JOHNB drew a blank on Sunday so is now 1.21pts in profit for December.
He is hoping to start the week with a bang on Monday and is advising a double among his picks. Already his Nap is being well backed.
Johnb’s Monday Tips
Taysh & Volunteer Point 35-1 Betvictor
Volunteer Point (NAP)
Run at Chelmsford last time was eye-catching, the horse was never put into a good position but still ran on strongly to get second. At the furlong pole he was about eight lengths behind the winner but was beaten just under two lengths.
Trainer Mick Channon has gone for a change in jockey and they don’t come any better than Graham Gibbons.
Drawn in stall one on Monday Gibbons can take advantage of that and have the horse better placed. Volunteer Point just needs to be within a couple of lengths turning for home to take all the beatin, but coming from stall one I would like to see the jockey make the pace.
The owners who bought this horse from Al Shaqab Racing got themselves a bargain 7000 for this horse is unbelievable. Formally trained by John Gosden Taysh ran a cracker last time out only being beat by the Godolphin horse Always Smile who went on to listed company 2nd beaten a nose.
And a very hot fillies listed race it was with horses like Osaila, Jellicle Ball, Touchline and Sulaalaat involved. Taysh has been progressing with every run and is far better than an 87 rated horse.
