Apr 9: Johnb’s Racing Tips & Chat


JOHNB landed a 7-2 Aintree winner with Finian’s Oscar on the day One For Arthur became just the second Scottish-trained winner of the Grand National.

The 14-1 shot claimed a thrilling victory under Derek Fox and well done all who landed the winner or a place on the National or any of yesterday’s other races.

It was a great day for Voice of Value who picked the winners of the first three races and must give a mention to the Daily Record’s Garry Owen whose Nap was One for Arthur.

    Morning all,

    It was just under a month to the day that I put up One For Arthur to win the grand national and yesterday he delivered! It was a wonderful ride and a impressive round of jumping. I am delighted for connections and everyone involved in the horse. That win rounded off a profitable grand national meet for myself as I managed to eat into the losses made last weekend (moved from -51 to -12), it’s a funny thing luck. Two bets for me today:

    17.15 Market Rasen – Wemyss Point 6/1 EW

    Wemyss point was a 15 point selection of mine last time out at Musselburgh, but unfortunately the jockey gave him way to much to do as he ran on for second (well clear of the rest). Today he gets the assistance of Adam Nicol in the saddle and looks sure to go close. He has plenty of useful experience on good ground and he can put that to good use agains this field today. The form line of the bumper on the 5th of February is very strong as the 3rd (Amateur) and 4th (Captain Woodie) have gone onto win and in fact Amateur ran a respectable 11th in the Grade 2 bumper on Friday at Aintree. I do think that all of his previous runs need to be uprated as in all three runs he has been help up early on and ran on late, but Musselburgh is a track that greatly favours prominent horses and I have a feeling he will greatly benefit from a change of venue. He looks like a solid each way bet today 2 points each way @ 6/1.

    17.30 Ffos Las – Hear No Evil 8/1 EW

    I had a very strong word for this horse on debut at Wetherby when he rather disappointed in third, but it is too soon to give up on him yet. Hopefully he will be able to put that experience to good use today and put in an improved performance. He is supremely bred and has apparently been working really well at home. The better ground should suit and he looks massively overpriced at 8/1. Last time I put this horse up for 15 points, while I won’t be doing that today he looks worth of 1.5 points each way @ 8/1.

    Other bets:

    As I am confident of big runs from both selections today I am happy to play a 0.50 point each way double at 11/2 & 8/1.

    Many thanks and GL to all

    April: -12.2
    Overall: +163.63

      It was also a mamoth run from my other antepost selection Vieux Lion Rouge who finished just outside the money in 6th.

    Jockey never gave Show and Go a chance. Flew at the finish but just given way to much to do.
