Dec 18: Johnb’s Racing Tips & Chat

Racing_WilliamHill

JOHNB couldn’t land a winner on Saturday so it was 3pts lost.

He’s now 19.67pts down for December but has a confident Sunday selection.

In the meantime let’s kick off the thread will all the picks and chat from the usual suspects.

Johnb says: Sunday sees one of the horses I have been advising on. After being asked by an owner what this horse needed to win again my advice was simple

I thought this horse would run up a sequence on the all-weather over the winter if raised in distance and raced up with the pace. They did this last time but I wasn’t convinced by the jockey but today connections go with an experienced jockey.

Raised in distance a little more this is a horse that wouldn’t mind stepping up in distance even more. Lingfield should suit this horse and the jockey should have him in the mix turning for home where I expect him to to go on and get the first of many all-weather wins this winter.

Last time out he was ridden too far back and I would want to see him up there but in truth it looked a fact-finding mission at Wolverhampton. The race report says “one-paced final furlong” but he was never touched in the straight where he coasted home in fourth and it looked far too obvious.

Johnb’s Sunday Tip

Lingfield 2.05
Bunbury 9-2 NAP/NB bet365, McBookie (double stake)

Antepost Tips

  • 1000 Guineas 2017 – PROMISE TO BE TRUE 20-1 Betfred
  • 2000 Guineas 2017 – CHURCHILL 20-1 (now 8-1) bet365
  • 2017 Derby – CHURCHILL 33-1 (now 20-1) Racebets
  • 2000 Guineas 2017 – 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.”

    As said on yesterday’s thread

      Blue point won’t run now I doubt will it??

        All depends how he trains on, it’s not impossible and I would have said Godolphin would be mad not to run him with the horses they have,
        Mind you they missed one this year in the 2000 Guineas with Log Out Island
        It’s doubtful though but not guaranteed

          Knowing godolphin lately he’ll be running over 6f for the rest of his days then 😩

    Good Luck Johnny, I hope the pro trainers listened to your advice, lol and you can wipe those losses out. I was on Nick’s tips yesterday and he landed a 20/1 shot. It was nice to follow a TV broadcaster and journalist with genuine insight and contacts in the sport. He will be a great addition to our site. Cheers Nick!

      Don’t diss the “random punters” of which you are one. Random punters help make the site what is and people who consistently put up good tips are well followed despite what you may think.
      Remember you claim you have “followers”.

    Morning all,

    I made a tiny profit on my increased stake selection on Saturday as she finished 3rd at 9/2. But Sunday will be a no bet day for me today.

    Best of luck to anyone having a bet and I will keep my eye on the 2.05 with great interest.

    Thanks and GL to all

    maxxxx, where in my writeup does it say I spoke to the trainer?
    Owner, Trainer
    Trainer, Owner
    I suppose with the last three letters the same it must be easy to get confused.
    I don’t talk about what I do because it’s nobody’s business but I am involved in racing now.
    Lastly it’s not about wiping out monthly losses, it’s about long-term yearly profits which I have had for the last 25 years, every year.
    If anyone can’t handle a monthly loss then they shouldn’t be betting.

    Bit unlucky again as Bunbury has never settled, Kelly pulled the head off him for about 6f trying to settle him which has probably cost the horse about 30% of his energy “not the jockeys fault though”
    From seeing the horse up close he looks switched on and has a brain so I would be tempted to say now that if he didn’t settle in his next race to just let out a bit of rein and let him get on with it,
    Bunbury didn’t win and that’s racing but he was clearly the best horse in the race and yet again I was on the right horse but didn’t collect and Johnb must know a thing or two about horses because Bunbury looks a different horse over the longer distance

      Shame this horse needs a bit of nursing through a race but has a few wins in him I think! I’ll put him in the tracker 👍

    Thanks to Alanm and Johnb I managed to land the Rev forecast on the 2.05 race which has saved my skin today.
    Thanks lads,keep up the good work.

      Watched the race in the bookies just for interest and thought Johnb was unlucky. Nicely done by yourself though.
