<br />
Not many punters know Pocket Power or Dancer&rsquo;s Daughter personally, but after their spectacular dead heat in the Vodacom Durban July, both horses have become household names. Even Nat King Cole would have been crooning his way to Clairwood Racecourse to watch these two battle it out in the R500 00 Champions Cup over 1800m.<br />

<p>JACK MILNER<br />
WITH more than R1.4 million already in the kitty to kick-start tonight&rsquo;s Pick 6 at Greyville – and an estimated pool of R3.75 million – any banker would be exceedingly helpful.
