FEB 15: JOHNB’S RACING TIPS AND CHAT

Racing_Betfred

JOHNB made it three winning naps in a row on Saturday as Caroles Destrier took the honours at 3-1.

It ended up a level day with four points staked and four won so February’s profit remains at 39.63. Looking ahead to Sunday and our man is going for four in a row with a horse he tipped two runs ago and he has a couple of Cheltenham antepost tips too.

Cheltenham Antepost

World Hurdle
Annie Power 6-1
Bet365, BetVictor, Boylesports

Briar Hill 25-1
Bet365, Skybet, Paddy Power, Coral, Betway

ALL BOOKIES MENTIONED ARE NON RUNNER NO BET
So money back if the horse doesn’t run.

JohnB’s Sunday tips

Market Rasen 4:15
Benefit In Kind 10-3 NAP/NB Bet365 William Hill

Navan 2:15
Briar Hill 3-1 William Hill

Double
Benefit In Kind & Briar Hill 16.33-1 William Hill

Benefit In Kind (NAP)
JohnB says: “I tipped this horse as my NB two runs ago at Musselburgh and he won by 20 lengths at 5-1. Then last time out at Catterick I tipped him again and he should have won but fell at the third last.

“Down in class on Sunday in what looks a weak race he should be able to take care of these rivals if jumping round this time. Lightly raced with only the four runs over fences so still has improvement in him.”

Briar Hill (NB)
JohnB says: “I also tipped this horse last time out and it was the same day the nap ran. I have always thought highly of this horse but so far after two runs this season he hasn’t quite managed to recover from his fall at Cheltenham last year when breaking a cheekbone.

“Last time out Briar Hill was fourth, beaten 13 lengths by Dedigout and Zaidpour was eight lengths ahead of Briar Hill but Ruby Walsh sticks with Briar Hill which says he is expecting an improved run.

“There is also word coming from the Mullins yard that Briar Hill has been impressive at home and looking better than he has for a while. The Mullins team want to run him in the World Hurdle so they are still confident Briar Hill still has what it takes.

“Ruby Walsh is also quietly confident about Briar Hill’s chances on Sunday. Dedigout beat Briar Hill last time in what was a much improved effort but there is no guarantee he will find that form again so I am confident Briar Hill will have enough improvement to win this.”

Good luck all and post your racing tips and chat here.

    Cheers Johnb, both have had issues in the last races. Any reason for such optimism?

    posted this on yesterday’s thread

    Trixie
    2.05 Grimley Girl 3/1
    2.25 Kapricorne 7/2
    4.15 Benefit in Kind 7/2

    Also tried both of John’s in singles and double. But the single on briar hill and double is small stake as unsure on this one

    Having now read John’s write up, I’m a bit more confident in briar hill. However, I’ll keep my bets as they are.

    Good luck all

  7. dawnisrising 2 years ago

    johnb you are truly the best horse tipster i know yes i rate hugh taylor very highly… i just do because in my opinion he does exactly what you do….you pan out the race before they even begin….but if my life depended on it and an FN was pointing at my head i would easily say JB…..i take my hat off to you….last year i didn’t really appreciate what you were all about and sometimes lashed out when i had beans and toast for dinner but i can safely say after learning from my mistakes and lets not forget i’m 35 now i genuinely only started backing horses when i was 30….but i have instantly fell in love with the game….but i now know what your all about…..i thank the man above for introducing me virtually to one of the best horse men

    All hail john b king of the races

  9. conor 2 years ago

    In fairness there is so many excellent tipsters in the racing section that we are spoilt so thankyou everyone who contributes daily. Your insight and knowledge is greatly valued and appreciated.

  10. dawnisrising 2 years ago

    Conor i completely agree, what i am saying is able to pan out a race before the horses go to sleep the night before is special

    I wouldn’t know Andy,spent some time the other day when entries for The National came out,i said to Gavin 18 month ago,thats a national horse,took my eye its been given a hurdle entry at Cheltenham,,Graeme Wyllie owns it and he’s desperate to win the race,Willie Mullins trains it….my mate who lays and backs using Betdaq/Betfair has put a few quid on at 74’s and were going to carry on each week backing it…Ante-post takin a chance,but hey!!!

  18. Haggis 2 years ago

    A very good friend of mine sent me that by email,see what your thoughts are chaps,sounds good to me,imm all in on it?little bit each week?any thoughts chaps?

  19. Haggis 2 years ago

      morning everyone

      2 winners yesterday including the nap

      nothing today no flat racing not advising without proper reason so good luck everyone never tip just for the sake of it.

      happy days

  21. Haggis 2 years ago

    Sorry their is 2 parts to the email,forgot to send the 1st part with the horses name,any thoughts to all the top tipsters on here would greatly be received but I’m all over it chaps

  22. Jimmy 2 years ago

    Haggis. Back in focus is running in the 2.15 navan today. Is that the horse for the national your talking about. He’s 14/1 today.

  23. Haggis 2 years ago

    Yes that’s the national horse,my mate did say it was running today!but defo a national horse

  24. Gaz 2 years ago

    Busstop – what’s the reasoning for going against benefit in kind? In turmoil now coz you’re up there with JB… Lol

    Good luck!

  27. Nick 2 years ago

    Haggis is It worth backing today or are these just warm ups?

  28. Luke A 2 years ago

    Nick, this is just a warm up today. Back in focus is running in the same race as briar hill, so is up against 3 very good sorts. This race is just a prep. The distance today is only 2m5f, so nothing like the stamina test that a grand national brings

  29. Nick 2 years ago

    Cheers Luke A

  30. Haggis 2 years ago

    I think it’s a trial run,but in racing you never know nick??

    Any DC or Boz up? Or am I missing it? Cheers

  33. johnb 2 years ago

    For anyone wondering about Back In Focus
    the horse has been entered for the last 3 Grand Nationals
    Willie Mullins has also said for the last 4 years that this horse will always be aimed at the National
    but its too injury prone

    he was entered in 2013 but was injured

    then last year at one point he was the favourite for the National then again got injured

    he is entered again this year so dont expect too much racing before the National & today is his first hurdle race since 22 July 2012

  34. Alanm 2 years ago

    (got price last night)

    Im also going to have a quid on VENT NIVERNAIS 20/1 but just out of cutiousity.
    The trainer has a 50% strike rate 9-18 wins at the track. This horse made his UK debut in a hurdle race yet had been a chaser in FRANCE so i would excuse his debut. Worth a quid for interest.

    Best of luck to all

    Great to see De Niro and Alanm also going for Kapricorne. After seeing it has drifted a bit this morning after I put it up last night, I was slightly worried. But I’m confident again now. If it takes to fences well, then I can’t see this one being beaten

    PenguinsJames just depends if the horse can hurdle,
    On flat form he would win but you would just be hoping he can jump

    Oh shut up Dawnrising, it was a pathetic effort being pulled up. It happens very often, the horses tipped on here drift then run like an absolute cow.

  87. Rookie 2 years ago

    Martin have you been with us all week? Its been SO pathetic You wouldnt believe!

  88. azz the wigan 2 years ago

    never mind john b you have given us all winners in the past few day’s to line out pockets everybody makes mistakes that’s why they put rubbers on the end of pencils onwards and upwards

  107. JP 2 years ago

    Hey rookie – worst, most boring film ive ever seen – 2 hours of my life im never getting back! A bit like the money i lost today – ha ha!

  108. Duncan Poundcake 2 years ago

    Ah lovely Nina !
    Martin since See More Business in 1999 only one horse previously beaten in a Gold Cup has came back to win the race .No prizes for guessing which one ,stats not good for Conti.GL.

  110. bobo 2 years ago

    How did mullins lose that last race cruising and the second string stroll’s by it after being pushed 2f out unreal.

  111. Rookie 2 years ago

    Well we all know about zac brown and seeing as jonjo cant seem to put out a loser at the minute it would be rude not to take that double Johnb!

  112. toptipterry 2 years ago

    Who do u fancy Duncan for the gold cup..?I’ve got a sneaky feeling this could be one of the best gold cup races off all time.its quite wide open for me.Windemerre for me at 16s in Ladbrokes a fortnight ago..didn’t go mad..tenner each way.

    Horses for courses & conti dont do the cheltenham hill.

  115. johnb 2 years ago

    There is no proof that Conti doesnt get up the hill infact the way he runs says he will

    Last year Silviniaco Conti was found to have stomach ulcers so to get within 2 lengths of the winner was an outstanding run with the discomfort he had to cope with.

  116. Duncan Poundcake 2 years ago

    Toptipterry ,I would think Last years winner will be in the mix but I have 20/1 for Road to Riches although I missed the 33/1 that some got I’m quite happy to let it run .Like Johnb i have Champagne Fever but didn’t get anywhere near 14/1 .Just hope they all turn up fit and well ,most firms are nrnb now which is a bonus GL .

  117. toptipterry 2 years ago

    Champagne fever 14/1..wow

  118. boz 2 years ago

    alanm m lay of the dat again not being funny mate there no sense bets

  119. dougiec 2 years ago

    De Niro,I think double carpet Rookie and myself always stick a few quid on Nina irrespective of whom she is riding for.I know Tuzo was in front last time and the Mullins/Mullins combination is usually unbackable,but paying dividends this season.

  120. toptipterry 2 years ago

    He’s sure to run a good race Duncan..I wantYOURS to win++++++++!”IF mine don’t haha..

  121. swany 2 years ago

    Just home not a great day ,well done Duncan and Luke,one from two for me 10/3 so not all bad,watched rerun of Briar hill hard to say what would have happened had it not come down,but at least the horse is ok thats racing,good luck tomorrow.
