JOHNB’S tough start to June continued on Wednesday with no winners and four points lost.
It’s now a nine-point deficit for the month and once again our man has a joint nap and NB among his Thursday picks.
Johnb’s Thursday Tips
Overlord 15-8 NAP/NB Skybet
Overlord & Sublimation 12.75-1 Skybet
This horse was a different class from his 2yo races when returning at Thirst but the jockey that day left him far too much to do and he just cantered into 4th.
Last time out he was given just as easy a run but this time he was close enough and the jockey didn’t really have to ask him to win.
Richard Hughes on today and the rise in weights shouldn’t matter to a horse that is still so far ahead of the handicapper.
