Ten Gun Salute (AUS) has been cut from 80-1 to 20-1 for the Vodacom Durban July as a result of his surprise win in the Betting World 1900 at Greyville on Friday night.

Joint-favourite Elusive Silva (only fifth in the 1900) has drifted from 15-2 to 10-1 and Drill Hall winner Marinaresco now disputes favouritism with SA Derby hero Al Sahem on 13-2.
It’s My Turn, third under top weight on Friday, has been cut from 22-1 to 14-1 but stable companion Prince Of Wales (eighth) has been marked out from 33-1 to 100-1. The other big mover is the Brett Crawford-trained Nebula who has been slashed from 75-1 to 18-1 following his win in Friday’s Pinnacle.
Brett Crawford said yesterday: “Nebula is a smart horse and I thought he would win. He now goes for the Cup Trial on June 10 and then the July – hopefully with bottom weight. I was also pleased with Edict Of Nantes (second in the Allowance Plate in his first race since winning the Cape Derby) and he runs next in the Daily News (June 3).”
Last year’s July winner The Conglomerate, only sixth under top weight when starting favourite for the Pinnacle, has been eased from 30-1 to 40-1.
