Blue Square Bet Winter Carnival

We’RE now just over a week away from the Blue Square Bet Sprint Series Grand Final and tomorrow’s racing will be the last chance for a few horses to earn enough points to make the £17,500 showpiece at Lingfield Park Racecourse.

Looking at the Blue Square Bet Sprint Series action tomorrow, I have to side with TIDAL’S BABY in the first division (2.15pm).

Tony Carroll’s charge was a massive eye-catcher last weekend, when he was slowly into stride before absolutely flying in the final furlong to just fail by a short head. He won his maiden over this course and distance and should be hard to beat.

In the 2.50pm, DANZIGER is a lot less exposed than some of these and although the David Evans-trained horse has a tricky draw in stall 11, he should make a bold bid under leading all-weather jockey Adam Kirby.

The four-year-old was an impressive winner at Lingfield last time over five furlongs and the extra furlong tomorrow shouldn’t cause any problems.

The Sprint Series standings are desperately tight after six rounds with Violet Jordan the leading trainer with 48 points, just two clear of David Evans.

William Carson didn’t pick up any points last week and now leads the jockey’s standings by just one point from Jim Crowley.

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 in all Sprint Series races.
