GM – 11th July
The Sunderland Festival continues apace this evening.
We have no ante post interest in the Grand Prix but still have King Elvis & Bubbly Bluebird batting for us in the Classic. Droopys Expert is our biggest nemesis to landing the ante post money.
Two other competitions start this evening with The Puppy Plate and Festival Flyer both having short price favourites in Droopys Trapper and Kilmore Lemon.
Now the difficult task of sorting out a bet or two for tonight.
Lightfoot King had the beating of Donation last week but threw it away when losing his focus on the run in. I think he can make amends tonight, he’s capable of a better start as well and may even lead up on the rails.
Now Bubbly Bluebird impressed me last week when winning his heat and he loves Sunderland.
He’s the answer in a very good semi final where who leads round the first bend will win.
I think he’s got the best early in the race he’s crucially drawn inside kennel mate Bubbly Turbo and he can keep pulling to fend off King Turbo.
Tonight’s Bets :-
Sunderland 6.48 Lightfoot King 1.5 points win @ 9/4 Power & Betfair
Sunderland 7.52 Bubbly Bluebird 1.5 points win @ 2/1 Ladbrokes & Coral
