Hawwaam has been installed 18-10 favourite by the sponsors to beat dual Vodacom Durban July winner Do It Again and Sun Met hero Rainbow Bridge in the World Sports Betting Green Point Stakes at Kenilworth on Saturday week.

Do It Again is 3-1 second favourite and Rainbow Bridge next on 9-2 in this clash of the titans. One World (15-2) and his Winter Classic conqueror Vardy (9-1) are the only others of the 12-strong entry in single figures.

The betting on the WSB Cape Fillies Guineas on the same card is rather more open with the Glen Kotzen Western Cape Fillies Championship winner Third Runway heading the market at 5-1, one point shorter than Pretty Young Thing who was beaten a length and three-quarters from a bad draw that day. Kelpie, like Pretty Young Thing trained by Brett Crawford for Ridgemont, is also on 6-1 with the Sean Tarry-trained Sidonie a 7-1 chance and the Candice Bass-Robinson runner Roll In The Hay on 17-2.
