SECRET WITNESS FOR THE LAMBS

Thursday Jul 28, 2011

The draw for the Blue Square Stewards' Cup has paired the Lambs with a horse named Secret Witness

 

BIG SPENDING FLEETWOOD BAG ‘NASRI'

It's been one of the on-off transfer sagas of the summer but it was far easier for Fleetwood Town to land ‘Nasri' than their Lancashire football counterparts from Manchester. The draw for the Blue Square Stewards' Cup has paired the Cod Army with the Dandy Nicholls trained 5-year-old...

 

Blue Square, the bookmaker which sponsors the three Football Conference divisions, allocate a horse from their prestigious Glorious Goodwood race to every club in the Blue Square Bet Premier, North and South. The horse which wins the valuable six furlong sprint - which takes place at the Sussex track at 3.45 on Saturday (live on Channel 4) - will earn one club a cash windfall on the eve of the new season. Blue Square will give the club that ‘owns' the winner £2000 plus the equivalent of a £100 bet at the Blue Square SP on their runner. Last year Droylsden from the Blue Square Bet North scooped a huge £4200 when Evens And Odds scored by a narrow margin at 22/1 from AFC Wimbledon's Johnny Mudball.

 

Fleetwood's Nasri is currently a 20/1 chance with the sponsors to score on the famous Downs. Hoof It and Mac's Power are the joint-favourites at 7/1. The former, owned by professional golfer Lee Westwood and his agent Chubby Chandler, has been paired with Workington from the Blue Square Bet North. Mac's Power will be running for Blue Square Bet South outfit Havant & Waterlooville who will no doubt have many supporters present at their local track.

 

A random draw was made at Goodwood on Wednesday morning and the top 68 entries in the race were allocated between the clubs. A maximum of 28 runners will go to post on Saturday, but there will be an extra chance to win for any clubs who miss out on the main event. This year, for the first time, a special consolation race will be run on the same day. The bluesquare.com Stewards' Sprint Stakes will go off at 2.05 (also live on Channel 4) and will contain 28 horses which didn't make the cut for the original race. Any club with a horse in the consolation race will win £1000 if their runner is successful, with the extra boost of the equivalent winnings from a £100 bet on that horse at the exclusive Blue Square SP.
