THE first round of the Blue Square Sprint Series last weekend was split into two divisions and it’s the same again in round two tomorrow. Both of last Saturday’s winners, SPEAK THE TRUTH and Captain Dimitrios are back for more in the second division (2.10pm) and it’s the former who looks to have the best chance of following up.

Jim Boyle’s six-year-old has been in fine form recently and he can notch back-to-back wins. Waabel is a danger as he ran a really promising race to finish third last week from a poor draw in stall 11.

Last year’s winning trainer, David Evans, got off to a flying start on Saturday with Captain Dimitrios and I give an each-way squeak to his NUBAR BOY in the first division (1.35pm). The five-year-old has gone well fresh in the past and he could go well at a big price.

Blue Square are refunding bets in the form of a free bet if your horse is beaten less than a length, regardless of its finishing position. That is a really strong promotion as these races often have blanket finishes.

The free Blue Square Winter Carnival App is now live and can be downloaded from the App store. It contains the exclusive views of leading all-weather jockey Luke Morris and ATR all-weather specialist presenter Simon Mapletoft, as well as all the latest news on the Blue Square Sprint Series.
