Dec 8: Johnb’s Racing Tips & Chat

Racing_WilliamHill

JOHNB landed a super 7-1 winning Nap on Monday to end the day with a 5pt profit.

He’s now 6.21pts up for December and looking to boost the coffers further on Tuesday.

Tickity Bleue (NAP)
Johnb says: “707 days since this horse last run but she is by far the best horse in the race.
Her last run December 2013 was a win, a dead heat but a win, the important thing about that win though was that the horse she dead heated with was Mollys A Diva who now is rated 141.
On that day two years ago Tickity Bleue was by far the better horse, she ran green, made a couple of mistakes late on, ran on after the last and was just caught on the line.
So as I was saying Mollys A Diva is now rated 141 and although it’s nearly two years since Tickity Bleue has run she wouldn’t need to improve on that run to win this and could probably run below that level and still win this.
Race fitness is going to be the main question with this horse but the fact she won on debut suggests this won’t be a problem as Alan King can also ready a horse after a break. On debut in a nhf race she beat Glorious Twelfth who was no mug for Nicky Henderson, Glorious Twelfth did get revenge the following race but there was a 10lb pull in the weights that day.
Her only other run was on her hurdling debut where she came a decent fourth.
The main point though is if Tickity Bleue is ready to go she could make a mockery of this field and my personal opinion is that Alan King will have her ready.”

      Top stuff Johnb,jimron, alanm back in the game! And well done all others winners, looking like hitting top form just in time for Xmas and just when the premiership had took away my pot. Top flight footy can be wicked! rebuilding my way back up, so cation is the word!!?
      What is it that points you towards , for good measure ,please Johnb. looks a proper pros pick, hero status if that goes in.
      also, If you have equal stakes Johnb? why do you have a nap and nb?

    Because Johnb nap was over 4/1 I have a risk free bet with bet365 on the
    Southwell 1.00 Race, what do you fancy.

    • Profile photo of Johnb
      Johnb 1 year ago

      buckiejag at Southwell because of the kickback which is unlike other all weather tracks a front runner is an advantage but with a front runner you also need a horse that is good enough,
      The draw at Southwell over 7f doesn’t really matter because the jockeys have a couple of furlongs to the first bend to get into position but I personally prefer a high drawn horse,
      It’s also an advantage having a horse that is proven on the surface but this is when a knowledge of breeding comes in handy as breeding can give us an idea if a horse is likely to handle the surface.

      Going through this I would say INDOMITABLE SPIRIT currently 11/2
      he hasn’t run on the surface but I like the breeding so he should be OK on it, he is drawn high and is a front runner and could steal a march on his rivals

    I’ve been using a descending points betting system that has been working quite well for me recently so thought I’d post it up. Obviously it’s still down to picking the right horses and I usually use a mixture of my own picks and the best looking tips. Today’s are all my own so will see how I get on.

    1.5 pts global dream 2.50 utt 2/1
    1.3 pts serenity now 3.30 sth 7/2
    1.1 pts verano 1.20 utt 3/1
    .9 pts it’s a long road 1.50 utt 5/1
    .7 pts best tamayuz 2.00 sth 8/1

    recoba, doubt anything you could do would kill my bets, I’m pretty good at that myself ha ha I actually watched the last four races for Tigers Home, she looked quite impressive and did not get a run at Wolves. I feel the penalty and the step up in company may just catch up with her here. Big Storm is certainly quite topical at the moment! Last run 90 days ago in I think McCoy’s last winner on Gannicus which was on turf. The horse has a few wins on the all weather and runs well fresh. Has also run in better company. I also have a few of those selections in a small yankee for fun.

    Morning all again I backed Volunteer Point yesterday had a fancy for it on it’s previous running and when I saw that Johnb was tipping it that did not put me off (Only kidding John great pick) Thought I would try a couple today.

    12:40 Fontwell “Drumviredy 5/2″ bet365

    1:20 Uttoxeter “Verano” 5/2 bet365

    Horses are poor prices but would rather have a 5/2 winner than a 10/1 loser.

    Johnb, Thanks for the pointer in the risk free bet, looks like I have another risk free bet on the Southwell 3.00 race as your fancy was over 4/1, can you help a little with this race only if you have time.

    Johnb earlier post.
    buckiejag at Southwell because of the kickback which is unlike other all weather tracks a front runner is an advantage but with a front runner you also need a horse that is good enough,
    The draw at Southwell over 7f doesn’t really matter because the jockeys have a couple of furlongs to the first bend to get into position but I personally prefer a high drawn horse,
    It’s also an advantage having a horse that is proven on the surface but this is when a knowledge of breeding comes in handy as breeding can give us an idea if a horse is likely to handle the surface.

    Going through this I would say INDOMITABLE SPIRIT currently 11/2
    he hasn’t run on the surface but I like the breeding so he should be OK on it, he is drawn high and is a front runner and could steal a march on his rivals

    The race wasn’t run the way I thought it would as the jockey on INDOMITABLE SPIRIT was content to sit off the pace but that race does show you the importance of knowing your breeding

  60. Profile photo of Johnb
    Johnb 1 year ago

    buckiejag knowledge on breeding is a must for the all weather especially Southwell but its also handy for predicting the ground or distance a horse should like
    In the USA it is widely used by punters along with sectional timing and should be used more by punters over here because our bookies only really allow for form

    Been following for a while now and made some good money. At no point have AlanM, jimron etc claimed the tips as their own. AlanM stated a few weeks ago that he uses tips from internet, the fact it HE still has to decide if he thinks it is a good bet or not!! Following his NAPs has been profitable so who cares where they are from. What I find is that the good tipsters have a nice community on here that point each other in the right direction (most of the time). Why call them out, just know need at all.

    Keep going AlanM, jimron, JohnB, don’t listen to those who aren’t worth the time.

    I have to give a mention to Lulu Stanford who looks like a seasoned pro when she rides,
    I sometimes say certain jockeys are not strong enough in a finish as they wave their arms about trying to ride a finish
    Lulu Stanford who won on Excellent Aim today looked confident, she was read the race well sitting just off the pace and was strong in the finish
    I think her racing style is faultless and she is well balanced

    But for people that don’t know Lulu, she weighs 7 stone and is only 16 years old
    Watch for her she has a massive future
