The Vodacom Durban July betting pressure this week has been spread around every horse, apart from the ’big 4’ – which is quite predicable with the bigger price values, as July fever takes over.
That was the word from Hollywoodbets Patrick Bradley ahead of South Africa’s great betting rush of the season – the Gr1 Vodacom Durban July to be run at 16h20 on Saturday at Hollywoodbets Greyville.
“The most pressure has been for Eyes Wide Open ( in to 12/1 ) and shrewd money for Lady In Black at 50/1 – also lots of local KZN support for Roy Had Enough at 66/1.”
Patrick said that Do It Again has been static at 4/1 as have Rainbow Bridge and Barahin at 6/1 each.
“Hawwaam is confusing as he has gone a bit cold in the market and has drifted out to 2/1. Most experts thought he would shorten after the good draw and my feeling is that 2/1 or thereabouts is the peak price and the pressure will come back for him on Friday.”
