Jan 11: Johnb’s Racing Tips & Chat


IT was a 1pt profit for Johnb on Tuesday after his double-stake tip took the honours at Southwell.

Our man is now 18.75pts down for January and has another joint Nap/NB among his Wednesday picks.

Johnb’s Wednesday Tips

Hereford 2:20
Gino Trail 13-8 NAP/NB betfred(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.

Newcastle 2:30
Mesophere 13-8 bet365

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.

Double 5.56/1 bet365

Antepost Tips

  • 1000 Guineas 2017 – PROMISE TO BE TRUE 20-1 Betfred (now 25-1)
  • 2000 Guineas 2017 – CHURCHILL 20-1 bet365 (now 6-4)
  • 2017 Derby – CHURCHILL 33-1 Racebets (now 7-1)
  • 2000 Guineas 2017 – BLUE POINT 14-1 racebets (now 33-1)

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.”

    Raving black 2-20 Hereford NAP 2-1.
    Barring jumping errors, which can happen given his aggressive front running style I fancy him to win on chasing debut as he looks like a chaser in the making to me.
    I saw him in the flesh running 2 lengths 2nd to the new one at haydock this time last year and was impressed with that run, none of these would get within 10 lengths of the new one.
    He also gets a stone pull in the weights with gino trail and 11 pounds of zamdy man.
    I would fancy him off level weights to he honest, but my judgement may be clouded as raving is one of my favourite horses.

    Been taking a trip down memory lane, hard to believe this was over 23 years ago, i backed this horse Oh So Risky at 66/1 all the way down to 16/1 was 11/1 on the day, it would have been my biggest pay day ever but for a slow start, but the ground he made up in the last three furlongs was unbelievable and with the late, great Pat Eddery onboard,
    Two years before this Oh So Risky had won the Triumph Hurdle at Cheltenham

        8k although Oh So Risky would have netted over 250k as I had been backing the horse for six months but that’s racing

    I posted this up last night and have now added write ups:

    It really was a case of looking the gift horse in the mouth on Tuesday with Wick Powell proving he was “too” good to be true. They seemed to go to quick for him and a return to 6f is needed I think. He unfortunately downed my increased stakes bet but Missed Approach did at least save some face doing the job at 2/1 for small money. Two small selections for tomorrow.

    14.30 Newcastle – Bowban 2/1

    Wolverhampton to Newcastle form has been working quite well in recent weeks and Bowban can continue that run. He made a good impression on debut at Wolvs back on the 27th December, he ran pretty green and seemed lost once the pace quickened 2F out but the penny dropped late on and he ran on strongly in the final furlong- finishing 3rd. The slight step up in trip is sure to suit today and with that experience under his belt he can go two places better this afternoon. The two Gosden runners take a big chunk out of the market and while they are both feared Bowban can progress pas them both. The recent form of Brian Ellison has been good and at around 2/1 Bowban rates as value in my early book (1.5 pnts).

    Bowban can now be backed at 3/1 this morning- looks very fair to this punter!

    3.20 Hereford – Money Maid 4/1 EW

    How often can you say the words: “the handicapper has been very generous”- the answer is not very often! Nevertheless, this looks to be the case with Money Maid in the 3.20. Money Maid comes from a form line that I am following with great interest. Last time out this horse was beaten by a neck by Two Smoking Barrels at Wetherby and he may have even won barring a last flight blunder. Two Smoking Barrels beat my winning selection the other day I Just Know (I have actually put that horse up 3 times now) by 2 lengths back in early December. The form of the races I Just Know has run in has been very strong in recent weeks and was massively franked on Monday after I Just Know romped home. Therefore, with the handicapper allowing Money Maid to run off the same mark today as his run last time out he is definitely worth an investment today. The slight step up in trip is expected to suit and the soft ground will be fine. At 4/1 last night I backed him each way (0.75 pnts each way).

    After Andy Holding has tipped up Money Maid this morning his price is now 100/30 but I still think there is value in those odds.

    Other bets:

    It’s very rare that I suggest backing multiples but at the current prices this morning 3/1 and 100/3 I am going to be investing in each way double on today’s selections at 16.33/1 (0.75 pnts each way) as I would be disappointed if they both don’t make the frame.

    Many Thanks and GL to all

      I think Bowban bumped into one here but still ran really well- keep your eyes on him!

      Let’s hope Money Maid wins if not places for the double.
