If you have ever been to the Summer Cup, you will know why people often call it ‘The most glamorous Horse racing event in Africa’. It does not get any bigger or better than this.

The iconic annual horse race is a staple of the South African horse racing sporting calendar.

The ultimate test of stamina and staying power, the WSB Summer Cup is raced over 1600 metres.


The competitive landscape has changed considerably in South Africa in recent times, leaving the Summer Cup as one of few authentic horse races. The Summer Cup field is made up of South Africa’s best-staying horses fighting it out for the glory of being champion.

Summer Cup Tips 2020

The thing most people are craving, the Summer Cup tips! Well we are still a few days away, but betting has already heated up


I have listed a few horses I believe have a strong winning chance this Saturday!


Tip #1:

Race 3 – 1600m Maiden Plate - CASTLE CORNER – Despite the mixed bag of a field, I’m siding with the likely favourite based on exposed form. Stuart Pettigrew has a solid crop at the moment, and with a little more luck, this selection may have already broken through the maidens.


Tip #2:

Race 6 – Dingaans (Grade 2) - MOUNT PLEASANT – This Aussie bred machine is currently rated 127 as a 3-year-old, which is mind-blowing. Having just won his debut, the next two races are what really put him on the map.


Tip #3:

Race 7 – Summer Cup (Grade 1) - PACK LEADER – It’s of the common opinion that Summer Pudding has it all to do; a horrendous draw and a weakish field means she’ll carry a hefty 59kgs. Pack Leader has had close to perfect prep for this, coming off a long layout to gradually build up race fitness. Having not won beyond 1600m will be his biggest challenge, but with experience in other Grade 1s of similar distance, means this isn’t his first try at it.

Tip #4:

Race 9 – 3200m Handicap - IMPERIAL RUBY – This is a tentative selection in long-distance races that are notoriously tricky to predict. For me, Craig Zackey continues to improve as a jockey, and not so long ago I would not have had him in mind to contest this one. He gets his fourth ride on the selection and has a solid strike rate to date, never finishing outside the top 5, winning once. 


We at Punters Paradise SA wish to thank World Sports Betting especially Ryno Du Plessis and his exceptional marketing team for their amazing work they have put in at making World Sports Betting the leading bookmaker in South Africa and allowing us to part of their advertising affiliates.

This Saturday should provide for a scintillating day of racing.

Cheers Guys, keep Safe out there and have fun
