Renowned psychic picks her favourites

2014-07-05 00:00

RENOWNED Durban numerologist and psychic medium Priscilla has ­offered enthusiastic punters a glimpse into the 16 runners for the Vodacom Durban July, combining her intuition and a variety of talents to delve into the form of the runners and the relationships they have with their jockeys.

“Let’s be clear, I don’t bet and I don’t follow horseracing,” said Priscilla, who has established herself as one of the top numerologists, tarot card readers and psychic mediums in the country. “Horseracing is very unpredictable, but we can get a good idea of the personalities of both the horses and the jockeys.”

Priscilla uses the dates of birth of both the thoroughbreds and the jockeys to garner her insight into their broader personalities, and the phases in their lives on raceday, Saturday, July 5.

She says this year may well be more prone to upsets, as the number seven is strongly apparent in the date of the race. “The Vodacom Durban July is ­always held in July, which is the seventh month, but this year is 2014, the ­numbers of which add up to seven as well, which may lend itself to mishaps and upsets”.

Priscilla first reads both the rider and horse individually, and then merges their numerology to determine their compatibility as a combination. Looking purely at the numerology correlation between the runners and the date July 5, Priscilla saw the numbers 1 (King of Pain), 4 (Whiteline Fever), 5 (Wylie Hall), 12, (Halve the Deficit), 14 (Captain America) and 16 (Futura) set up to enjoy a good race, with 8 (Cherry On The Top) poised for an upset finish.

How renowned Psychic Priscilla read the field and their jockeys:

KING OF PAIN - Bernard Fayd’Herbe

A horse with an attitude, perhaps injury prone, but likes to be at the front. Bernard is the kind of jockey who brings out the best in a horse. Could be in the money. A top 5 chance.

CAPETOWN NOIR - Karl Neisius

A star horse who loves racing but is somewhat unpredictable, and easily distracted. Karl is currently in a very good year in his life, and can attain high levels of achievement. There is a real affection between jockey and horse.

WYLIE HALL (AUS) - MJ Byleveld

Right now he is nervous and unpredictable. MJ, his jockey, has good gut instinct, will encourage the horse to work well with him, and he is a natural leader. Might just be an upset in the making here.

PUNTA ARENAS - Stuart Randolph

Some good chemistry here! Punta Arenas is bossy but childlike. However, he has the right jockey with him as Stuart builds great trust with him.

CHERRY ON THE TOP - Weichong Marwing

She is unpredictable, and there doesn’t seem to be any natural chemistry with the ambitious Weichong.

LEGISLATE - Richard Fourie

A thoroughbred born to be in the spotlight! Cautious by nature and a little prone to injury, he is a nervous sort. Similarly Richard is destined to be a star, and is currently in a very good year in his life.


A really hard-working and focused thoroughbred! Kevin is in a year of positive change, and will enjoy success if he stays focused.

RAKE’S CHESTNUT - Anton Marcus

A beautiful horse, whose flaw might be that he cares too much about the other horses around him! Anton is shrewd, a strategist, a visionary and someone who knows how to attract success and wealth.

HALVE THE DEFICIT - Pierre Strydom

A skittish and unpredictable horse. Pierre is in a good space right now, enjoying a good year, and these two work well as a combination.


He was born to run! Sean is in a good year and is a hard-worker and a money-maker. They genuinely like each other.
