Boxing Day: Johnb’s Racing Tips and Chat

Racing_WilliamHill

THE countdown is on to the Boxing Day action and Johnb has posted a total of 9pts worth of tips.

He’s posted a write-up on the King George VI Chase and strongly fancies Silviniaco Conti while Ttebobb is a confident pick in the Racing Post Novice Chase.

December is a  12.21pts loss but is hoping to wipe it out with a festive cracker.

Johnb’s Boxing Day Tips

Racing Post Novice Chase
Leopardstown 2.55
Ttebbob 9-2 NAP/NB Paddy Power (double stake)

Kempton 3.10
Silviniaco Conti 8-1 William Hill

0.5pt e/w double
Ttebbob & Silviniaco Conti 48.5-1 Paddy Power

Wincanton 1:05
Pure Poteen 11-2 NAP/NB paddy power (double stake)

Double
Pure Poteen & Ttebbob 31.5-1 paddy power

Johnb says: “There is no UK racing until Boxing Day but I’m advising you punt Ttebbob on Wednesday and Thursday. Ttebbob runs on Boxing Day and the fact we will have 4 points on him shows how much I fancy this horse and have tipped him now to guarantee a price.

“I have now advised nine points altogether but that’s split over four days of tips, Wednesday to Saturday. I have posted reasoning for Ttebbob below. I am just as excited about this horse as I am about Thistlecrack.”

Antepost Tip

2016 Arkle
Ttebbob 20-1 Skybet, Betfred

Ttebbob (NAP/NB)
Johnb says: “I have been asked on here what I think I am better at, jumps or flat. People have their own opinions and I would say flat racing but what people should take note from me is my ability to spot talent from an early stage of a horse’s career.
This comes from watching races and being able to see what others can’t. Antepost tips like Taghrooda 33-1 for  the2014 Oaks, Golden Horn 33-1 for the 2015 Derby. I even mentioned Gleneagles at 25-1 for this year’s 2000 Guineas although I didn’t advise the bet.

Thistlecrack 20-1 for the 2016 World Hurdle, he hasn’t won yet but I think everyone now sees what I saw earlier and he is now 11-4.

My latest up and coming talent is Ttebbob who I have advised as a double stake for Wednesday and Thursday so that’s four points which after two years on here is the first time I have done that.

Douvan, the 4-9 favourite, has shown what a great horse he is over hurdles and his chasing debutant Navan was impressive even if it wasn’t a strong race but was never off the bridle.

His problem that I see is he gets too close to his fences which means he isn’t jumping them as quick but he makes up for that between the fences on the flat.

On to Ttebbob, I have been ultra impressed with this horse in his two Chase races. I have mentioned before about certain horses that are outstanding jumpers but believe me when I say none of them are close to Ttebob.

Ttebbob is by far a quicker and better jumper than Douvan, he springs away from the fence when he lands and he is quick between the fences.

This horse has such a high cruising speed it’s scary. When horses win on the bridle it’s hard to judge how good it is which is why times are important.

Douvan & Ttebbob both ran at Navan last time out over the same distance. Both horses won on the bridle, Douvan won by 9.5 lengths while Ttebbob won by 41 lengths.

That doesn’t tell us a lot but looking at the times – Ttebbob was 2.9 seconds quicker than Douvan. Now that would be OK but we all know you get different ground conditions on the turf.

If I was to tell you Douvan ran on soft ground and Ttebbob ran on soft to heavy ground then that 2.9 seconds is now massive.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Sizing John got the better of Douvan for second but in my eyes there is only one winner.

      Also meant to say because Ttebbob is such a good jumper I hope the jockey Robbie Power sticks to what the horse is good at and that’s jumping from the front and to take advantage of Douvan being slower over his fences,
      I hope Douvan tries to take Ttebbob on for the lead as Ttebbob will just jump him into the ground,
      If Ttebbob is left to make the pace then Robbie Power has to make this a true test and kick on.

    That was Douvans first and only run over fences so far whilst it was Ttebbobs 2nd run so i dont think its fair to compare times as Douvan will surely have learnt loads after that first run. I take everything on board what you say about Ttebbobs jumping and yes he was impressive but Douvan was rated 20lbs superior over hurdles and if his jumping improves as im sure it will as he has the best trainer in the business then for me there can only be one winner.
    If im wrong and Ttebbob wins then fair play to you but no way would i be backing against Douvan.
    Just my thoughts but wish you the best of luck.

    • Profile photo of Johnb

      Some horses end up a lot better over fences than they were over hurdles and the other way round,
      Ttebbob is by far a better chaser than hurdler so I wouldn’t read too much into hurdle ratings,

      On the point it was Douvan’s first chase run, yes that’s right but I would say Ttebbob’s first chase run was better,
      Ttebbob ran at Thurles which is a very stiff track which is undulating compared to Navan which isn’t too bad apart from an uphill finish but Thurles is a more demanding course
      Anyway Ttebbob at Thurles ran over a furlong longer on worse ground, soft to heavy again,
      Ttebbob won on the bridle again and was 3.50 seconds slower than Douvan which I say is still better than Douvan,

      Different opinions are good but I still say if Robbie Power goes out and makes this a proper stamina test then Douvan won’t live with Ttebbob’s jumping

    Ttebbob beat 2 average opponents last time in what amounted to a training exercise and was getting 6 pound off the 2nd Lord scoundrel who re-opposes this weekend at odds of 40-1, says everything about that opponent.

    He had only one credible opponent 1st time over fences, moyle park who pulled up shortly after hitting the 1st, the rest were rated 131 and under.

    His form this festive time of year is shocking
    Dec 26 2013 12th of 15 beaten 19 lengths in a bumper
    Dec 28 2014 18th of 21 beaten 28 lengths in a handicap hurdle with top jock Geraghty on board.
    Both races at leopardstown, his only 2 runs at this course

    I think John thinks lightning will strike twice with vatour losing at 1-4 in last year’s race, but Ttebbob finished 27 lengths behind vatour in Dec 2013.

    I really struggle to see how he can be so confidentially tipped to beat an unbeaten horse of douvan’s standing personally, but after Faugheen losing who knows ?

  7. Profile photo of Johnb
    Johnb 12 months ago

    None of the horses in Ttebbob’s debut had a chase rating, but I am not saying what Ttebbob beat I am on about the times that were quite special especially when you take into account Ttebbob was being eased down nearly 3 fences out.
    The Leopardstown runs & runs this time of year are also not worth looking at because as I have said this horse is a totally different animal over fences.

    Think everyone is forgetting that I can spot these top class horses before anyone else does, that’s why the antepost prices are big, every time I come up with one it gets questioned, I will be wrong sometimes but my Antepost profits are so far Infront that being wrong sometimes isn’t a problem,

    I was going to say this earlier but decided against it, but I will now

    It’s about a win however it comes about and by whatever distance, but the truth is I will be disappointed if Ttebbob can’t win this race by 6 lengths
    Now that is sticking my neck out

    Could be an interesting development in the Racing Post Novice Chase
    where I have tipped Ttebbob
    paddy power removed betting for the race, that was followed by hills doing the same and in the last two minutes ladbrokes have suspended betting

    It could be nothing or it could be a withdrawl but no news on that yet

    John b I really like the write up. Makes for good reading and it’s the sort of stuff that we all like to see. I’ll be on once I can get on.

    Since you’ve mentioned times on this thread I’ll ask you about them. I’ve become really interested in this subject and I’d like to understand more about where to get times and how to use them.

    My understanding is that splits are also very important but I can’t access these. Is there a good site for this for free or is that the sort of thing we have to pay for?

    Thanks again and have a good break.

    Half the runners in the Racing Post Novice Chase have been pulled out,
    4 runners now which is win only but anyone that put on the e/w double when I advised it will still get e/w in a 4 runner race

    The top 3 in the betting are still there but although there is 4 horses pulled out Douvan has drifted from 4/9 to 4/7 as Ttebbob shortens with some bookies

      gengar, firstly don’t bet big because it’s Christmas – just treat it like another day.
      If you follow Johnb all year take his staking advice so what you risk will depend on your points value.
      Johnb is confident about the horses but he can’t guarantee you a return.

    Ttebbob who runs Saturday was advised as a double stake for Wednesday & Thursday total 4 points at 9/2

    Silviniaco Conti and the Silviniaco Conti / Ttebbob double was advised as the Friday tips so another 2 points there

    Now it’s time for Saturday’s Tips and another double stake horse

    Saturday’s Tips

    Wincanton
    1:05
    Pure Poteen 11/2 NAP/NB paddy power (double stake)

    Double
    Pure Poteen & Ttebbob 31.5/1 paddy power

    Pure Poteen is about half those odds with betvictor skybet & coral so get on with paddy power now

    That makes a total of 9 points staked for Saturday but that’s split over 4 days of tips

    Im having a small play on VALSEUR LIDO in the big one whose only run over this kind of distance was a winning one beating some top novices including Don Poli (probably too soon after cheltenham for him) but still at the odds i think he’ll run a decent race

      davie67, he called it wrong and he’ll be more disappointed than anyone.
      But tipsters need thick skins – what he’ll be doing now is trying to pick a winner for tomorrow.

    I expressed my reservations on this earlier in the thread but to suggest deserting John and talk of apologies is ridiculous.

    The man gave his honest assessment of the horse’s chances and was wrong on this occasion.
    But check his stats over the year, day to day and I bet he is in profit.
    The only thing he did wrong for me was suggest using 2 or 3 days stake on it, days when there was no racing which went against his principles of level stake.

    That’s what makes this game so difficult, when someone if johns knowledge gets it wrong, what chance us mere mortals.

    Hopefully most kept level stakes so dust down and move on.

      elvis, correct. Johnb has the courage to go with his conviction. No tipster should have to apologise for a loser – that’s the gamble.

      And Rale I’ve deleted your comment – if anyone wants to criticise Johnb’s selections today do it constructively.
      He’s been on here long enough and put up enough winners to deserve a bit more respect.

    No problem Mr F. I expected that. I wasn’t disrespectful, just pointed out that unnecessary cockiness doesn’t look good, if you look at his recent form.
    All the best and Merry Christmas!

      rale, it’s not cockiness. He has to be confident as a tipster – that’s what it’s about.
      Look around at all today’s tips in the paper – everyone’s selection (winner or loser) is put up confidently.
      I admire Johnb for sticking his neck and sometimes he’ll get it wrong.

    At the end of the day. No one is forced to take his tips. It’s not just about johnb it’s about everyone’s tips and to be fair there’s been some good days recently and bad ones. We should all be sticking together rather than jumping on when it’s a bad day.

      Johnb your just going to have to admit you got Ttebbob horribly wrong you went way way way over the top about a horse that beat trees on its only 2 chase starts that was rated 20 pound below an undefeated superstar in Douvan. You mentioned Douvan jumped slow after it only having 1 run over fences got in close to its fences yeh it did at the last fence when it had the race in the bag you seemed to forget about the high cruising speed of Douvan in its hurdle races even if something comes back wrong with Ttebbob anybody could see it was taken out its comfort zone right from the start with the speed of Douvan and thats without even adding Douvans slick fast jumping.
      You must have been rubbing your hands when Townsend couldnt ride but even with Patrick on board in a grade1 chase Douvan was miles clear in hurdle ratings and will now be miles clear in chase ratings.
      The last time you took on the Mullins/Ricci juggernaut “Foxrock” its still running
      As for Siviniaco Conti you must have been the only person that thought it could turn round the form with Cue card never mind winning the King George there was not a bean for Conti in the last few days.
      Youv had a poor few months and yes betting every day is impossible IMO and even poorer couple of days throwing 8 points or what ever it was on 1 horse against a superstar IMO was a desperation bet trying to get a lump back in 1 go half hoping Douvan would fall or at least jump like a cow.
      A’m sure youl get your form back especially if you stick to the All weather
      Happy punting

      the don cossack, as I said last week I’d prefer you didn’t comment any more.
      Any criticism of Johnb that doesn’t get personal is fair but you went beyond it when you branded him “corrupt”.

  76. Profile photo of elvis parsley
    elvis parsley 12 months ago

    Can you sum all that up in one sentence Don.
    I’m struggling to get a handle of your point.
    No one’s tips here’s are crap.
    They are what the individuals believe to be the correct outcome.
    Of course they are not all correct.
    Up to you then which ones you punt on

    • Profile photo of the don cossack
      the don cossack 12 months ago

      In 20years of learning about racing, I have never herd of tipping first time out horses without previous form! Johnb does regularly.
      Also top grade anything is better to trust gambling on, so I guess when tipping to others, it may be better to tip the highest rated horses. And nap nb double stake those?
      If Johnbs tips are getting called out before hand to be not good looking or have factors that may promote avoiding it or backing something else? Then that’s what I mean by crap tips elvis. And of course?! they then loose

      • Profile photo of elvis parsley
        elvis parsley 12 months ago

        I expressed my doubts, but that’s not to say his tip was crap.
        I put up my piece to offer an alternative angle, and if Ttebbob won, fair play, but it didn’t, so we move on Don.
        Don’t leave the site, every opinion here is welcome.
        Lost count of the times a write up here has saved me from following tips blindly.

        Off to watch arsenal win 3-1 now, haha
