Roy Had Enough’s win in Saturday’s Track And Ball Derby has made barely a ripple in the Vodacom Durban July market. Track And Ball themselves cut the winner from 250-1 to 150-1 but left favourite Hawwaam unchanged on 18-10.
Indeed the firm made no changes to any of the other leading contenders, going 3.85-1 Do It Again, 11-2 Rainbow Bridge, 7-1 Barahin, 16-1 Eyes Wide Open, Twist Of Fate, 22-1 Head Honcho, 25-1 Magnificent Seven, 28-1 and upwards others.
Runner-up Charles has been marked out from 100-1 to 150-1 and most expert opinion is that he is unlikely to make the cut. Brett Crawford said: “Maybe he could run in the Betting World 2200 consolation or I might bring him home – he is still a young horse.”
Declarations for the Johnsson Workwear Garden Province Stakes are tomorrow but Track And Ball already has Oh Susanna favourite at 13-10 and goes 4.2-1 Front And Centre, 13-2 Santa Clara, Snowdance, 17-2 Fresnaye, 12-1 and upwards others.
Majestic Mozart is 2.55-1 favourite for the Winter Derby at Kenilworth on Saturday with Brett Crawford’s East Cape Derby winner St Vladimir on 2.9-1 and Herodotus next on 3.05-1. The unbeaten Captain Of Stealth is odds-on for the Langerman at 0.55-1.
