Three reasons you need to bet on the 2017 Durban July with SportingBet



The Durban July is the most famous flat race in South Africa and the best ten furlong sprinters on the continent have been gathering at Greyville since 1897, ready to fight for this fabled, lucrative prize. 

Just like other big handicaps in the horse racing world, like the Grand National and the Melbourne Cup, millions of fans around the world will place a bet on this historic contest, before tuning into their televisions or radio sets to cheer on the horse they have backed to claim the Darley July title.

There is a wide variety of sportsbooks you could use to bet on the 2017 renewal of the Darley July. SportingBet sits amongst the market leaders when it comes to South African racing and here are three reasons why you should use SportingBet to place your Darley July wager this year.

South African Specialist

SportingBet was launched in 1998 from their base in South Africa and they always have their finger on the pulse when it comes to latest horse racing news and developments from their home land. 

If any horse pulls out, if there is a late entry into the betting or if there is a huge push in the betting, SportingBet will be the first to know.

Odds and Places

SportingBet were the first bookmakers to open their Darley July market and their odds are extremely competitive. 

When placing an ante-post bet, looking for each-way value is often the most favourable choice. SportingBet are currently offering ¼ odds on four paid places in the Darley July, which will be music to all ante-post backers’ ears.

Specials and Promos

As we draw closer to the big day, SportingBet will be opening various special markets, including jockey, trainer and owner specials, barrier draw specials and even flying dismount special markets. 

SportingBet will also give you your full stakes back as a free bet if your horse is beaten into second in the Darley July and refund your accumulator if just one leg of any five-fold or more lets you down.
