JOHNB ended up with just one Sunday tip, losing 2pts on the nap after his NB was a non-runner.
He’s now 6.6pts down for April and was impressed by his Derby antepost tip on Sunday. He says: “Idaho, who I advised last year, ran a good race in today’s Ballysax Stakes at Leopardstown, with heavy ground and his first run this year he was asked by his jockey today and I thought he responded really well.
“I was impressed with his turn of foot as he quickened up really well on ground he did handle but isn’t his favoured ground, Aiden O’Brien won’t have this horse fully tuned up till Derby time if he runs.
“My thoughts are still that Idaho is a Derby winner in the making and he is a well balanced horse which will suit Epsom. I have to mention today’s turn of foot again as it was really impressive on heavy ground but on his favoured good ground he could make a mockery of his Derby rivals as I am really struggling to see anything else that is good enough this year.”
