See the big race movers 'n shakers

Following his excellent start to finish victory in the Gr1 Hollywoodbets Gold Challenge, the Eric Sands-trained Rainbow Bridge heads the latest Vodacom Durban July log issued by Gold Circle on Thursday.

The only newcomers to the log are Lady Of Steel and Tristful in positions 19 & 20, respectively.

Lady of Steel finished third in the Gr1 Woolavington 2000 over the weekend, while Tristful claimed second spot in the World Sports Betting 1900 a week earlier.

Chijmes and Sachdev who appeared in the first Log released by Gold Circle have both been scratched and trainer Mike De Kock has withdrawn Queen Supreme as a supplementary entry.

At this stage Hawwaam remains a runner until the star colt’s international travel plans have been absolutely finalised.

    Hi Mr Ed surely Mr de kock knows weather hawwaam is going overseas or not it’s very unfair to the public to be left on strings to back Hawwam or not,cause if we do back it now and it gets scratched we loose our money.

  2. mabaker says:

    Mr ED, could you post the weights as you think they will be? JC Lee Ching

    1. Editor says:

      Shortly Mabaker

  3. JT says:

    can we get the full log.. not just the top 25…. All horses which is still nominated. Why is this so difficult ? A entry which are position 28 might still get in ? Or not ?

    1. Editor says:

      Can we get your full names please JT
      You are correct – any runner beyond 25th could get in
      This was kindly compiled by Jay August as a service to SP readers

    1. Editor says:

      Thanks John
      Welcome
      Is there any particular horse beyond the top 25 that you were interested in?

  5. Jay August says:

    John, the log is produced by Gold Circle and the NRB. The log positions the first 20 in order of preference, another 5 alphabetically and the rest have no ranking or “place” and are not included in the log.

    If you want the full entry list go here – https://www.sahorseracing.co.za/sahr/public.html

    Then scroll down to the 25 July – Greyville – hover over 1 and then click through weights – all the entries are there, although the weights have not yet been framed.

    Hi editor… there’s a horse not in the 20 short list… called its my turn… it’s on the full list Jay August sent of the link… just wondering it has a rating of 118…2 years ago it didn’t make the cut to get into the July after winning at Scottsville in June his owner was annoyed he didn’t get in… he wins July day and the gold cup… after 2 years he comes back 5th by 1 3/4 length to g g dynasty… any views on him deserving a crack at the July?

  7. Sammy says:

    With all due respect to MDK’s plans (he’s a great trainer and a great guy), from a purely selfish point of view I would love to see Hawwaam take his place in the final July field. He has not proven himself against the best SA has to offer. Last year’s July presented the chance but fate decided otherwise.
    For whatever reason, Hawwaam did not cover himself in glory during the Cape season, and commentators shouting from the rooftops “he’s one of the best we’ve ever seen” does not make it so. Queen Supreme’s run in the Empress Club on Saturday and Cirillo’s last place in the Gold Challenge on Sunday amplifies this point further imo.

  8. John Mynhardt says:

    A horse like Nexus. If he wins Cup Trail. Will that be enough to get him in ? i believe he might be underrated and if he wins and gets in a danger at the weights to give them all a run in the July

  9. Sha says:

    Where is one world that horse should be a runner I think it will win the Durban july

    1. Editor says:

      Sha, plse use full names

    Mr Jay August

    I remember last year that you compiled an article for the vodacom durban july
    It was about the preps leading up to the vodacom durban july and how significant preps are in predicting the july outcome
    It was very useful to punters and I can safely say you have ample knowledge of horse racing

    I kindly request on behalf of myself and many others that you please do it again… No pun intended

      Thanks Susan

  12. david mollett says:

    I’ve spotted a July “roughie” – Tierra Del Fuego.
    Great run at level weights with Hawwaam and Soqrat.
    92-10 a place with WSB.

  13. Mickiel says:

    Marlon hawwaam wil not run i heard hawwaam is in quarantine for 90 days after the 90 days he will go overseas they can’t postpone the july just for one horse i nvr took a likening to hawwaam even last yr if he didn’t get scratch do it again wid hv still one

  14. John Mynhardt says:

    I only have question mark about the distance for this horse. Will he see it out ?
