THE Pick 6 pool at Africa’s greatest horseracing event at Greyville this Saturday, 5 July,starts with a carryover of R3 million. TAB estimates that the final total pool for the Greyville extravaganza will be a South African record of about R11 million.
Champion mare Beach Beauty is likely to carry the hopes of 95% of Pick 6 players in the final leg of the bet on Saturday. She’s quoted at 6-10 in the ante-post betting for the Gr1 Garden Province Stakes.
“It’s always difficult to predict, but the Vodacom Durban July is Africa’s biggest betting of the year and I estimate that the final total net pool will be from R10.8 to R11 million,” said Phumelela betting executive Vee Moodley. “We appeal to everybody to take their bets as early as possible,” he added.
To win the Pick 6 you must choose the winners of six consecutive races. Saturday’s pool starts on Race 4, the R500,000 Nokia Gold Vase over 3000m. The race is scheduled to begin at 1.35pm and the Pick 6 pool will close as the runners break from the starting gate.
TAB betting on Saturday’s meeting opened this Monday 30 June.
some good bets garden province stakes 1 lanner falcon 2 beach beauty 3 ham hooker
golden horse shoe 1 afrika burn 2 one fine day 3anjaal
golden slipper kock alboran sea actually de kock will dominate this
july futura rakes chestnut in the fast lane
i think the pick 6 will reach about 8mill on july day too many favourites
hammies hooker or beach beauty
alboran sea de kock
futura or rakes chest nut
Good bets abound certainly, but try as I may I can’t see Lanner Falcon beating Beach Beauty!
Of course strange things happen in horse racing and If she alone gets run over the p6 will pay rockets!
