16 Do It Again
No horse in history has as impressive a Vodacom Durban July record as does the Justin Snaith-trained Do It Again. Having won the race in 2018 and 2019, he stormed home last year from a wide draw to finish 3rd behind Belgarion and Got The Greenlight and there is every chance that Do It Again could score his third July triumph in 2021. This year he carries less weight than in the previous two years and stable jockey Richard Fourie has deserted Belgarion to partner Do It Again – as he did when winning in 2019. Richard Fourie is looking for this third straight victory in the VDJ and his legion of fans won’t be betting against that possibility. Do It Again has finished ahead of Rainbow Bridge on every occasion in the VDJ and he is weighted to do so again, albeit that his prep has not been as impressive as the Eric Sands runner.
