*Odds correct at time of publishing on 14/07/20

The favourite for the Durban July 2020 is Belagrion. The four-year-old became the favourite after winning in the World Sports Betting 1900. Justin Snaith’s horse went into that Grade Two as the clear favourite, following a streak of three-straight handicap victories. As expected, Belagrion brushed aside the competition to claim glory.

Another of Snaith's horses, the incredible Do It Again, will be going for a hat-trick of Duban July victories. No horse has ever won three editions of the Durban July.

Rainbow Bridge gave Do It Again a tough race in 2019's Durban July and is ranked as second-favourite to win it this year. Rainbow Bridge went on to more disappointment in the Queen’s Plate and the SunMet, but finally got over the line first at the Gold Challenge. Eric Sands’ star will not be keen on more disappointment in Durban this year.

SunMet winner Vardy was pipped by Rainbow Bridge in the Gold Challenge, so there is extra motivation to gain revenge in Durban.

Three-year-old Got The Greenlight won the Daily News 2000 and is considered an outsider for the Durban July 2020.

Twist Of Fate, Eyes Wide Open, and Miyabi Gold finished in the top five of last year's Durban July behind Do It Again and Rainbow Bridge and will be running again this year.

Soqrat is potentially Mike De Kock’s only representative for the race, while Sean Tarry is pinning his hopes on Shango and Tierra Del Fuego.
