2020 Vodacom Durban July Betting Tips

The 2020 Durban July promises to be another high-quality feature at Greyville and it’s never too early to sort through the form.

Do It Again was too good for his rivals in 2018 and much like his name, we’re expecting the Justin Snaith-trained runner to do it again this July.

Durban July Favourite Tips

Do It Again

The four-year-old was the victor in the 2018 Durban July and although repeat winners are hard to come by in South Africa’s biggest race, we’re confident he can show up again.
Justin Snaith lines up the son of Twice Over, which scored at odds of 9.00 in 2018 and will likely start shorter in the market this time around.

Punters were able to get good odds for the talented type, given that he had previously run as the 2.35 favourite when running fourth in the Grade 1 Daily News 2000 behind Surcharge.

He should be better prepared for the 2019 edition and he could run away with another Durban July win.

Durban July Outsider Tips

2020 Durban July Best Each Way – Twist of Fate - 13.00 @ Sportingbet SA

We weren't overly happy when Twist of Fate secured barrier 17 earlier in the week, but he still has the class to overcome that.

The four-year-old was a quality winner two back at Greyville and his most recent run was a second-place finish behind 2.37 favourite Hawwaam.

There's every chance he can turn the tables and given the price difference with Durban July bookmakers, we'll take the value on offer.

2020 Durban July Best Roughie – Made To Conquer - 33.00 @ Sportingbet SA

Made to Conquer ran second in the 2018 Durban July before backing that up with a fifth in the Elan Gold Cup behind It’s My Turn.

That grade form is going to stack up nicely for 2019 and bookmakers should be offering each way odds for the Snaith-trained runner, which ran as a 8.50 chance last season.

It’s tough to rule out any runner from this stable and Made to Conquer looks a natural selection for punters. 

Durban July Each Way Tips

Betting on the Durban July is the most popular of any SA horse race and we have tips for the July feature.

Held at Greyville, the Durban July is the most prestigious race of the year and it helps to know which South African runners to back. Form is important for the Durban July and we have found the best runners for the upcoming running.

Below are our best SA horse racing tips for the Durban July 2019, which will see another quality field of middle-distance stars.

Tilbury Fort - 21.00 @ Sunbet

The chances of Tilbury Fort winning significantly increased when he was awarded the inside draw for the 2019 Durban July Handicap.

He's a five-year-old which has three wins from 11 starts and although his recent form coming into this isn't good, he can turn that around.

He was able to finish eighth in this race last year and given his experience, we're expecting an improved performance.

Worth the risk at his current odds.

Durban July Multiple Bet Tips

Zilzaal - 26.00 @ Sunbet

Four-year-old colt Zilzaal could provide an upset and his recent form has been solid.

He finished fourth behind Hawwaam last month and despite not owning any recent winning form, he has only just been behind some talented types.

Sean Tarry lines up the talented son of Silvano, which should be able to see out the distance and come with a big late run down the outside.

There are certainly worse chances at the odds.
