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 2019 and much like his name, we’re expecting the Justin Snaith-trained runner to do it again this July.

2020 Durban July Best Bet – Do It Again @ 5.50


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.

2020 Durban July Best Each Way – Rainbow Bridge @ 5.50


Rainbow Bridge is a five-year-old gelding which has been running good in 2019 and looms as a strong chance.

Eric Sands lines up the son of Ideal World, which was a winner at Kenilworth in the Grade 1 Sun Met two starts back.

He defeated Do It Again on that occasion and that form is going to stack up nicely for this. However, he wasn't able to back that up with a win last start.

Rainbow Bridge is a solid each-way play at the odds and he should provide bettors with good value for the 2019 Durban July.

2020 Durban July Best Roughie – Made To Conquer @ 34.00


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.
