Without Question got the ball rolling at 7:00 a.m at this morning’s Hollywoodbets Durban July gallops, at which time there were still queues for free coffee and sticky buns.

He put in a superb gallop, striding out beautifully under big race rider Richard Fourie.

However, See It Again stole the show later.

He looked every inch the big race favourite as he powered effortlessly down the straight.

Rachel Venniker was aboard and said, “He is fit after his last run and today was just a pipe opener but he is feeling incredible.”

Equine hero Do It Again put in his usual fine July gallop, gliding down the Hollywoodbets Greyville straight in athletic fashion, belying his age (eight years old).

Rascallion also strode out nicely.

Dave The King, as mentioned in another article in this newsletter, showed off his massive stride in no uncertain terms.

Pomp And Power was his usual naughty self, dropping rider Shorty Feni as he was about to set off and the latter did very well to hold on to the rein ensuring the horse did not bolt. Pomp And Power strode out very well in the straight.

Son Of Raj galloped without the blinkers and was looking around. He will be better on race day with the blinkers on.

Pacaya was a touch lazy in his workout but looked in fine fettle.

Silver Darling and Trip Of Fortune did not give much away but did nothing wrong.

The July horses on the Highveld did nothing wrong either.
