The biggest betting day of the year in South Africa will soon be upon us, as the Group 1 Durban July Handicap is staged on Saturday, July 2nd. Once again, Greyville will play host to the iconic race, which will see the horses aged three and older compete over a total distance of one mile.
The handicap race is the most popular betting day of the year in South Africa, with experienced newcomers both looking to make wagers on the prestigious race, which has been run since 1897. If you are looking to double your chances of winning without laying down extra cash BetXchange has a special that can make that possible with their exciting promotion available that you cant afford not to take advantage of.
What Is The Weekend Deposit Bonus Special?
BetXchange will be offering the Weekend Deposit Bonus Special, which will give bettors the opportunity to double the amount that they deposit into their accounts. This promotion will be running on the BetXchange site on the 1st and 2nd July.
How Do I Take Advantage?
The Weekend Deposit Bonus Special being offered by BetXchange can be used by customers in preparation for the Durban July, as customers that deposit funds on either the 1st or 2nd July will be able to take advantage. In order to get involved, players must deposit funds on the dates mentioned above.
Furthermore, all deposits up to 5k will be immediately doubled. Only deposits made on the 1st and 2nd July will be eligible for the promotion, which means that if you deposit before or after the stated dates, the promotion will not be available.
Outsiders Worth Considering
The outstanding offer available at BetXchange means that bettors may be interested in looking at a few of the outsiders in the Durban July markets. Horses at single-digit prices haven’t had the best of luck in the race over the past 14 years, with the shortest-price winner being Bold Silvano in 2010 at 2/1. Since then, we have seen a 20/1 winner in the form of Pomodoro, and two 18/1 winners in the forms of Kommetdieding and The Conglomerate. There is certainly outside value in the betting for the race this year.
Marina could be an interesting selection despite a poor run of form in recent starts. She was the winner of the G3 Victress Stakes at Kenilworth last year, and looks for a strong bid this year after crying out for a longer distance when finishing last over a mile in the Hybrid Stakes last time out. At 25/1 with BetXchange, she could be one that goes well.
Justin Snaith has won three of the previous four renewals of the Durban July, and his outside contender this year comes in the form of Belgarion. The 2020 winner will be looking to join the greats as a two-time winner of the famous race, and he looks to be getting back on course after finishing ninth in the race 12 months ago. His latest start saw him finish second in the Pinnacle Stakes, and it could be hard to discount the experienced seven-year-old at 33/1.
