1) ARAGOSTA 16/1

ARAGOSTA put up an eyecatching showing at the official Hollywoodbets Durban July public gallops and the Gr1 SA Derby winner is an intriguing prospect. While a well-beaten 2,20 lengths behind stablemate Safe Passage in the recent Gr1 Daily News 2000, he will be a fitter horse come 2 July. He will enjoy the pole position draw, a handy galloping weight and the value-added services of SA national log-leading rider, Warren Kennedy – provided by Sporting Post
