Feb 3: Johnb’s Racing Tips & Chat

Racing_WilliamHill

JOHNB’S cracking start to February continued yesterday with a 10pt profit.

His nap/NB was a non-runner so again he had 2 points going on to his other tip Edgar who drifted to 5-1 to put our man 17pts up for the month.

Johnb’s Wednesday Tips

Kempton 6.10
Mezmaar 10-1 NAP Paddy Power

Ludlow 2.45
Belmount 13-2 NB Paddy Power, William Hill, bet365

Double 0.5 point each way
Mezmaar & Belmount 81.5-1 Paddy Power

Mezmaar (nap)

Ex Hamdan Al Maktoum horse who ran a credible 10th in the 2011 Coventry Stakes, he is a very lightly raced horse for an 8yo with only nine runs.

Clearly a horse who has had his problems, but looking at his last race two weeks ago at Kempton he showed signs that he still has what it takes, that run came after a break of 511 days,he was slowly into stride but did finish his race off well. It was his first run on the polytrack and he handled it really well.

The six furlongs was a bit sharp for him and this extra furlong will be better. Joe Fanning is on for the first time and I am hoping the trainer has gone for him because of his front running as I see this horse needing a good test of stamina and there is no better way of guaranteeing that than making it yourself. If Fanning gets this horse out in front I think they will struggle to catch him.

Fanning has 3 wins from 14 rides for Kevin Morgan but has been in the first three in 7 of those 14 rides
The 10-1 on this horse is still available but it’s too big a price.

    Not had much time but I’m going on the first at kempton.
    17:05 Wild flower 13/2
    Drop down in class. Good draw.

    Little Indian is currently the fave at 5/1 and the drop in trip may well do the trick.
    Good luck. Whatever your on.
    Thanks for the winner JB. Solid start to the month.

    Halo Moon won well last week but 11/10 a bit short for me so I’ll take a chance on Oil Burner 9/1,down to a nice weight on old form 3rd run for his new trainer ,good young claimer on board GL.

    Repost of last night.

    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.

    Great late run, almost won AW at Wolves.
    timeform
    3/1, won 9-runner handicap at this C&D 17 days ago, helped by being held up in strongly-run race. Has good chance on form.

    If having to put up with Richi Persad on channel 4 racing and The Morning Line wasn’t bad enough with his lack of knowledge not just for racing but for any sport, it looks like we will now have to listen to the someone even worse, if that’s possible when racing moves to itv, surely they wouldn’t degrade racing that much by having Jeremy Kyle presenting the show,
    Sadly for racing fans it’s very likely, he has been on Racing uk but was a joy lol, seemingly the two main requirements for the job are, liking the sport which I suppose does help and having a share in a horse,
    Itv could have quite easily got Matt Chapman but why get someone who is very knowledgeable about the sport, because that doesn’t matter much does it.

    Pain Au Chocolat, Carningli, Fort Smith and Amethyst Rose in the 14:35, 14:45, 15:35 and 15:45 at Newcastle, Ludlow, Leicester and Newcastle respectively with PaddyPower at odds of 1.33, 8.00, 7.00 and 17.00.

    Good luck all!

    PleSe tell me this is a badly timed April fools John. I can’t stand the idea of Jeremy Kyle getting near this sport. He’s a joke and will be even worse at getting the next generation into racing, and I am part of that generation.

    As for today:

    Nap 1.50 leic Alleyson monterg 11/10

    Bad price but should do the business.

        I ran into him at Cheltenham last year, when I say ran into I was in one of the hospitality tents and he happened to be in there as well. A sad day if it is true

          Heard about this on WH radio last week. Definately raised my eyebrow. Other suggestion was possibly John Inverdale.
          Ant and Dec might be in with a shout surely. They like horses. In fact. Away to send in my CV.

    Good morning all racing fans a 10/1 EW 3rd was the best I could get from 2 runners.

    6:40 Kempton “Cape Speed” 1/1 bet365 M Johnston / J Fanning combination and only runner.

    7:40 Kempton “Kristoff” 13/8 bet365 Just been run out of 1st place in previous races so drop back to 6f should be worth the bet.

      hamish75, I don’t have an opinion on this because I don’t watch racing on the TV but some of the comments are too personal.
      Let’s see if it happens and people can comment on his performance and not about the man himself.
      One thing I do know – he loves a bet and owns horses. He should come on here and see if he can give Johnb a run for his money.

    Hey folks,

    A value bet & a gamble for tomorrow. I know Cape Cross was low hanging fruit. But a win is a win. Though, if you are after low hanging fruit again tomorrow Semra at 7.10 Chelmsford is the ticket, but not tipping it here.
