Apr 11: Johnb’s Racing Tips & Chat


JOHNB had signal problems and couldn’t post two of his tips in time on Monday.

The one he did get on was a loser as a Lucinda Russell runner was pulled up – One For Arthur Daley maybe.

April is 9pts down and his Tuesday picks are nice and early.

    Morning all,

    While I sat out yesterday’s racing there were a number of good winners posted! I saw the plug landed a two timer – well done! I also spotted a question regarding my point totals, I started posting here on the 5th of November so that’s when the overall figure started – I will run it for 1 year. Anyway the racing looks much better today and I’ve picked out a handful of small stake bets:

    14.10 Pontefract – Fine Example 9/1 EW (price from Coral – 4 places)

    Fine Example was a previous winner from one of my Newcastle systems back in September. At the end of last year the application of blinkers worked wonders with this horse as he went on to record two on the bounce, before running well at Chelmsford (not sure he liked the surface). He returns to action at the Ponty this afternoon (a track he has ran well at in the past) over 1mile, on breeding the step up in trip should suit and showed no signs of stopping in both his 7f wins last year. Normally I would be off put with such a wide draw at this track but given Fine Example will likely lead he should be able to navigate his way to the front without issue. At a tasty price he looks worth of an investment this afternoon (0.75 points each way @ 9/1 – 4 places).

    15.00 Lingfield – Black Orange 2/1

    Black Orange made a very good impressive when finishing a close third in the second division of the Brocklesby earlier this month. He was ridden up with the pace before hitting the front around 1f out, he was caught by two rivals but finished clear of the remainder in third. If building on the impressive turn of foot he showed that day he should put up a very bold showing today from stall 1 (1.5 points win @ 2/1).

    16.10 Pontefract – Final 4/1 EW & Snoano 14/1 EW (prices from skybet 4 places)

    This competitive Class 2 Handicap always attracts some decent horses and it is the same again this year. Mark Johnston has a very impressive record in this race and I am happy to keep the faith with Final (who I tipped up two weeks ago when he disappointed). I thought this horse benefited from the step up in when winning over a mile and a half at Newcastle last month but on reflection he may have just benefited from the run of the race. He drops back to 10 furlongs today and it is over that tip that most of his best form has come. He will love the ground and still looks competitive off 91 (0.75 points each way @ 4/1). Snoano also looks worth of a small investment, this horse won some decent races last year and will also love the ground (he even finished 4th in this last year at 50/1). I followed him for most of last season and I am hopeful that he can continue to progress this year (0.75 points win @ 14/1).

    19.15 Tipperary – Mydor 5/1 EW

    I’ve backed Mydor a few times this season over the jumps and he is hard to get away from today rated just 65 on the level (rated 128 over hurdles). Everything looks in place for a big run today, he will like the ground, he is proven over the trip, he will be fit and Oisin Orr takes a further 2lbs off his back. He was last seen on the level finishing a close second in a 23 runner handicap at Leopardstown off 64 and I am very hopeful he can go one better this evening and his price is very attractive (1.5 points each way @ 5/1).

    19.45 Tipperary – Val De Ferbet 5/1 EW

    It might be worth taking a small chance on Val De Ferbet in the last race today. This horse has been running well over fences and hurdles this winter and Pat Smullen is an eye catching booking. Based on his runs over the jumps this year he is expected to race handily this evening and hopefully can put his stamina to good use on the front end. He will relish the softer going at looks worthy of a small investment at 5/1 (0.50 points each way @ 5/1).

    Many thanks and GL to all

    April: -10.07
    Overall: +165.76

    Hi guys, going to start posting here after long time reader, just wanted to say regarding points tracking, it only helps the punter and for me has no negative implications on the thread whatsoever.


    400 Ling – Turnbury 4/1
    520 Ex – Regal Gait 3/1
    645 Tip – Mostawfee 9/1

    Eagle Creek NAP/NB
    The selection has 3 1/2 lengths to find with Mathix from when they met last October but Mathix that day had everything go his way, he was always in a good position just in behind the winner and always traveled well in what was his second run, whereas Eagle Creek on debut for a Simon Crisford yard that see their horses come on for their debut, the horse never really settled and was up with the pace throughput before being given a hands and heels ride in the last furlong after his chance had gone,
    The surface will suit today looking at the breeding

    Just a simple case of bookies overreacting to certain trainers who have their horses running well, the Godolphin runner won what was a pretty poor race and his form could be anything, Tawaafoq hasn’t done a great deal in three runs but has shown glimpses of potential and again the move to this surface should be in his favour,
    He has been gelded and has a hood on today to help him settle so he has plenty of improvement in him and the form of his three defeats look just as good as the win for Team Meeting, 13/2 was far too big a price and has since been backed into 7/2 which is probably more to do with the fact a certain Mr Taylor has also gone with Tawaafoq

    Brian Ryan
    Trainer Robyn Brisland has a good record on the all weather with an A/E of 1.19 meaning backing horses from this yard is very profitable
    Black Orange is probably the right favourite but that’s only because he has had a run, it’s a weak winnable race for Brian Ryan who can hopefully break well today on debut and the money for my selections is a good sign for a horse I see with the breeding being better than today’s rivals and again punters have snapped up the value in the race with the selection the only horse seeing money

    Well just recovered from a great weekend at Aintree.
    Time to get back to the bread and butter,and the first time I’ve been able to read for a couple of days lol.
    Im going to play a couple ew in the JohnB nap/NB race.
    Both horses have run really well but found bits of trouble at the wrong time when coming to challenge.
    Entangling cost 380,000 was very unlucky last time out and at 16/1 I have to play this one ew.
    The other one is Arnason 8/1 again unlucky,and I will put all 3 in rev forecasts and tri casts.
    Not read any other form yet so will just play this for now.
    Good luck with all your bets today.
