IT was close but no cigar for Johnb on Tuesday with his double-stake tip beaten by half a length.
Our man is now 11pts down for January and hoping for better luck with his joint Nap/NB on Wednesday.
Johnb’s Wednesday Tips
Ran well last time and I am struggling to see why this horse hasn’t won for well over a year.
A slight concern is the jockey but this horse isn’t complicated and should finally be winning again.
Petite Jack 11-4 NAP/NB (double stake)
This horse is in good form at the moment but last time out was something special, sat at the back in a slow run race gives the horse virtually no chance but the way he quickened was a bit special and there has to be a lot more to come on that display, I do like the breeding as I am a fan of Champs Elysees

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.”
