Johnb’s Wednesday Tips
Gino Trail 13-8 NAP/NB (double stake)
Not bad form this horse for a ten year old and there was no fluke about his last run when he was beat by Buveur D’Air and he was even giving 6lb to the 3-10 favourite, Buveur D’Air is actually third favourite for the Arkle at Cheltenham but as I said it was no fluke as had already had two good wins this season and I would be surprised if anything could get close to him.
Handled this surface well on debut when a decent fourth, looked one paced but ran on again late on when the penny dropped, up another three furlongs today which will help and clearly the one to beat.

Johnb says: “I have already advised Churchill for next year’s 2000 Guineas & Derby – he has been really impressive this season and my view is he will get even better next year.
“Blue Point on the other hand is harder to call for how he will progress next year. If he trains on then in my view it’s a straight fight between Blue Point & Churchill but in the Derby Churchill is the only horse for me – he gives me the same excitement as Golden Horn did.
“But to answer my question earlier the most impressive horse I have seen this year is BLUE POINT with Churchill and Annie Power a close second and third.”
