greenlight by virtue of their respective victories in the Cape Derby (Gr1), SA Fillies Classic (Gr1) and Premier’s Champions Challenge (Gr1). Defending champion Belgarion and stable companion Do It Again, winner of the VDJ in 2018 & 2019, occupy the next two spots on the log.

The top 20 are listed in order of preference while the following five horses are tabled in alphabetical order. The final field of 18 horses plus two reserves will be declared on Tuesday, 22 June. Before then, there are a number of key races in which horses can still improve their chances of securing a place in the Vodacom Durban July to be run at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Saturday, 3 July.

Can run in the Lonsdale but that's a handicap race. Better option is the KZN Derby, a WFA race with penalties. It then might make the July field.

Looks like Golden Ducat has been scratched, not reflected in the betting

Guessing has never been widely acclaimed as a good gambling strategy

Eric Sands Racing

Today was one of those days that test us in racing. Golden Ducat injured his suspensory ligament in training today. No fault of anybody's, racehorses are athletes and like their human counterparts, injuries can happen. He is a very competitive horse and even though he mostly works alone, he puts every effort into his training. The track had just been harrowed so it was even and clean. He probably just put his foot down wrong. Pete Muscutt, I know the same could have happened if I was there. Take it easy my friend, you look after my horses like they are your own. Donovan Dillon, few realise how much this amazing horse is in your heart, thank you. My thoughts and feelings go out to Mr. and Mrs. Rattray, Mary Slack, Dumasani Bonani, Lucky Jevu, Helen Richardson and the rest of my team at home. Ducat, we will give you every bit of time and leave no stone unturned to have you back racing next season.

Just noticed that Nexus is relatively short (25/1) in the betting - yet he is not in the top 24 (as Golden Ducat is out) on the log - currently at a rating of 117, which means that he will be 1.5 kgs under sufferance carrying 53kg - could it be that the Snaiths are trying to sneak him in at a low weight aka Belgarion last year - will have to win a race in his prep though :unsure:

Maybe the various bookies sites are not all updated, but Nexus does not appear in the betting on H/wood or B/world

Question, if the July is not run because of COVID 19, what would happen to the ante post bets taken/laid, i.e. refunds, or would the bookies get to keep the money?

Bayern now that's a interesting question but I think they will keep the money because they are all crooks

No they wouldn’t, they would 100% refund if Covid cancelled the race

Thanks.

These 3yos has won from the year 2000. Trying to ascertain when merit ratings came into effect.

2002 - Ipi Tombe
2003 - Dynasty
2006 - Eyeofthetinger
2009 - Big City Life
2010 - Bold Silvano
2011 - Igugu
2012 - Pomodoro
2014 - Legislate
2018 - Do It Again

When Eyeofthetiger won, from the weight it carried 54kgs, one can presume merit ratings was already in effect.

From my information.

Igugu carried 55kgs. Highest weight by a 3yo filly to win.
Legislate carried 56kgs. Highest weight by a 3yo colt to win.

Any information on presumed jockey bookings for the July. Would like to know who will ride War Of Athena. I thought it will be Smanga but he was going to ride Belgarion in the Greyville 1900.

Presumed.

Gotthegreenlight - Muzi Yeni
Rainbow Bridge - Luke Ferraris
Linebacker - Grant van Niekerk
Kommetdieding - Sihle Cele
Russian Rock - Keegan De Melo
Shes A Keeper/Netta - Warren Kennedy

I think your question should be “who will be riding Gotthegreenlight”? :-)

Thanks. You are correct. Time of Horse Chestnut. It never run in the July due to the weight it would have carried. I see Fort Defiance carried 56kgs that year.

Aah yes the Horse Chestnut and Fort Defiance debacle. MdK made it quite clear that Horse Chestnut would not run in the July but on each subsequent declaration stage Horse Chestnut remained nominated. The strategy was to out-manoevre the rules at the time to ensure Fort Defiance got a low weight. Then the fight started with the Jockey Club .... :-)

after the week end that just passed many blew there chances of making the field.

2 that stood out and in doing so improved their chances of running July
shes a keeper and Matterhorn

Do it again won well but he is a lock for the race. Sir Micheal a certainty next time in a handicap off 94 MR

realistically remaining races to make a move. Pinnacle plates wont do it this year unless u rated above 118

i have 5 fillies still in with a shout of running the July. Always worry they switch to the fillies race at the last minute and bet goes bye bye

29 May
Daily News
Woolhavington

Gold Challenge
Cup Trial
19 June
Track and Ball Oaks and Derby

Races left in KZN to impress July Panel

There's going to be lots of opportunity for the light weight jocks - Lerena probably stuck without a mount and it would be interesting to see Kennedy's choice - Netta, She's a Keeper or even Atyaab; for me I would put a more experienced jock on Kommetdieding (unless of course Cele wins the Daily News with him)

Anyone knows what the story is with Domeyer - but he also rides at 57kgs, so probably stuck without a ride - after yesterday, Zackey may be on Sovereign Spirit :unsure:
