Dec 31: Johnb’s Racing Tips & Chat

Racing_WilliamHill

JOHNB is hoping to toast a Hogmanay winner or two today after drawing a blank on Wednesday.

It was four points lost so our man is now 28.46pts down for the year as he bids to make the most of his last chance to wipe out the deficit.

Johnb’s Thursday Tips

Lingfield 12:30
Not Your Call 7-1 NAP/NB ladbrokes (double stake)

Warwick 1:10
Battle Dust 11-4 ladbrokes

Double 29-1 ladbrokes

Johnb says: “I would suggest getting on Not Your Call as quick as possible.”

Post all your racing tips and chat here folks and have a great Hogmanay.

    I have already said how unlucky Young Jackie was and also said to Lulu I thought she was short of room turning for home,
    I asked Lulu Stanford about the race and this was her reply

    “She broke awfully, but i did not want to bully the mare, she is 8 after all. She picked up ok but there were few gaps. Another day!”

    Up for review Punchestown 2.05 6/4
    Av been waiting on this horse being stepped up to 3miles all it does is stay it could well be Wylie’s world hurdle or even RSA horse next season. Gigginstown running Nambour is the only problem but a’m sure Up For Review is the stronger stayer i just wish i new what race Mullins & Wylie will go for at Cheltenham they have so many options with different horses.

        Cheers alanm the race basically went exactly as i expected Ruby front running and just winding it up turning the screw over the last mile. I didnt think JetStream Jack would stay and was sure Up For Review would be stronger stayer than Nambour.
        Av followed Wylie’s horses for years next up is Yorkhill i mentioned a few weeks ago av bet it and Min antipost for the Supreme and Yorkhill would be out dropped back to 2miles to see if its fast enough personally i think it is so av had a small bet at 5/2 for the Tolworth Hurdle at Sandown on Sat only small because we still dont know if it will come across if its in final dec’s i’ll be having another bet.

    Lulu def unlucky
    Jokey and horse are one to look out for,
    Johnb why is there such a massive gamble on ‘back not this call’ according to betfair it shud be the big outsider but looking like cud be odds on tomorrow,
    Cheers

    2 big gambles going on at punchestown.

    12.35 Mount Brandon 12.35
    20s into 10s. I mentioned this one last week when he was also heavily punted but the race was cancelled. Makes hcap debut and might be on a decent mark but other than that very little to go on.

    3.05 The Church Gate 20s into 5s
    Useless form last term but again makes hcap debut but also makes debut for new yard and trainer has had a couple of winners from just 8 runners here.
    Not backed them myself yet buut will watch what pans out.

        stupawley 11 months ago

        So DC, what did you make of the run of The Church Gate?!! I spotted the gamble at Clonmel last week when meeting cancelled so put in my tracker. Had 2 lots of £10 EW at 25s, cashed out one this morning for £60. I am puzzled, it was tanking out in front and jumping well, never seen a horse pulled up in front as they normally lose ground first. Doesn’t say anything on comments in running but I wondered if the saddle had slipped forward so the jockey to the decision to PU before the business end. Too early to tell if would have won but was travelling well. My cynical side says there was something dodgy going on pulling him up like that, surely stewards had to take a look?

    I have had a little nibble on TOP OFFER 12.30 ling. I know john has put up one for this race and the way its being backed will probably win but i just cant resist a small ew at 25/1 for a C&D winner whose 1lb below that win and claimer takes a further 7lbs off. That win was also in a class 5 and this is class 6
    Ive also backed
    KING OF ARAGON 6/4 1.35
    UP FOR REVIEW 5/4 2.05

    Best of luck to all

    No chance I’ll be double staking JBs NAP/NB, I appreciate all the tips and effort but genuinely can’t remember the last time a joint NAP/NB won. (Maybe I’ve missed one but they do seem to lose a hell of a lot).
    My main bets are at Lingfield, I’ll be on:
    Lingfield:
    12:30 – SPINNING COBBLERS @ 4/1
    1:00 – North Creek @ 7/1
    1:30 – Cambodia @ 13/8 NB
    2:30 – Corporal Maddox @ 9/2 NAP (Won last two and up in grade but still well handicapped on old form, danger Dougan)
    3:30 – Justice First @ 4/1 NNB

    1pt singles, 0.5 point doubles and treble on the NAP, NB, NNB and a 0.25 accumulator. On a few from the site as well.

    Another NAP/NB no show, I hate the all weather, full of false gambles and need plenty of luck in running, much prefer the jumps.

    • Profile photo of davisam
      davisam 11 months ago

      Couldn’t believe he doubled staked that horse, especially without reasoning, I mean fair play for sticking his neck out but at 28pts down for the month, surely you’d try and pick something a little safer- went off at 8s anyway, so no gamble. I completely avoid all joint NAP/NBs as since I have followed the site I haven’t seen one win. Not giving the man too much stick as he’s the reason we’re all here but just my opinion on the double stakes. GL

  29. Profile photo of davisam
    davisam 11 months ago

    I can’t comment on your original points but I completely agree with the latter, I was going to post something about this earlier but didn’t want to be giving out too much stick – we all know it’s a hard game. But I really do feel he tries for the left field option too much when like you say, there are more obvious winners in the field. Obviously we all try to look for the value but I do honestly feel JB can look too much into it and bypass the winner. At the end of the day, a winner is a winner, if your NAP comes into at 2/1 everyday you’d be a hero, where as if you get one 10/1 winner a month, nobody would follow!

    Seemes more than odd, would put you right off gambling.

      bobajob5 its called a false gamble it happens practically everyday on the all weather as soon as the horse drifted back out on course it had no chance basically last where its finished most of its races.
