AUG 26: JOHNB’S RACING TIPS AND CHAT

RacingTips_WH

IT was two points lost for Johnb on Tuesday as his joint nap and NB could only manage third place at soggy Brighton.

His August profit is now 33.96pts and he’s hoping to boost it further with his double-stake Wednesday selection.

    Timeform comments:

    Dark Crystal (5 out of 5 stars) – In top form of late, winning last 2 of 3 starts, including over C&D last month. Latest win at Ayr has already received a boost and should go well again.

    Race commentary: DARK CRYSTAL arrives at the top of her game and should get the race run to suit with front-runners Sophisticated Heir and Ralphy Boy in the field, so she can follow up her Ayr success.

    (sorry for the long post) these are my thoughts of who to consider today; please don’t see this as me tipping every horse on the list, but it may help others with their decisions:

    14:00 Musselburgh Mixology 7.0, 4th Fav all 2 year olds, good ground
    14:10 Catterick Harmonic Wave 3.75 2nd fav Baby Ballerina is close fav but ive never heard of the jockey
    14:20 Lingfield Shufoog 4.5 2nd Fav great jockey/trainer partnership, horse on its debut, 2nd fav behind Peru (Harry Bentley/ Hugo Palmer)
    14:30 Musselburgh Bahamian Desert 3.25 Fav recent form 221212 C1
    14:50 Lingfield Hajeer 2.75 Fav came 3rd last time against stronger, powerful in last furlong, clear favourite
    15:30 Musselburgh Wor Lass 3.25 Fav has gone up from 2.75, recent form 431111, going for 5th win in a row
    15:50 Lingfield Blue Chip 2.37 Fav form 343, only 5 runners. Dettori’s only ride of the day, closest rival is All For The Best Luke Morris/ Sir Mark Prescott Bt @ 3.0.
    16:00 Musselburgh Dark Crystal 4.5 Fav horse is in great form, currently best apprentice jockey
    16:05 Bellewstown Ample Sufficiency 2.5 Fav D K Weld is a great trainer, horse came 3rd last time on debut, Smullen is a good jockey, closest horse it Mint Chai @ 3.25
    16:10 Catterick Pacos Sunshine 8.0 3rd Fav first and second fav are priced 5.0 and 5.5. soft ground may suit this horse, previous form 20-5868 all on good ground
    16:20 Lingfield Kachou 2.75 Fav form 66431 the 1st place was the same jockey at chelmsford on 18th August
    16:25 Bath Pharaoh 7.0 3rd Fav Jockey 2nd best apprentice only two hannon horses racing today, both in this race, other one is Ice Bond @ 15.0. Pharoah will be challengins Shine Likeadiamond and Comedy Night
    16:30 Musselburgh Aleksandar 3.75 Fav form 864422 C1 – 4ths were over 2m, last two 2nds were over 1.6 and 1.7m, better jockey this time out
    16:35 Bellewstown Valac 2.25 Fav same as above, Valac recent form 2239, all been with Smullen, 9th place was at Galway on Good to Soft
    16:40 Catterick Triple Dip 7.0, 4th Fav form 321503, soft ground, 6/1, 4 horses in race, no jockeys to fear but Plane Song is trained by Sir Michael Stoute
    17:15 Catterick Sir Geoffrey 11 4th Fav EW bet? first time ride for de sousa, previous form 436043 C1 D10 CD1 – must have a good each way chance, 3 places
    18:05 Bath Rock Lobster 2.25 Fav 2-55541 much improved with cheek pieces, was pulled from race 24/08 so wouldn’t have run otherwise
    18:15 Bellewstown Sugar Mill 4.33, 2nd Fav hasn’t run for 129 days… bit of a chance
    18:55 Kempton Mirror City 1.9 Fav short price but great combination jockey/trainer, clear favourite, came 3rd last time on its debut with Kevin Stott as Jockey
    19:25 Kempton Flying Hammer 2.37 Fav 6 horses running, Hammer is clear fav, I don’t know much about the other jockeys or trainers
    19:45 Bellewstown Manalapan 2.62 Fav Smullen as jockey again for Weld, Weld seems to like to win the last race of the evening at Irish courses
    20:25 Kempton Emirates Skywards 7.0, 4th Fav trainer and jockey both doing well

    Good Luck today all!

  11. The rat 1 year ago

    Bath’s racecourse is the highest flat course above sea level in Britain and its built on chalky ground….the going is hardly ever anything else other than good

    I think Bunce can win the 3.00 at Musselburgh. Due to blow hot again and not running badly.

  21. Postman 1 year ago

    Sadly my Banker went the same way as the stock market last night.

    Moving on…

    3:30 Musselburgh – La Bacouetteuse @ 5/1 (each way)
    The fav has to bonce sometime soon, maybe that is why the same trainer is also running my selection, who is also the only CD winner in the field.

    6:05 Bath – Thames Knight @ 5/2 (NB)
    Won over CD last time out and I am taking that form to be better than the Fav who won LTO on the AW at Chelmsford.

    8:25 Kempton – Cloud Seven @ 3/1 (NAP)
    Again I am sticking with proven form over course & distance, the selection has won twice at Kempton this season.

    Nice1 postman. Thank you

  62. Rookie 1 year ago

    Im not sure what happened with rock on bellinski – it was really well backed and finished 3rd at 11/4!?half a length behind the winner.and im not aware of any non runners.

    Still i took the value last night when it was 12s!!

  63. Trickytjm 1 year ago

    Rookie – not given a great ride by SDS…dropped out the back, finished like a train but too late to get up. I was on it too :-(

  64. Rookie 1 year ago

    And omotesando won!

  65. Rookie 1 year ago

    In defence of de niro wasnt it boz or bus stop that said de niro shouldnt keep a points tally? That it was best left to the ‘pro tipsters’?

    So he leaves it off his posts and still gets moaned at? He cant win. No pun intended.

    • boz 1 year ago

      rookie the whole point he started leaving it off when he was losing yet reminded us 5 times a day when he was winning you call that fair

      • boz 1 year ago

        for me john keeps points as he is the only pro tipster on the site

        but anyone else starting a points system has to be honest win or lose that is only fair

        Mr Fixit 1 year ago

        boz, let’s just keep it to tips. The only person who needs to worry about points is Johnb.

  66. Rookie 1 year ago

    Maymyo 7/2 NB hills

  68. Dariusz 1 year ago

    Timeform comments:

    Spring Offensive (4 out of 5 stars): Showed plenty of ability as a juvenile and solid effort when runner-up in 1m Musselburgh handicap on return. Some creditable efforts in defeat since, close third at Pontefract latest.
    Race commentary: RODRIGO DE TORRES is 3 from 3 for Garry Moss and the manner of his latest win suggests he can complete the 4-timer. Spring Offensive and Green Howard head the dangers.

    Maymyo (5 out of 5 stars): 9/1 and tongue strap on for 1st time, career best when winning 12-runner handicap at Chepstow (6.1f, good to firm) 58 days ago. Makes tapeta debut. Has good chance on form.
    Race commentary: MAYMYO looked as good as ever when scoring at Chepstow 2 months ago and is a big player off only 3 lb higher mark. In-form Reginald Claude is feared most ahead of Boris Grigoriev.

    Faintly (4 out of 5 stars): Hooded for 1st time, first run since leaving Amanda Perrett when sixth of 9 in handicap at Chelmsford City (8f, 50/1) 23 days ago. Makes tapeta debut.
    Race commentary: MO HENRY goes well around here and ran well in a decent Haydock handicap last time, so he makes appeal returned to this surface in a competitive heat. Faintly wasn’t given a hard time on debut for Simon Crisford in a better race than this, and it would be folly to ignore him, especially if strong in the market. Gothic Empire is another to note.

  69. Alanm 1 year ago
