6 Rascallion

Coming into the 2021 Vodacom Durban July, Rascallion has often had to play second fiddle to his stable companion Linebacker. Rascallion ran third in the Cape Guineas when Linebacker finished a close second back in December and since then Rascallion was runner-up behind Linebacker in the Gr 1 Cape Derby and the Gr 1 Daily News, both of these races being over 2000m. On form there is no reason to believe that Rascallion can beat Linebacker this time but it could get very close and there is no questioning that Vaughan Marshall holds a very strong hand with his two very talented three year olds. Rascallion will be a popular choice to finish amongst the top four home.
