Luke looks coloured with ‘Blue!’

Tuesday, December 12, 2017

Little Boy Blue attempts to defy a 69-day(s) absence and relatively- superior, Ghepardo, in an eight-runner Novice Stakes over six furlongs of Lingfield polytrack, when Luke Morris rides, which is significant!

Our current champion jockey was aboard last time at Nottingham, when this Hellvelyn gelding marginally improved his time-handicap, achieved about ten weeks before on debut at Bath.

Bill Turner is a dab hand with two-year-olds, he’s trained several useful sprinters. I’ll bet Little Boy Blue was being set for a gamble back in spring-time, that’s usually his modus operandi.

Unless once-raced, David Elsworth- trained Galloway Hills improves considerably 70-rated, Ghepardo, a winner at Brighton, appears to be the main rival to Little Boy Blue but isn’t progressing and seems better over five furlongs.
