Horizon to sneak it at the post
POST asked race commentator Craig Peters to call the race as he thinks the 2017 Vodacom July should pan out:
THERE is a roar from the crowd as the field is dispatched for the running of the 2017 Vodacom July.
Master Sabina is an early leader as Nightingale shows good toe. Edict Of Nantes is also at the rail, as Brazuca is lengths off the pace.
Tilbury Fort is being niggled at to get a better position. Saratoga Dancer races midfield with Krambambuli and The Conglomerate. Ten Gun Salute is 9 lengths off the pace. With Black Arthur, It’s My Turn and Marinaresco go past the 1 000 mark and Master Sabina continues to lead.
Horizon is starting to make progress around runners, Al Sahem is just off the pace as Saratoga Dancer also starts to make a move. They’re about to be homeward bound and Edict Of Nantes makes a move, Saratoga Dancer runs a big race on the outside and Horizon is also a big threat with Marinaresco finding his best stride.
Over the last 100 metres, it’s between the leading four horses but Horizon is finding that little bit extra and Horizon goes on to score from Edict Of Nantes followed by Saratoga Dancer and Black Arthur.
