The biggest and most prestigious race day of the year in South Africa is quickly approaching, as Greyville hosts the Group 1 Durban July Handicap. As expected, BetXchange will offer a wide selection of offers for new and existing customers in the lead-up, and on the famous day of racing.
This year’s Durban July Handicap will be staged on Saturday, 2 July 2022, and will feature the finest horses tackling the 2200 meter distance in front of capacity crowds and millions watching from home. One of the best promotions available to BetXchange customers this year is the Double Your Winnings special.
What Is The Double Your Winnings Special?
The Double Your Winnings special will allow customers to double the amount of money they stand to win on their first stake made on the main Durban July race this year. It is an incredibly interesting way to get involved in the action, as bettors won’t just get paid out on the odds that they wager on, they stand to receive 100% extra on top of their winnings up to the value of R5000-00.
How Do I Get Involved?
All existing customers can get involved in the Double Your Winnings special, but a minimum of R20-00 must be wagered on a straight selection once the final field has been announced. That means, in order to get involved, bets eligible must be placed between 27 June – 2 July 2022. There are also some other important terms and conditions that players must be aware of.
That includes the fact that the maximum winning sum as part of the promotion is R5000. Furthermore, the offer isn’t eligible for bets made on place or Tote win markets. Bettors must make their eligible selection on the fixed win or the straight bet.
Current Durban July Favourites
The BetXchange betting market for the Durban July is already heating up. However, if you’re looking to take advantage of the Double Your Winnings Special, remember that only bets made between 27 June – 2 July 2022 are eligible.
The current favorite for Grade 1 this year is Safe Passage for trainer Mick de Kock. The four-year-old has been in the sensational form already this year, having won the G1 Daily News 2000 from heavy favorite Pomp and Power on his previous start. De Kock will be looking for a fifth win in the race this year, and a first since Igugu in 2011.
Pomp and Power is currently the second choice in betting with BetXchange. Despite finishing third in G2 Guineas and second to Safe Passage on his previous two starts at the track, he still holds a very respectable 45.45% win percentage. Many will be willing to give the G1 Cape Derby another chance to end his baron run at Greyville. Sparkling Water is the other de Kock runner at the top of the betting, as she looks to land a Grade 1 success after finishing second in the G1 Champions Challenge and third in the G1 Princess Charlene Empress Club Stakes.
There’s no better way to get involved in the action for the Durban July this year than with BetXchange and the Double Your Winnings Special.
