While final declarations for the Vodacom July close at 11am on Monday, quite a few of the primary contenders have already played their cards in terms of committing to a jockey on sahorseracing.com    

Rainbow Bridge – Luke Ferraris, Belgarion – S’manga Khumalo,
Do It Again – Richard Fourie, Crown Towers – Luyolo Mxothwa, Nexus – Craig Zackey,
She’s A Keeper – Warren Kennedy and Tristful – Callan Murray all have riders declared.

In addition Michelle Rix has confirmed that Gavin Lerena will be riding Kommetdieding (at 53kg-yikes!), while it can safely be assumed that Muzi Yeni will partner the favourite Got The Greenlight, and Grant van Niekerk will be on market rival Linebacker.
