Blue Square Bet Winter Carnival

IT WAS GOOD to see our exclusive blogger Luke Morris strike on his very first ride of this year’s Blue Square Bet Sprint Series on Restless Bay last week. That victory saw Morris’ price on being the top jockey in the series come in to 9/2 from 5/1.

Violet Jordan didn’t pick up any points last week but has three runners this week and, with 6/4 favourite David Evans yet to saddle a winner, Jordan is now just 2/1 to scoop the top trainer award.

Tomorrow’s Sprint Series action looks competitive and you can give a large number of these chances. In the first division (2.00pm), Picansort would have been my selection were it not for a poor draw in 10.

Instead, chance GABRIAL’S GIFT to reverse recent form with Khawatim on 4lb better terms for a length defeat.

In the 2.35pm, it might be worth backing GABBIANO each-way. He’s still lightly raced and should strip fitter for his recent reappearance. Welease Bwian ran well last week but has still only ever won one race in 19 career starts.

Remember to bet with Blue Square Bet as we will give you your money back if you finish second, beaten less than half a length in all Blue Square Bet Sprint Series races.
