Trainer Comments:

Justin Snaith – A lot of horses are really well in and in saying that Doublemint, Made To Conquer and Magnificent Seven are all really doing well. I could not be happier. I think we have a helluva string for the Vodacom Durban July. They all get every bit of the 2200m, so there are no worries about whether they get the distance or whether they like Greyville. My team are at their best at Greyville. I’m very excited, can’t wait. A little bit of luck with the draws will certainly help and we have to get through the July gallops safely.” (Gold Circle)

Winning Form – Magic Tips Comment:
DOUBLE MINT represents a strong 4-way coupling from the Justin Snaith camp. Stamped by Twice Over, the same sire as reigning Vodacom Durban July champion and stable companion Do It Again and just as striking in appearance. He has had a very smooth prep and pundits may agree, he has yet to be overextended in both local appearances this season. He finished just behind Rainbow Bridge in the first two legs of the Winter Series in the Cape last year, giving the latter 1kg in the Winter Guineas (1600m) for a 1.75 length beating and at level weights in the Winter Classic (1800m) when beaten by 1.50 lengths, before winning the Winter Derby (2400m). He now faces the Eric Sands inmate with a 6.5kg favourable swing and on that alone, he will certainly have his followers. Big race rider Corne Orffer takes the mount this time around and he certainly won’t be disheartened by the gate 12 draw.

Verdict: Not stable elect but in solid recent form. Watch.
