Sail with Spinnaker


Byline: By Peter Hilton

Punters looking for a value bet in the annual lottery that is the Freephone Stanleybet Lincoln at Doncaster tomorrow would do well to swerve the favourites from the big yards and instead take a look at the Yorkshire-trained Blue Spinnaker.

Mister Monet will have to win the Mitsubishi Diamond Vision Conditions Stakes on Town Moor tomorrow if he is to stay on track to fulfil his shrewd handler's ambitions, and it would be a surprise if he were to be beaten.

Shabernak was a big improver last season and he can get this year's campaign off to a perfect start by winning the Konica East Doncaster Shield over a mile and a half.

Michael Bell's five-year-old was a ridiculously easy winner of the Shergar Cup Stayers at Ascot last August and followed that with a victory on Town Moor when dropped back in trip. …
