Leading the market we find Belgarion, who leapt to the head of the Durban July betting after a comfortable triumph in the World Sports Betting 1900. Justin Snaith’s five-year-old went into that Grade Two as the 8/11 favourite, following three fine handicap wins, and duly brushed his rivals aside with a power-packed display.

Sitting behind Belgarion is another of Justin Snaith's runners, Do It Again, who will attempt to become the first horse to win three-straight Duban July's. They are two of five possible entrants for Snaith in the 2020 Durban July, with Drill Hall Stakes winner, Bunker Hunt also likely to make an appearance.

Rainbow Bridge finished just behind Do It Again in last year’s renewal of the Durban July. After two further narrow defeats in both the Queen’s Plate and the SunMet, Eric Sands’ five-year-old finally claimed an overdue victory in the Gold Challenge, and he currently splits Belgarion and Do It Again in the market.

2020 SunMet winner, Vardy was beaten by Rainbow Bridge in the Gold Challenge last time out, and will be gunning for revenge in the Durban July. The only other entrant sitting on a price shorter than 10/1 is three-year-old Got The Greenlight, who bounced back from defeat in the South African version of the Derby with a fine victory in the Daily News 2000.

Twist Of Fate, Eyes Wide Open and Miyabi Gold rounded off the top five in the 2019 Durban July, and all three look likely to return for another crack. Soqrat will be Mike De Kock’s only representative, with Sean Tarry looking likely to throw Shango and Tierra Del Fuego into the mix.
