Durban Turns On Weather For Tomorrow's Gr1 July

Friday, 5th July 2013

In Jeremy Taylor's iconic South African song, Ag Pleez Deddy, the lyrics about Durban include: "There's spans of sea, and sand and sun, and fish in the aquarium". While racegoers are unlikely to experience either sea, sand or fish at tomorrow's Durban July meeting at Greyville, the forecast is for plenty of sunshine and a pleasant 21 degrees. With Royal Durban Golf Glub in the centre of the racetrack, the July meeting plays host to 7 stakes-races on the 10-race card. The feature events include a quartet of Gr1s headed by the July Handicap which was first held in 1897. Last year's winner Pomodoro will have to shoulder 60kg to go back-to-back against a field that includes Australian-bred 3YO colt Wylie Hall (Redoute's Choice-Beauty Belle, by Double First).
