Headline News Review: Dancer’s Daughter doubtful for July after Challenge win

<p>JACK MILNER<br />
ANY punter who wants to rush out and back Dancer&rsquo;s Daughter in next month&rsquo;s Vodacom Durban July had better wait until the stable confirms she will definitely run. The UK-bred filly would have gained a lot of supporters following her meritorious victory in Saturday&rsquo;s Grade 1 Gold Challenge over 1600m at Clairwood, but trainer Justin Snaith suggested they may well give the 5 July race a miss.<br />

<p>JACK MILNER<br />
WHEN Al on the Run got up on the line to beat St Raphael at Clairwood last time out, many pundits suggested it was an unimpressive win. St Raphael went on to beat Pick Six and Angel Flight in a Conditions Plate, despite being well out at the weights, and that effort put Al on the Run&rsquo;s victory in perspective.<br />

Headline News PREVIEW: Elixir could provide right medicine for tricky topliner

<p>JACK MILNER<br />
MIDWEEK cards at Durbanville are often pretty mundane but tomorrow there is some interesting and competitive racing at the country course. In Race 6, a MR 84 handicap over 1800m, there are a number of runners who could contest the finish. To make matters even more complex, most of the runners perform best at this track and that means very few of the horses can be eliminated from one&rsquo;s calculations.<br />
