Beans forecast a very close Vodacom Durban July

Durban - With just days to go to the 125th running of the Vodacom Durban July, for the punters eagerly making up their minds about which thoroughbred to back in the big race, the traditional beans give very few pointers.

If anything, the beans, planted shortly after the final field of eighteen runners and two reserves was announced, are predicting that this year's race will be one of the closest contests in many years as all the beans seemed to have flourished well in the week since they took root.

Based on the beans the widely fancied Got The Greenlight seems to have a short head lead over the rest of the field, with She's A Keeper poised to cause an upset.

The beans also point to good form for defending champion Belgarion, his stable-mate and double-winner Do It Again and Rascallion.

Under the current lockdown rules betting will be purely online with punters encouraged to use web and telephone based options like TABGold to safely lay their bets for the big race.
