It's been 11 years since Mike De Kock last lifted the Summer Cup. South Africa's top trainer will play an extremely strong hand this year, with reigning Durban July winner, Sparkling Water currently topping the betting with Betway.
The next two names in the betting are also trained by De Kock, with Safe Passage and Aragosta sitting just behind their stablemate. Janse van Vuuren's Puerto Manzano is the only other runners sitting at a price of 10/1 or shorter.
Sean Tarry, who's won four of the last five renewals of the Summer Cup, could be represented by Litigation, Nebraas, Zillzaal and Shango. Corne Spies has entered up William Robertson, with Joe Soma set to run Red Saxon.
Other notable runners include Second Base, who'll be ridden by Gavin Lerena, Juan Paul van der Merwe will ride outsider Astrix, with Randall Simons getting the leg-up on Mike Do Kock's fourth runner, Mk's Pride.
