BLUE SQUARE WINTER CARNIVAL
THE Blue Square Sprint Series has split into two divisions again this week and the first (2.15pm) is typically competitive. Ron Harris continues to fire in plenty of winners and his Night Trade has to be a danger with the promising Darren Egan taking off 7lb.
Valmina ran a cracker at Kempton last time following a lengthy break and he has the plum draw in stall one. Tony Carroll’s yard is flying, but a mark of 68 could prove a shade too high for this five-year-old.
HATTA STREAM was tipped up in this column three weeks ago and he was only just collared on the line. He’s gone up a pound for that, but has won off higher in his career and can take this for the in-form Lydia Pearce stable.
David Evans, the current leading trainer in the Blue Square Sprint Series, holds a strong hand in the second division (3.20pm) with NUBAR BOY and Captain Dimitrios. Preference is for the former, who came with a wet sail to almost beat Diamond Vine a fortnight ago and is nicely drawn in two.
Make sure you bet with the sponsors as they continue to offer the fantastic promotion of refunding bets if you are beaten less than a length. You would have got your money back on both this week’s selections had you backed them last time.
