Aug 2: Johnb’s Racing Tips & Chat


JOHNB made a flying start to the month yesterday with a cracking 14.06pt profit.

He’s hoping to keep the momentum going on Tuesday and is going for two in a row with his double-stake Naps.

Blue Point 14-1 racebets

Johnb says: “I have already advised Churchill for next year’s 2000 Guineas & Derby – he has been really impressive this season and my view is he will get even better next year.

“Blue Point on the other hand is harder to call for how he will progress next year. If he trains on then in my view it’s a straight fight between Blue Point & Churchill but in the Derby Churchill is the only horse for me – he gives me the same excitement as Golden Horn did.

“But to answer my question earlier the most impressive horse I have seen this year is BLUE POINT with Churchill and Annie Power a close second and third.”

    Well done johnb. Always nice to start the month with profit.

    Not so good from myself but we keep trying.
    Ive focused my attentions on just the 2 races both at cork.

    7.25 FLIGHT RISK 7/1 EW
    I napped the fav lto and he duly obliged. That was over 1m and he stayed on strongly so the drop back to 7f may not be ideal as hes taking a step up in class and has much stiffer opposition today.
    STRUTHAN is in good form and is a threat but he carries a penalty for winning lto and has to give the selection 3lbs. FLIGHT RISK has also beaten Struthan on 3 of the 4 occasions they have met, most recently over 7f off level weights. The only time Struthan was ahead was on heavy ground over 1m.
    Another to consider is Brendan Bracken whose form at the track reads 211 and at 12/1 could be good ew value but hes not been in the best of form of late.
    The fav could prove to be a good thing but at the prices is FLIGHT RISK for me.

    8.25 HARLEQUEEN 13/8 NAP
    I see it has shortened while i write this and i think she will take all the beating.
    Mick Channon sends her over having already beaten Somehow by 4 1/2l
    Weld has won this race for 3 of the past 4 years and SHAMREEN could be a bigger threat but she was beaten 4l by Seventh Heaven who didnt do the form any favours by trailing in 10/11 in the Irish Oaks. So HARLEQUEEN looks the one to be on….hopefully !!

    Best of luck to all

    Hi everyone

    I have a question ,

    Is it possible to find out a jockeys weight before a race ?

    The reason I ask is because a couple of weeks ago a friend told me about a jockey that has had to loose a lot of weight to ride a certain horse and his low weight means the combination of him and horse gives him a better than usual chance of winning. And of course the horse won with ease .

    I asked my friend after the race how he knew about this and he said he read it in a article 4-5 days before the horse raced.

    I tryed to research this myself but could not find any information on a jockeys race day weight . I searched Sites like atr,rp,sport life etc and Google search but could not find anything.

    Any help would be helpful . Thankyou

      Im no expert but my understanding is all jockeys weigh very similar amounts im sure i read an article sometime back saying the horses can have no more then 55kg on there back again dont take that has gosbel, if the jockey has had to loose weight fast and i knew about it id unlikley back the horse anyway stripping weight fast is not healthy and racing a horse must be trying on the body see some of these jockys almost having there arms pulled out at times lol

      There aren’t any sites that give you a jockeys weight because they are different everyday but it doesn’t matter anyway because horses have to carry a certain weight so they have weights in their saddle
      Nobody oncourse knows a jockeys weight because they get weighed with all their gear including saddle

      • Profile photo of Johnb
        Johnb 10 months ago

        55kg is only 8.66 stone and you will get some horses carrying over 75kg

    A total of 19mm of rain overnight, causing the going to change from good to firm to soft, good to soft in places, is the reason behind all 18 non-runners.
    Clerk of the course Jeremy Martin said: “We were predicted 8-12mm but we got 19mm so it has had an impact. It’s taken it pretty well. I’m calling the majority soft. I might be being a bit hard on myself, but it’s definitely going to ride on the slow side.
    “It had been left well alone for the last five days and had got pretty quick by yesterday afternoon because I knew the rain was coming, But 19mm is a lot of rain to get overnight before racing.”
