It's not often Douglas Whyte finds himself on the third line of Jockey Challenge betting, but that's what makes the Durban Demon an appealing bet.

Whyte's great rival Brett Prebble was a $3.15 favourite with a strong book of seven rides, headed by Ray's Favourite (race one) and Flashing Guy (race five). Prebble will be hard to wear down, but Whyte's six-ride night, capped by short-priced favourite Gamekeepers, can snare him victory. Whyte is usually odds-on, but last night he was a comparably luxurious $5, behind Matthew Chadwick ($4).
