Durban July 2017

The jockeys riding in the 2017 Vodacom Durban July provide comments on their horses in South Africa's biggest race. Read more here.





Grant van NiekerkBlack Arthur is doing very well and I will be giving him a little workout tomorrow (Tuesday). I am quite confident about his winning chance.

Anthony DelpechNightingale has an outside chance.

Aldo DomeyerKrambambuli is a nice horse who stays the trip but unfortunately he has a bad draw. There is always a ‘dark horse’ in the race and I am hoping that he is that.

Piere Strydom – On his best form It’s My Turn has a big chance. In saying that he does have a terrible draw to contend with and I am disappointed that he hasn’t had another run.

Anton Marcus –  Edict Of Nantes is in a good place but this July is a very open race.

MJ ByleveldMaster Sabina has a good draw and is a tough horse. This July could be rough so this will be in his favour. He is looking very well and will be suited to a tough race.

Bernard Fayd’herbeMarinaresco ran below expectations in his last run but he has come on since that effort and I will be working him again on Thursday. He is a small horse carrying a big weight and also against him is the fact that the July can be a pretty rough race. If things go his way I am expecting a big race from him.

Greg CheyneTilbury Fort. I was very happy with his gallop last Thursday at Greyville. I was told not to expect much in his work but he felt in good order to me. I am very excited to be riding a horse for South Africa’s leading trainer and it does give one a lot of confidence. As far as I am concerned all feels good to me and now I must go out and make it happen.

Richard Fourie – I rode Horizon in work on Monday and he gave me a great feel. He has lots of substance and is carrying a very handy weight. I am expecting a big run from him,” said Richard with a lot of confidence.          

S’manga KhumaloAl Sahem. His prep has gone on without a hitch and trainer Tarry has him spot on. My record on him is 100% and he has a great draw of 1. I am going into the race full of confidence and I am very positive of having a great run on him.
