Jan 9: Johnb’s Racing Tips & Chat

Racing_WilliamHill

JOHNB enjoyed a 1.5pt profit on Friday as he made it three out of three with his double-stake tips this year.

He came mightily close to a full house with his other tip only beaten by a horse and January is now a 5.08pt profit.

Johnb’s Saturday Tips

Lingfield 1:55
Perfect Alchemy 10-3 NAP william hill

Kempton 3:10
Grandads Horse 12-1 NB william hill bet365

Double
Perfect Alchemy & Grandads Horse 55.33-1 william hill

Perfect Alchemy (NAP)

I though his last three runs were decent, she showed signs there was something to work with. This race today is at Lingfield which will suit the horse more, although Kempton is also Polytrack it is deeper and not as fast as Lingfield.

Problem with that is Perfect Alchemy has been held up a lot mainly because she sometimes isn’t the quickest out of the stalls but with today’s jockey Oisin Murphy we have a tactically better jockey than the horse has had recently. He is in my opinion better at reading races and he will get the best out of the horse.

On form she has a chance but with the improvement Oisin can provide she has a great chance.

    Both each way.
    As I’m sure most of you know, this is a tough race to call. Very competitive, and will be one hell of a slog in very testing conditions. Unlikely too many horses will finish.
    good luck all over the weekend

    I honestly think the Welsh National this year is the hardest to solve for the last 10 years
    In my opinion it’s a no bet race and I won’t be having a bet, but I do understand that people like a bet in the big races.
    This year I could probably pick 10 horses and not find the winner but I have tried to narrow it down and come up with three horses

    TOUR DES CHAMPS 14/1 e/w bet365 hills coral

    WOODFORD COUNTY 16/1 e/w paddy power boylesports

    CHASE THE SPUD 40/1 e/w bet365 Stan James

    Now the question is which order I think they will come so here goes

    I agree John – I wish they did more analysis. They just prattle on about nothing. Fantastic tipping yesterday Barye was so impressive and other horse looked the winner from a long way out and was so unlucky to get mugged on the line.

    I even contacted itv to suggest a sports program that combined Racing, Football and other sports on that day that concentrates on analysis and tips
    I mentioned people they should get and not just to transfer straight from channel 4
    Sadly though we will just see the same faces that we see now
    John McCririck isn’t one of my favourites but credit where credits due, he did speak his mind

    • Profile photo of Johnb

      It is frustrating but bets can be cancelled
      Ante-post bets for re-arranged races will still count but they do state that in the case of a re-arranged race ante-post bets can be cancelled by mutual agreement as long as there is sufficient notice given “in other words before a horse is pulled out”

      I have found bookies to be helpful this way

    Do you know much about Bob Ford JB? For some reason its just sticking out at me every time I look at the race….

    • Profile photo of Johnb
      Johnb 11 months ago

      I couldn’t put you off Bob Ford as he ticks a lot of boxes but I would be concerned about the course, I know he has won a couple of times here but he has had the race to suit being a front runner,
      This race is always run at a fast pace even in heavy ground and front runners/up with the pace horse have a good record for being placed
      But I worry he won’t be as effective being challenged for the lead round here and he could make mistakes

      But as I sai he does tick a lot of boxes

    One of my 11 horses to avoid had to win the Welsh National, with the majority of the 11 being the fancied horses in the betting it was always going to be a big ask but well done for anyone that backed it but still say it wasn’t a race to bet on

    • Profile photo of
      11 months ago

      Thats easy to say if you didnt bet on the race John if you bet the winner at 12s like me because you fancied it for various reasons yes its was a pretty small stake for me but i would say it was a race to bet on.
      You picked out 3 horses that were not placed and advised against a handful not to bet with 1 of them winning and another placed so your obviously going to back up your statement it was a no bet race for me it was a betting race and i would imagine loads others but just smaller stakes.

    stevieg if it’s smaller stakes then you just prove its a no bet race & betting for an interest because you weren’t totally convinced
    It doesn’t matter if someone fancies an even money horse or a 100/1 horse it should still be level stakes, that’s how money is made

    One of the many reasons people don’t make a profit is because they try and adjust their stake for different horses

  67. Profile photo of
    11 months ago

    Av said it before Johnb i dont use level stakes i use a point system on how much i fancy a horse and how easy i think the race is av been betting seriously for over 25 years and make a good profit so please dont try and tell me my system does not work.
    I can see plenty flaws in your system but a’m not going to tell you it doesnt work for you.
    Smaller stakes for me certainly does not mean a’m betting for an interest i go to horse racing alot and watch all races every day for me it means its alot harder race to win i would never give the bookies my money just to watch a race.
