Feb 2: Johnb’s Racing Tips & Chat

Racing_WilliamHill

JOHNB made a great start to February on Monday with a 7pt profit.

The joint nap and NB was a non-runner so 2pts were on 7-2 shot Perfect Alchemy and it did the job. There’s another double-stake tip advised for Tuesday and our man says: “Poor racing Tuesday which is why these two are short.”

Johnb’s Tuesday Tips

Southwell 2:00
Edgar 5-2 skybet ladbrokes William hill

3:00
Don’t Call Me 1-1 NAP/NB skybet (double stake)

Double
Edgar & Don’t Call Me 6-1 skybet

Don’t Call Me (NAP/NB double stake)
Johnb says: “Apologies for this one at even money but it looks strong in a class 6 claiming stakes on Tuesday. He has been beaten twice recently by a head in class 5 claiming races where the trainer gets to decide what weight the horse has, not the handicapper. This is why on Tuesday Don’t Call Me is so far in at the weights with the second favourite it’s embarrassing, Don’t Call Me is 14lb well in with Patriotic “a horse I have tipped a couple of times”.
He is even 6lb well in with Eutropius “also a horse I have tipped before” while the other two runners are just out their depth.
Don’t Call Me has been running against far better horses than these and only in his last race a class 2 he was fourth beat two lengths by Mutasayyid, some of the other horses in that race were the likes of Melvin The Grate, Fort Bastion & Gabrials Kaka.
Last year he was beaten just over one & a half lengths by Tryster “sure we all remember that horse”.
He has run 59 times and only raced at Southwell once and that was on his debut in 2010 and he absolutely loved the surface.
Dandy Nicholls loves finding these types of races for his horses and it’s only three years since this horse was running in two group two’s in Meydan
This race on Tuesday is the lowest class of race he has been in.”

      If he doesn’t win it won’t be because he doesn’t handle the surface, he handled it really well only time he has run on it

      I can’t believe you honestly think not winning in January or February is a negative when you see the standard of race & horses he was up against

        Absolute nonsense John.
        Maybe the horse was running against horses above his level
        Why is it now running in a donkey Derby on the sand if it’s a class 1/2 horse. That is what your argument is from where I’m standing.
        Just because it ran in those races doesn’t necessarily mean it’s presence there was justified.
        Not saying it won’t win, probably will, but your justification for the tip is wrong in my opinion.

          In its last 9 class 2 races the shortest odds don’t call me has gone off at is 10-1, which backs up what I’m saying about the horse running in races above his station.

            Actually Dandy does this quite a lot placing his horses in races like this to pick up a bit of prize money for the owners and he is a master at it,
            The telling point about today even though he is now a non runner is that they took a substantial amount of weight off the horse which costs connections £1,000 per 1lb if the horse is claimed and that last race I can tell you was really good form, last point is I don’t talk nonsense

    Evening all. I’m going to try and contribute more to this great site. Usually a spectator, appreciating the tips.

    My main bet tomorrow;

    Sonny the one 4:15 Taunton, 4/1 generally.

    Had a tip on this horse last week from some of my local Somerset insiders ha.. They think it will run a good race, and is well weighted. Sonny’s last ran actually surprised the owners but they are hoping it continues on that form. I was hoping Sonny would be at least 6/1, so it could be a bit short priced. However I won’t moan if it wins.

    Also fancy Johns nap, although slightly worried about handling the surface. Also prefer Morris as a jockey, so I’ll probably spectate that race. Good luck all.

    PS Even though I have also tipped Don’t Call Me, I was amazed to see Jeanie’s Place who has ran in Listed company before run in a Class 6 race today and get beat weaker opposition.

    Ok lads its not as if its a young horse now Johnb.Bumfous owners have pushed trainers in the past especially at big meetings to get horses entered. Im not saying this is the case with this horse,but not set the heather on fire irrespective of what races its run. Now in a £2000 claimer paying to pick its weight per pound . Wonder how many claims go in the box. Both of you can do the forecast.

    Very happy to start my contributions with a win. Always helps to have friends in the yards, and I’ll continue to provide inside tips when I get them.

    A big well done to John, I really hope you smash this month to get the public confidence back. I’ve always had the respect, I don’t always back but I still respect your decisions. Can’t wait for the thistlecrack win at Cheltenham, I’m going up with the Tizard yard nd everyone is so excited. Cue Card has been running brilliantly too, really hasn’t stopped working hard since the start of the year. Should be a great year.

    Well done all today.

    Also for some to take note after 2 very good days with very healthy profit already for the month it would be easy for Johnb to post one shorter priced favourite tomorrow and going forward but no it’s two high priced tips and the double as usual so anyone that suggests that is talking nonsense. I still follow the tips so let’s not question who is following and who isn’t. Yes it’s been a tough few months but my thoughts have always been if I stop for a period of time no doubt I would miss a good run or an excellent double. I don’t have the knowledge or the time to be able to be able to tip on this thread and follow johns horses mainly for daily interest for than anything else and any profit that comes my way is a bonus and help to fund my football bets. So all I will really say is all the talk of asking John to take a break etc etc is ridiculous it’s not your thread or site to make such decisions or suggestions so just let him and the many other regular guys tip and hopefully win. I’m also still looking forward to Johns thread (if still planning to do so) on how he goes about choosing his horses and gaining knowledge on trainers and tracks etc for me it’s a serious amount of knowledge needed and it would literally fry my brain lol. Best of luck going forward from a long term follower 😃

    Thanks guys. One tip for tomorrow from me, it’s short priced but looks a good bet.

    2.25 Leicester – Anda Dr Grissey at just over Evens.

    I’ll be going double stake on this. Down a couple classes, looks way ahead of the rest of the field on ratings. Very strange to see it dropped to this level, probably the trainer wanting to get a win and go from there. Handles heavy ground, hoping for a nice boom.

    I’m not bothered by it being evens, a winner is a winner and all increases the profit. Rather have a short priced winner, then a big priced loser at the end of the day. Good luck all.
