We had some thrilling finishes in last week’s Blue Square Bet Sprint Series and we’re really building up a head of steam with the Grand Final just two weeks away.
Luke Morris returns to Lingfield Park Racecourse tomorrow having had to sit out all but one of the rounds so far through suspension. We rate him 16/1 to defend his top jockey in the series award.
William Carson is our firm 2/1 favourite and Violet Jordan is just 4/9 to be the top trainer after two successes with Frognal helped give her a 10 point lead over David Evans (13/8) in the standings.
Looking at tomorrow and I like NIGHT TRADE in the 2.35pm. She came back from a long lay-off to finish a close second at Wolverhampton last time out. In round three last year she was beaten into third by no more than a neck at 20/1. She won’t be anything like that price this time but, with Morris on board, the mare can exploit a nice mark to win for the first time since July of last year.
RESTLESS BAY has been campaigned at seven furlongs since his January success in round two. A win here would see Conor Dore’s five-year-old scoop enough points to have a nice rest before the Grand Final and that surely must be the trainer’s plan. Hayley Turner takes over from Morris in the saddle and she is just as capable around the Surrey venue.
As ever, bet with Blue Square Bet and we will give you your money back if your horse is second, beaten less than half a length.
