Apr 23: Johnb’s Racing Tips & Chat


IT was all about Vicente on Saturday as the eight-year-old won the Scottish Grand National for the second year in a row.

He’s the first back-to-back winner since 1983 and well done all who backed him or picked a winner at Ayr or beyond.

Johnb tipped Vicente to win the Grand National but he fell at the first so will be kicking himself for not giving the horse a second chance. Voice of Value suggested Vicente and tipped 33-1 chance Alvarado each way.

Johnb drew a blank on Saturday and his Sunday tips have now arrived. He is 36.59pts down for April.

      I get the idea of a day off or a rest sometimes.
      It often helps refresh the batteries and is def better than keep hammering away sometimes.
      I think myself after the last two/three weeks remarkable success I need to take a break and will have a pop at two today & be back next Saturday for the big days racing.

    Magnolia ridge 2.10 seeing a lot of money this morn wish I backed it at 8s last night now 5/1. Nb

    Wincanton should just be given to Nicholls already today awful card but winners are winners for him…

    Psychedelic funk 3.20 nap 3/1 from 5/1 looks to have the measure of these and is one to follow this season

    Keane and Foley managed 5 wins yesterday between them, I backed two of their rides but typically came up short, the thin margin between profit and loss means I stand at -7.75pts going into Sunday.

    Navan looks a really tough card today with the jockey/trainer combinations some of the best in Ireland, BOL finding a decent priced winner.

    1415 nav – social butterfly 6/1 1pt win
    1630 win – between the waters 5/1 1pt win
    1640 str – baraza 2/1 1pt win
    1445 nav – dewpoint 20/1 0.5pt ew

    1.1pt Yankee, 5.1pts staked.

    Looking to take on Order of St George today, will be betting closer to the off though.

      Ending the week 9.85pts down overall, with only 1 winner today..
      sadly had a couple winners from my shortlist including viserion and winginit, counts for nothing though. Was correct to avoid OofStG at least, well done winners.

      Been poor from me since points tracking, but nothing to worry about, back 2moro with more thoroughly researched picks assured.

    Morning all,

    Cloudy Dream provided me with one winner yesterday. Today is a No bet day with nothing meeting my criteria. Best of luck to all.

    Many thanks and GL to all

    (Will update my points tomorrow).

    Order Of St George NAP/NB
    short and sweet write up as we all know the class of this horse
    On his last two reappearances he has finished a short head 2nd to Bondai Beach and a 4 1/2 length win, the only worry about today is he has never been asked to run this early in the season before but he is well ahead in class here and no other horse is close to his form last year, an Ascot Gold Cup winner, Irish St Leger 2nd and a Prix De L’Arc De Triomphe 3rd behind Found

    Doonard Prince
    There may be 21 runners but on form there is only one in what is a very poor race that won’t take much winning, especially with Doonard Prince back down to a more favourable distance after his reappearance runout at Dundalk last month, he was never wanted with in that race as he was kept too far off the pace but was the best finisher, it should also be noted that the blinkers are back on today

    I was close to putting this horse up last time as it looked a very weak race but that’s in the past and I didn’t, today she still looks the class in the race as she improved markedly with her reappearance run whether it was the new yard or the tongue strap it certainly worked plus I have also been told by an old bookie friend that connections have gone in with a six figure bet today

      what did you think of Order of st gerorge’s run?

      • Profile photo of Johnb
        Johnb 1 year ago

        I would be surprised if he has broke a sweat today, the two visual points are that the horse looks like he didn’t like the downhill part of the course but I think that’s more down to the jockey, he has then got momentum going on the uphill part where he is gaining but as I said he hasn’t broken a sweat as Seamie Heffernan hasn’t really got stuck into him, all in all though it was a good run for connections but not for punters
