Got The Greenlight has been solid at the top of the Durban July betting for the majority of the build-up. Jockey, Muzi Yeni is in spectacular form and trainer, Joey Soma said in the build-up that he couldn't have the favourite in better shape.

Yet, as we draw closer to today's main event, Got The Greenlight looks weak in the market, and it could be LINEBACKER who enters the stalls at Greyville as the favourite come 2:00pm.

Vaughan Marshall's three-year-old returns to Greyville on the back of an impressive victory in the Daily News 2000 back in May. He's been the most impressive three-year-old in South Africa this season and, being of the Classic generation, he'll be getting weight from the older horses behind him in the betting.

Linebacker was a 7/2 shot yesterday, with Got The Greenlight the 5/2 favourite. However, that has now changed, as both Got The Greenlight and Linebacker can be found at 10/3 with bet.co.za.

Rainbow Bridge and Do It Again has drifted out from 6s to 13/2, with Rascallion a 17/2 chance. Defending champion, Belgarion is a 12/1 outsider this time around, with Kommetdieding also drifting out to 14/1.
