July Weights Published

Countdown to 25 July

Capoeira wins the Cup Trial on Saturday – now supplemented for July (Pic – Candiese Lenferna)

The weights for the 2020 Gr1 Vodacom Durban July were published on Tuesday, with Gr3 Cup Trial winner Capoeira supplemented at the last access stage for the big race.

A son of Oratorio, Capoeira impressed at Hollywoodbets Greyville on Saturday over the 1750m. His ability to find the 2200m may have a question mark hanging over it, but he is in good form.

    I say it again they all need to start running now to beat Rainbow Bridge.
    Even Hawwaam’s running away

    1. Editor says:

      Hi Ian
      Plse add your surname
      (Apologies to Donald!)

  2. Praveen Gokul says:

    I make Got The Greenlight & Padre Pio big runners with 53kgs. Golden Ducat not to be left out either. Vardy, Rainbow Bridge & Belgarion for the places. I was hoping for Bernard Fayed Herbe to get a ride in the big one, but don’t think he can make the weight on whats available

  3. Martin le Roux says:

    To all those non believers Soqrat will show you just how far Hawwaam would have won had he stayed in SA. My money with Soqrat


    I’d love it if the top four places in The July could be filled by our world class jockeys of colour = T Gumede, Jubu Jacobs, Jospin Solomons & Mr. K Sakayi

  5. Jay August says:

    Martin (le Roux), I wonder how differently Soqrat would have been campaigned had he not been in the same stable as Hawwaam and whether that difference may have given him more respect?

    He has been a consistently good performer from two to four with an ability to produce at least two standout performances each season. Had he been born in any other year than 2015, he may well have been accorded more respect, and achieved more.

    Of the three-year-old’s it seems that most are ignoring the claim of Shango. He is a complicated horse who needs a decent pace and a clever jockey and if he gets those he may well be the best value bet in the 2020 July.

    Thank you

    @Jay August – I totally agree with your last comment re: Shango. He is a 3 time winner, who could have been a 5 time winner had he not been baulked by Alibi Guy in a 1900m race at Greyville as a 2yr old and not lost the Derby (was bumped twice) a few weeks ago. Interesting that he is at 40-1 versus Got the Greenlight who is at 7-1 as they were super close in the Derby. I remember Pomodoro dead hearing in the Derby. Then came to Daily News and ran 7th i think… Then went on to Win the July turning the formline on its head against the favourite Jackson. Shango is following almost same steps… Only concern is a Jockey hasn’t been declared…

  9. Daniel Lopes says:

    I think DO IT AGAIN will do it just because theres so much involved in racing these days ( politics) A Marcus got the ride nows the horse and wished he could of ridden this horse last year… now has the chance again just to make history in the time line of horse racing. bearly any money going for this horse this year which will make it a great price at probably 4/1 I say. any way just my opinion on what I like, all the best to the punters!

  10. Boete sing says:

    Mr Bosch I wonder Gareth Wright can ride 53 kg padre pio with that weight will make them run pls lets hope he makes the final field even serino moodley is an option counting the days
