May 1: Johnb’s Racing Tips & Chat


JOHNB ended April in stunning style on Saturday with his 25-1 antepost pick Galileo Gold claiming a memorable win in the 2000 Guineas.

Our man says: “There are some things in racing I don’t know but have just found out that winning in the Stanford family is shared between all family members.

“Lulu Stanford’s mother was today in charge of Galileo Gold, looking after the horse before racing and leading him back in after he won. So thankyou Jane Stanford you did a great job with the horse.”

Johnb’s daily tips finished 26.1pts down for April but it’s important to remember it’s all about long-term profit for our man who is still well in the black for the year thanks to his marvellous March of 250pts profit.

          mgreen68, good to hear. Some good lads on there and if they do well so do punters and that’s what matters.
          I stopped visiting because sometimes there were more comments directed at this site than anything else – but I’ve learned to let it go.

    Good morning all, before I post my tips massive well done to John for yesterday I hadn’t backed the horse antipost but had it in a trixie and managed to get another winner with it at 8/1 so a very nice profit was made.
    I don’t now how you can pick horses antipost for big races like that but you certainly have the knack so great tipping.

    Not a great day of racing to bet today but a few horses that I fancy so here’s my tips been in good form lately so looking to keep it going

    NB victors bet 5:35 Salisbury 9/2

    Kesslering 6/1 4:25 Salisbury

    Waters meet 13/2 Newmarket 1:50

    And my NAP for today is Swiss range 4:50 Newmarket 15/8 (sorry Same as johns but I can’t oppose it)

    Only having small bets today but a better single on my nap. Another newcomer of interest to me today that wouldn’t have to be too special to win and is a decent price is Ebony and Ivory in the 1:35 sailisbury. At 7/1 and on the drift I’ll be having my there off and running bet on that one. Good luck to all for today and thanks again to John and the guys for the winners

    Hats off to John B for delivering yesterday in the big one, well done.

    100% agree with AlanM about Barkston Ash, ticks all the boxes today and I see a huge plunge on the trainers other horse King of Paradise as well. Looks like payday for Mr. Alston up at Hamilton today.

    My selections today:

    1:50 Newmarket – Oceanographer NAP
    2:45 St Coud – Air Pilot each way

    Ballydoyle each way in the Guineas

    The place pot at Newmarket yesterday paid over 16 grand, I think I am going to stick all the Newmarket tips you people have posted on here and have a go.

    I will buy you all a drink later.

    Good Luck Everyone.

      • Profile photo of sheldy365
        sheldy365 1 year ago

        Only reason I picked it was because it is two from two under that jockey( now 3 from 3) it had won off 10lbs higher in previous times and it prefers turf. Luckily it proved to be right well timed late surge from the jockey though great ride .

    John, nothing will stop Jack tomorrow unless he gets a bad break. With Jack been such a strong bridle horse, one would hope Tudhope wont kick for home to early.

    • Profile photo of Johnb
      Johnb 1 year ago

      Wouldn’t mind him going early as you don’t rely on luck to get the gaps, we would have to be really unlucky for the horse to find trouble again

      • Profile photo of the notorious
        the notorious 1 year ago

        Absolutely John. We don’t want a mess like the last time. I just get the impression having watched the race numerous times, that this horse gets lonely in front. I basing this theory on how the jockey rode this horse, aside from running into trouble.

  50. Profile photo of

    if johnb and theplug are both strong on jackbequick this must surely be a good bet tomorrow. few extra pennies on for me than usuall. well done all winners today
