Feb 14: Johnb’s Racing Tips & Chat

Racing_WilliamHill

SUNDAY is Valentine’s Day so let’s see a little bit more love on the racing thread.

There were some good winners posted on Saturday but the baiting of busstop is childish and won’t be tolerated.

Don’t let one or two idiots spoil it for others and the best advice is to ignore childish comments and allow admin to deal with them.

Johnb made a 0.5pt profit on Saturday and is up 13.9pts in February.

      I’ve heard that racing in Exeter might be abandoned. Already waterlogged and more rain expected tomorrow. Check before you go.

      Clerk of the course said course is 90% racable, expecting 5mm of rain through the night

    Agree with Johnb with Midnight prayer has by far the best form in the book and I also think at the odds that Masters Hill could put it up to Final Bay and repeat last year’s success
    Enjoy the day anyway.

        Cheers, this is my shortlist at the moment. I will check the beauties out tomorrow in the paddock (if its on), before deciding though. Love being there, gives you a real chance to choose a winner once you eye the paddock and I get the chance to speak to a few connections from Somerset way.

        I’ve looked at these,

        3.10 – Unowhatimeanharry / west approach
        3.40 – Midnight prayer/shangani
        4.10 – Fingal bay/Masters Hill
        4.40 – Southfield vic/buckhorn timothy

        So those are the ones I like the look of on paper, with the “/” as I want to see them in flesh before deciding. But we will see. I expect Ill be posting one of these as my tips for tomorrow soon anyway.

    I’m sticking to Navan myself with a couple of bets

    NAP PRINCE OF SCARS 5/4 3.00
    Although Cooper is on Dedigout I think POS is very progressive and will be the fitter of the two.

    EW COURT JESTER 14/1 4.30
    Winner of the race 2 years ago off 93 and in here off 88 with the jockey taking another 4lbs off. I think he’s overpriced and worth a play if he can capture the form he shown 2 runs ago when 3rd of 13. The winner of that race went on to win again off 8lbs higher mark LTO so hopefully he can give me a run for my money.

    Best of luck to all

    Megara 4.50 Southwell 11/8 trainer 5 wins from last 6
    There are so many quotes from him but this one stands out for me.
    “As trainers, our great duty is to prepare them properly for what is a very, very severe test. Our duty is to make sure that a horse is never asked to do what he is incapable of doing. Just like children.

    “Because I firmly believe that no horse wants to go to a race meeting, I am grimly determined to make sure, and I appreciate how important it is, to never, ever run one that is not ready.”

    Prescott finds that the harder you work, the harder it is to surrender. Consequently he has “never lost a night’s sleep over a horse. Never. Because I don’t think I’ve ever gone to bed when I haven’t thought I’ve done everything I can do.”

    Main tips for tomorrow, I’m off to Exeter so hopefully can get a few tips on here. Will post if I hear anything while I’m there (if I get the chance).

    NAP – Navan 4:00 – Black Hercules EVENS (Get on this quick, odds will drop I’m sure) Double Stake
    NB – Exeter 3:10 – UnowhatImeanharry 5/1 (Hoping I won’t change my mind when I see them in the paddock)

    Other picks:
    Southwell: 4:50 – Megara 5/4

    Outsider of the day:
    Southwell 3:20 – Apache Storm 7/1 E/W

      Biggee think gg has been told to stop tipping winners his picks lately have been very strange I would you say.

      • Profile photo of biggee
        biggee 10 months ago

        Yeah you’re right alanm very strange. I guess with all tipsters including ourselves we’ll have baron spells along with hitting a purple patch although I’m still waiting to hit mine :) I think Hugh Taylor is the man at the moment it’s almost impossible to get on at his advertised odds but he’s seems to be finding a few winners lately. I see he’s taken a weeks holiday tho which is a shame. Anyway as you say onwards we go and busstop get yourself back on here you’ve been sorely missed!

    As Court Jester is now a N/R im going ti go for MAD BRIAN 3.30 7/1 ew.
    Seems to be lots of confidence behind him today when you see he was 16s last night. Rated 21lbs higher over fences and if back to anywgere near his best will take some beating

    Someone needs to be held accountable for Exeter going ahead today, only managed to see the 3:40 today and it’s an absolute joke, no way is that course racable, it’s embarrassing to watch and a disgrace

    Seriously, Ruby Walsh needs to be investigated, how is he constantly falling at the final fence/hurdle?

    • Profile photo of jimron12
      jimron12 10 months ago

      It does make you wonder doesn’t it as he is employed by a bookmaker Annie power falls and he get a rise!? Purely speculation I might add but I wouldn’t be surprised

      • Profile photo of champyr
        champyr 10 months ago

        But then what about Killultagh Vic, horses fall when tired mostly and that’s likely to be at the last if they get that far.

    Exeter was great today guys, the conditions were bad though. A lot of fallers. John well done with the nap, but you were very very lucky. Had no energy left at all, if Golden didn’t fall it would’ve romped home. I backed ur nap though so I was cheering! Haha.

    Great day today, the NB was fantastic, and I put extra on after seeing the beast in the flesh. Very sad about hercules falling, was winning by a length and jumping very well when fell at the last. Incredibly unlucky, backed at evens and was backed into 1.3 odds! Incredible.

    Well done all today. My favourite winner was when I backed Ben to beat Southfield vic, the bookies were not pleased! So many punters backed against Southfield who jumped and ran terribly. The conditions so testing however.

      Mines was even worse theamazingfrankel a was on Black Hercules at 11/8 TBH a was never happy at Walsh sticking to the inside you hardly ever see horses going round Navan hard to the inside for some reason the fences look bigger inside plus he also kept taking a pull fiddling the fences instead of just letting the horse stride out using its fast jumping to cocky IMO just looking to ease away in the run in.
      I hope its not picked up an injury av got 16s for it to win any race at Cheltenham the horse is made for Patrick in the 4miler.

    0.25 point loss today because of a rule 4 thanks to Midnight Prayer winning or being handed the race but if a tired horse falls then maybe it’s not that lucky
    February 13.65 points up

      Before anyone starts saying Golden Chieftain would have won if not for falling, I am not saying that,
      yes the horse would have won but it was a tired jump and if you can’t jump you don’t win

      • Profile photo of theamazingfrankel
        theamazingfrankel 10 months ago

        Wins a win John. I was very relieved to be honest though. Don’t think midnight would’ve been able to give anymore, had to slap her over the finishing line. Well done though.

          John, does it not worry you that Novabridge has been backed from 12/1 to 3/1 favourite in the matter of an hour or so? High draw to run from, and no form. Must be some word on it?

    Johnb looks like you can bin your Ttebbob antipost slip getting beat of a horse thats going for the 4miler was a shocker.
    Looked like a horse that had its hart ripped out by Douvan.
    Agree about Exeter its should never had been on watching horses being pulled up refusing or finishing legless does the sport no favours mind you some late gamble on the Hobbs bumper horse in the last 2mins it went out to 10/11 then hammered into 8/15 only horse that finished its race all day.
