I currently have a fully working, fully jailbroken 6.1.0 iPad 2, which I want to temporarily restore to factory default 6.1.0, thereby keeping my ability to re-jailbreak, so I can watch the Ashes cricket on SkyGo, as it won't run on a jailbroken device.

I have SHSH blobs for 4.3, 4.3.3, 4.3.4, 4.3.5, 5.0.1, 5.1.1, 6.1 (locally), 6.1.3.

Is this something that is still possible on an iPad 2, or should I just be happy it's jailbroken, and leave it be ?

Did you try Xcon? That should make it work when jailbroken.

You cannot restore to any iOS6 other than latest 6.1.3.
