Jack Milner: Many pundits believed the Vodacom Durban July picture would be a lot clearer after Saturday’s meeting at Greyville with the running of the R2-million Daily News 2000 (Grade 1), the R1-million Woolavington 2000 (Grade 1) and the R250,000 Lonsdale Stirrup Cup (Grade 3) over 2400m.

RABADA AND IT'S MY TURN
Mike Moon: Rabada showed great courage in a driving finish to win the Daily News 2000 at Greyville on Saturday. Jockey Anton Marcus was at his tactical and muscular best to deliver Mike Azzie another Grade 1 trophy in a golden season for the popular Highveld trainer.
Jack Milner: The outcome of Saturday’s R2-million Daily News 2000 could depend on one factor – will Rabada see out 2000m?
Jack Milner: Bela-Bela, Nightingale and Negroamaro finished first, second and third respectively in the Grade 2 Daisy Fillies Guineas at Greyville and they look the three who will fight out the R1 million Woolavington 2000 over 2000m at the same course on Saturday.
Jack Milner: Justin Snaith is confident Bela-Bela will stay 2000m and is the runner to beat in Saturday’s R1-million Woolavington 2000 at Greyville.
Black Arthur, ruling favourite for the Vodacom Durban July, will not take part in Saturday’s R2-million Grade 1 Daily News 2000 at Greyville but trainer Justin Snaith still goes into the event with a strong hand.
