Jun 3: Johnb’s Racing Tips & Chat


IT wasn’t to be for Johnb on Thursday with both his tips finishing third.

So it was 3pts lost for our man who is now 6pts down for June.

John’s Friday Tips

Epsom 2.35
What About Carlo 11-2 NB racebets

Alcatraz 6-1 NAP racebets

What About Carlo & Alcatraz 44.5-1 racebets

Johnb says: “No bet in today’s Oaks and it’s a pity we don’t have So Mi Dar running because with the doubts surrounding Minding I think she would have been favourite now.
I have already said that any of these could win the Oaks and also said a few days ago that AUSTRALIAN QUEEN would be my pick and she is available at 66-1.”

    Ryan Moores Derby analysis

    The Derby

    The first thing to say about the Derby is that the race is run at 4.30pm on Saturday afternoon, and the track can dry out very quickly if there has been no rain for a day or so, so bear that in mind. Obviously it is a big-field Derby, so the draw will be important for a number of reasons; how you start, the horses that are around you, and the position you get. But you deal with it.

    Across The Stars: I rode him on his debut, and when he won his maiden at heavy odds-on this season. Looked a little unlucky when third in the Lingfield Derby Trial, and is a progressive stayer who is sure to be suited by a stronger-run race. But I don’t think he will be good enough here.

    Algometer: Second to me on Midterm in the Sandown Classic Trial and ground it out well at Goodwood. The trip will obviously be no problem, nor will the rain earlier in the week, but class probably will be. Looks more of a St Leger type.

    Biodynamic: Credible enough runs at Newmarket and Chester, but next to no chance from what I can see.

    Cloth Of Stars: Is probably more priced up on who trains him to be honest, rather than on form, but that is not necessarily a bad thing as Andre Fabre is a genius and I never underestimate anything he sends over. I rode Idaho in the race he finished second to Robin Of Navan last season and although he has obviously improved this season, I wasn’t particularly impressed by his win in the Greffulhe last time. I thought it was a weak race. But he will stay, handle cut and, like I say, is trained by a master.

    Deauville: I think the recent rain has gone against him, even if he did win on heavy ground on his debut, so he is one horse that wants the ground to dry up quickly. But he ran a better trial than most in here when an excellent second for me in the Dante, and I felt that he would come on for that run, too. On form, he has a leading chance, and that chance gets better on drying ground over this trip.

    Harzand: I rode Cook Islands to finish fourth to him and Idaho in the Ballysax, and you had to be pretty impressed with him there. And clearly the rain earlier this week is a big plus to his chances. But I’m pretty sure that Pat (Smullen) said after the race that he would be worried about this big individual not being ideally suited to Epsom. And initial impressions are often the most telling.

    Humphrey Bogart: Has form on the track – a good second to So Mi Dar – and he did it well enough at Lingfield. Has a few positives, but the necessary class to win a Derby probably isn’t one, and I can’t see him winning this, to be honest.

    Idaho: I rode him as a juvenile, and he looked a stayer in both the Ballysax and the Derrinstown last time, and I get the impression there is plenty more to come from him stepping up in trip. I think a lot of the Irish horses from the Derrinstown are evenly-matched, though, and it is simply a matter who improves the most for the step up in trip.

    Massaat: Probably brings the strongest form to the table here with his Guineas second, but he hasn’t struck me as a stayer, to be honest.

    Moonlight Magic: I can see him running well, and he is certainly bred for the job. But he may just have got the run of the race when winning the Derrinstown and, as I said, I don’t think you can be confident about who will come out best of the first three home from that race here, let alone winning the Derby. But he is a player, for sure.

    Port Douglas: He looks a rock-solid horse. I haven’t ridden him but the merit of his second to US Army Ranger was there for all to see at Chester, especially as he was giving me 4lb. I wouldn’t underestimate him as we know that he stays and already has the form to take a hand. The blinkers replace the cheek pieces, but he wore those when he won the Beresford, so I wouldn’t be worried about that.

    Red Verdon: I rode him when he won off a mark of 80 at Chester last month, and he followed up in good style at Haydock next time, although that looked a pretty weak handicap. Stays and is improving and I can see why they have supplemented him in an open year. It is hard to really see him winning, though, but he could run a similar race to Red Galileo in this race a couple of years ago, I suppose. This is a big ask, though.

    Shogun: Ran well enough in the Irish Guineas last time but he will be much better suited by this trip on the evidence of his Derrinstown second, where he was just getting going for me at the finish. But soft ground would be an issue for him, so drying conditions would be a big plus. The blinkers that he wore last time are off and he certainly moved and travelled ok for me without them in the Derrinstown.

    Ulysses: I have a lot of time for this horse, I always have, but I think it has maybe happened a bit too late for him. He has plenty of questions to answer after just winning what looked, and rode like, a modest maiden at Newbury, but he is certainly bred for the job and is one of the many in here who could step forward massively. I haven’t sat on him at home since that maiden win – and he did win it impressively, I accept that – but the boss seems happy enough with him. He is a colt of great potential; it’s just a matter of whether this race is coming too soon in his education.

    US Army Ranger: Unbeaten, bred for the job and won’t mind whatever the ground throws at him. And he did travel well and give me a really good feel when winning the Chester Vase. Again, one of the many potential improvers in here – and he needs to improve, obviously – and I am happy to be riding him.

    Wings Of Desire: Arguably the most solid horse in a race full of unknowns. Good winner of a good trial, and will be suited by going back up in trip. Quite obviously, there is a lot to like about his chances.
    In summary this is a very hard race to call, and an incredibly open Derby. I genuinely wouldn’t be surprised if any one of eight won it, maybe more, as we are dealing with lightly-raced, middle distance colts, most of whom are unexposed and ready to take a big step forward. There are several in here who could stick their hand up on Saturday afternoon. Let’s hope I am on the one who sticks it up the highes

    Good Afternoon.

    Well Graham Gibbons is off my Christmas card list after his ride on my nap yesterday, I was told that he gave up good rides elsewhere so he could ride that one.

    Thanks for nothing …

    Anyway moving swiftly on … I see that Frankel’s first daughter Queen Kindly makes her debut for Richard Fahey at Catterick.

    Cant really find anything in the Oaks other than to lay minding at the shortest price and have to rest of the field running for me. I did look at the money coming for the Channon horse but notice he must be boardering the cold list with only 1/37 in the last two weeks.

    My Bets …

    3:00 Catterick – Show Palace (NB)
    7:30 Bath – Sweet Dragon Fly (NAP)
    7:50 Goodwood – Links Drive Lady (each way)

    C’ Ya

      Struggling to see what Graham Gibbons did wrong on Arrowtown yesterday,
      The horse never traveled he got caught on the inside but pulled the horse out at the earliest opportunity he got but the winner had already got first run,
      It wasn’t run at a good pace which didn’t suit Arrowtown but there was nothing Graham Gibbons could have done in the race, he couldn’t make his move earlier because he did pull the horse out as early as he could,
      The horse was drawn well to get out for the short run to the first bend but Arrowtown jinked left coming out the stalls which meant he was slow away and as I said earlier the horse never really traveled after that

      Taking everything into account I thought Graham Gibbons gave the horse a good ride

    Miss Van Gogh……from Richard Fahey yard the 4yo ran 20 days ago at Doncaster 1m2.1/2f in EBF Breeders’ Series Fillies’ Fine & Country Handicap where she finished 4th could make no impression in final furlong , Hopefully that was prep race for today as she comes back to her successful distance of a mile winning 5 times over that distance but was disqualified at Hamilton where she hung left and took other horse over with her and was placed 2nd with Lil Sophella getting the race, She also won at 7f in her early days on track , Jockey Paul Hanagan comes back in to ride after Adam McNamara rode it in last race , Paul been successful in all three rides on horse
