Dec 23: Johnb’s Racing Tips & Chat


JOHNB will be back with his Boxing Day tips and is sitting pretty with a 58.4pt profit for December.

There’s racing from Dundalk today so feel free to post your picks if you fancy a festive punt.

Antepost Tips

  • 1000 Guineas 2017 – PROMISE TO BE TRUE 20-1 Betfred (now 25-1)
  • 2000 Guineas 2017 – CHURCHILL 20-1 bet365 (now 6-4)
  • 2017 Derby – CHURCHILL 33-1 Racebets (now 7-1)
  • 2000 Guineas 2017 – BLUE POINT 14-1 racebets (now 33-1)

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.”

    John b, gutted I didn’t follow the antepost tips before but didn’t have the cash. Got a lot of excitement out of the Idaho tip last year though. Will learn to back them early in the future! Do you think there is any value in backing Churchill for the derby now at 6/1?

    • Profile photo of Johnb
      Johnb 2 years ago

      At the moment yes because there aren’t a lot of alternatives against him,
      The best time to back antepost is obviously before the bookies realise how good the horse is and I still feel they don’t think he will get 1m 4f which is why 6/1 is still available but it’s still value because at the moment I can’t see dangers

    some big priced winners this week on here makes a change. glad people have taken my advice. notable winners this week johnb 95-1 treble paddyirishman 14-1 myself 9-1 harry 20-1 and jimron 33-1. lets elimante all these tips under 3-1 guys like i say theres no fun in backing horses at these prices.

    im at my local track dundalk tonight ive got one lined up from my brothers friend. ill post it later. have a great day everyone.

    • Profile photo of Johnb

      It’s not about how big the odds are, it’s about value and value can be any price,
      Sometimes a 1/2 favourite can be good value and sometimes a 16/1 outsider isn’t value even if it wins

      Because nobody can back Winners all the time we have to make sure we are backing horses at the right odds, I am surprised more people don’t back horses the night before because that’s when the odds are usually at the highest, sometimes I see a horse on here being tipped at 3/1 but 8/1 was available the night before

      What I am trying to drill into people is that it’s not always good to back a winner, sometimes it’s good to back a loser as sometimes backing a horse that lost was still the right horse to be on

      A lot of people won’t get that

        Merry Christmas to all
        Johnb,In support of your point ,I posted Realize on Tuesday night when it was 6/1 then yesterday when it was 5/2 posted again to say any value was gone . Pricewise ,HT ,etc calculate Thier returns on prices that most punters don’t get , people should be looking at ROI at betfair SP and then judge a tipster GL.

        • Profile photo of Johnb
          Johnb 2 years ago

          I do give my ROI as it’s the only way to judge someone,
          Someone may have £1000 profit for the month and someone else may have £50 profit but how do we know which is better, ROI tells us this,
          The £1000 profit may have taken £2000 staked to get it whereas the £50 profit may have come from £10 staked and ROI “return on investment” tells us this
          Another reason why everyone should keep records of all bets

        • Profile photo of Johnb
          Johnb 2 years ago

          Going on the point betfair sp
          I don’t agree with as there is no reason people on here can’t get decent prices, most of my selections do get shorter odds because s I have said bookies can’t price up, the people who do it don’t have the necessary skill set to do it and it takes time for the true odds to come through with punter popularity.

          It can also work the other way as my own personal stats are far better than the site stats, simply because there are times when I use certain bookies because they sponsor the thread and it’s only right to advertise them, it’s up to the punter to get the best odds

          • Profile photo of duncanpoundcake
            duncanpoundcake 2 years ago

            What I meant by betfair SP is that it is a level playing field on which to judge tipsterss Most people who follow this site won’t only follow your tips but Mr F ,Greg Browning , Jordan and thir favourite like Alanm , Dougie C, Boz ,Busstop ,etc ,scattergun betting doesn’t work long term When I started to follow your tips it was always level stake singles,why the change of approach over the last year or two ?
            By the way if you are short of something to watch Anthropoid is a terrific film GL
