Apr 1: Johnb’s Racing Tips & Chat


JOHNB ended March on a winning note with his double-stake tip obliging at 5-2.

His other pick could only the manage second place so there was no full house to finish the month but a 3pt profit for the day.

Our man ended March with a 35.69pt loss and is looking to hit the ground running in April with his Saturday selections.

    Master Carpenter (IRE) 6yo chestnut horse
    Breeding: Mastercraftsman (IRE) – Fringe (GB)
    Trainer: B R Milman
    Owner: David Little The Links Partnership

    Sometimes when analysing a race you see or find out things that mean you have to change your mind, my two selections for the Lincoln Handicap both failed to make the cut and I was pretty strong with Bravery as the third choice, I still like Bravery but things have been brought to my attention about Master Carpenter
    I was of the opinion after studying the race that the layoff was enough to go against him, his form is good enough if running up to his best and with Lulu taking off 5lb helps,
    It was brought to my attention that this has been the plan all along and that the break is nothing to worry about,
    His form at Doncaster isn’t too bad as he looks to like the Doncaster type of track,
    My main worry about Master Carpenter is that all the pace is drawn low, some tracks do have a draw bias and some tracks have a false draw bias, sometimes it’s not the course that makes a bias it’s the horses,
    Doncaster is one of the fairest tracks in the country, it’s flat and wide but with the pace drawn low means high horses could have a disadvantage
    Master Carpenter is drawn in stall 19 so I am looking for Highland Colori who is drawn in stall 17 to take the high drawn horses along
    Master Carpenter ran at this meeting last year and although last of four runners he was only beaten 6 lengths off level weights by Belardo

      Well ill be paying for bravery i knew was bad open when chelseas lad got pulled with a name like that was bound to be a winner but if master carpenter wins itll also be a pretty penny not 3 grand but no peanuts if both place wouldnt be a bad day either so fingers crossed bol to you all.

    Don’t usually post but love the site, anyway I do like a trend or two and the Lincoln is one of my favourites as it’s usually Easy to get 22 down to 5 or 6. Anyway strict trends qualifiers are as follows……….

    Zhui feng

    Hit the post and can still win…………

    Steel train
    Eddystone rock
    Instant attraction
    Master carpenter
    Dolphin vista

    To win this race you need a horse that is at least 10lbs well in, on that basis my selections in order of preference are as follows………

    *** 1) zhui feng 18/1 (great early form, lightly raced, officially 4lbs well in already so bit of a hint!’ Also just felt arguably had the best previous form and looks to me like a good old lurker and a great price)

    ** 2) master carpenter 25/1 (also great early form similar to zhui feng and looks to have been tucked away for this, good claimer on board, money coming tonight and johnb’s pick too which I was happy to see)

    * 3) Steel train 28/1 ( O’meara trained, claimer in board, fits nearly all the trends and well worth watching)

    Hope this helps anyone looking for a starting point and feel free to choose one of the other trend qualifiers as I’m sure the winner is in there 👍

    Morning all,

    It was a tiny profit yesterday for myself as Foolaad won easily, that left me 0.80+ for the month of March. It was a very tough month with Cheltenham’s results favoring bookies, thankfully my antepost tip Pacha Du Polder saved my bacon during the festival (22/1 on the Friday morning). It could have been a very profitable month however yet, Warthog and Somehow could both only managed close seconds costing me 30 points. Anyway onto April we go and the start of the flat! I’m kicking off with a number of bets today. Given the competitiveness of the two big handicaps at Donny today I am happy to play 4 horses against the field. Unfortunately I don’t have time for a write up today.

    13.50 (Cammidge) Doncaster:

    • Ride Like The Wind 8/1 – 0.75 points each way (365 1/4 odds)

    Glad you got a winner out of them mate, wish I done the same! I went with zhui feng and master carpenter as my main bets, only had £1 ew on bravery 🤔It’s one thing getting the field down to just a few but I seem to have a knack for then choosing the wrong one 🙈

    • Profile photo of ray_ez
      ray_ez 1 year ago

      I just did a level stake on your 3 and jb’s pick.
      With skybet paying 6 places and the accumulative research that you have both done i was confident of a proffit and im glad it worked out. 👍
      I see you also flagged up bravery Jb. Thats as close to a tip without ‘officially’ being a tip as you can get. Im willing to wager that a good amount of folks would have gone on both.
