Racing 240 to bring punters all the build-up to the July

South Africa’s national horseracing channel, Racing 240, will this week host two live expert panel discussions as part of the build-up to the showpiece 2022 Hollywoodbets Durban July.

Racing 240 will cover tomorrow’s live final fields and Barrier Draw announcement at 11am, which will be analysed by an expert panel hosted by leading international race commentator Alistair Cohen.

Panellists tomorrow will include six-time South African champion Piere Strydom, who at the age of 56 will return from a career-threatening injury and a semi-detached retina in April 2021, to saddle up for this year’s July on Justin Snaith’s 2020 July winner, Belgarion.

Other panellists tomorrow are another veteran jockey in Johnny ‘Johnny G’ Geroudis and Gauteng trainer Shaylen Naidoo.

Racing 240 will from Thursday at 7am provide extensive coverage of the July Gallops at Hollywoodbets Greyville and host a panel with live analysis led by Weighted to Win anchor Clyde Basel.

The Gallops panel will include trainer Adam Azzie, 4Racing tipster and racing analyst Germaine Maharaj and seasoned racing expert James Goodman.

“The Hollywoodbets Durban July is one of the most eagerly anticipated events on the South African racing calendar and Racing 240 will bring punters all the big event build-up from some of the country’s leading experts, culminating in our live coverage of the Hollywoodbets Durban July on Saturday 2 July, courtesy of Gold Circle,” said Stephen Watson, Head of 4Racing.TV.
