Nov 14: Johnb’s Racing Tips & Chat

Racing_WilliamHill

JOHNB’S only Sunday selection was Special Tiara but it was neither special or shining.

It finished third at Cheltenham after being backed in from 3-1 to 2-1 so Johnb is 30.34pts down for the month. But he’s been there before and turned it around.

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.”

    Jimron.

    I thought defi du seauil was most impressive yesterday. And he likes soft ground so a big race around Xmas is probably next.
    Geraghty was apparently impressed and said there was plenty of fuel left in the tank.

    Thought thistlecracks jumping ranged from spectacular to almost suicidal during his race.
    If he is put under pressure by another front runner like coneygree he won’t get away with that sort of show jumping type of chasing when he is put under pressure in the gold cup.
    Saying that if he gets the run of the race he will likely win.
    If I was training something other than thistlecrack i would tell my jockey to try and ruffle thistlecracks feathers and see if his jumping holds up

      These races are really good clues for the festival countless times I’ve gone back to this meeting after the festival and thought how did I miss this!!!!

      I’ve trackered about 20 horses from the last 3 days 👍

        Turns out Willie Mullins and Rich Richi both wanted Annie Power to go chasing but it was Mrs Richi that said no way

      The thing with Thistlecrack is he actually looks a better jumper the faster they go,
      i am still really confident with Thistlecrack especially after the jump at the first open ditch, which might sound mad because it looked really bad but I can’t explain just how hard it is for a horse to stay up after that sort of jump but Scudamore didn’t even move on him, the horses balance was that good, the jockey said it’s like he is trying to test himself to see how far away he can be to still get over and as I said before he is intelligent and learns from mistakes

      I thought it was a really impressive performance

    Nothing that really takes my fancy so just a modest bet on MINELLA ON LINE 11/4 3.10 plum who drops back in trip for his first start for Oliver Sherwood. Sherwood has a respectible 3-7 strike rate with chasers at the track and its his only runner of the day.
    If he manages to come in ill have a nibble on Jimrons Black Mischief.

    Best of luck to all

    For anyone looking at Cheltenham for early bets I think you know how much I like Thistlecrack who was advised at 20/1
    That’s the sort of price I like for antepost bets 20/1+
    It’s difficult betting antepost for Cheltenham because we just don’t know where horses will go,
    Will Annie Power run in the Champion hurdle, World hurdle or Mares hurdle?
    Will Faugheen run in the Champion hurdle or World hurdle?
    Will Yorkhill stay hurdling or go chasing?
    Will Vroum Vroum Mag stay hurdling or go chasing?
    Those are four horses that should be winning at Cheltenham but we don’t know where they will be running

    What we do know is though, is that MIN will be running in the Arkle and although Altior is a short priced favourite, I can’t see Min getting beat

    Cheltenham Festival
    Arkle Trophy
    MIN 7/1 various bookies

    Or if you want to play safe
    Min 5/1 to win any race at the festival

    • Profile photo of elvis parsley
      elvis parsley 4 weeks ago

      is this the same min that got tanked by altior at Cheltenham last year ?
      min won 2 racesw at punchestown and beat nothing in thiose races at odds like 1-7 and rolled up mat Cheltenham as the next big thing, then lost comprehensively to altior.
      to come 2nd in the supreme novice is no mean feat though I grant that and he should be in the mix for A race as long as he avoids altior !

        Min is bred to be a chaser and a very good chaser, everything about the horse says chaser, I didn’t fancy the horse last year as it was a hurdle race and he hadn’t had many races but I think he will prove to be one of the best chasers Rich Richi will ever have

        Hurdle form should only be used to judge a horses chance in a chase if we know how much improvement a horse will have going chasing

      hi johnb i was told by one of the drivers from mullins yard that annie power is definitely going for the champion hurdle again

    only just over a month until the king George and wont it be great if this lot all turn up, the numbers are odds quoted by various bookies.
    interesting to see the old Kempton favourite sliviniaco conti quoted at 33-1, and as john has said thistlecrack is 7-2 for the gold cup, so why is he 6-1 for this ?????

    Morning all,

    Well done to all those who picked winners yesterday. I took a watching brief but was very impressed with moon racer whom I think may be the champion novice hurdler in waiting. The racing doesn’t look too bad today for a Monday, I have picked out 4 for small stakes:

    1.50 Musselburgh – Bassarabad 11/8 NAP

    While Bassarabad is short today I priced him up more around the 8/11 mark, therefore I will be having a nibble at 11/8 today. The application of a first visor worked wonders at Kelso last time as he came home to win by 2 lengths. He was up with the pace throughout and that could be the key to him following up today as I think it is vital to be up with the pace at musselburgh. While he also escapes a penalty and Richard Johnson takes over in the saddle- everything points to a big run!

    3.30 Newcastle – Tiger Jim 8/1 EW

    It has been a while since tiger Jim got his head in front but he keeps knocking on the door. His second at ayr last time looks like strong form (found himself in front too early) and he isn’t fully exposed on the all weather. I think the galloping nature of Newcastle will suit and at 8/1 I think he is a good each way bet.

    4.00 Newcastle – Rebel Surge 7/1 EW

    A chance is taken on rebel surge taking to the all weather today. This filly ran a great race at HQ last time going down by just over a length. She has been very highly tried this year and even took her chance in the sandringham. Yet, as she has failed to get her head in front she has been dropped nearly 10lbs since that ascot run, resulting in an attractive mark today. She has drifted back to around 7/1 this morning and at that price I am more than happy to have a few quid each way.

    4.30 Newcastle – Clubland 13/2 EW

    Clubland seems to be returning to form after a close second over c&d last time and this 7yo gelding looks very well handicapped on his best form. While this does look like a competitive contest clubland offers the best value by far around the 13/2 mark and I will be playing each way in the hope Jason hart can time his run to perfection.

    Thanks and GL to all

      I tipped it I fancied it as I always do, even though I doubted the horse would be 100% I still thought he would win and barring picking up an injury probably would have won because the horse wasn’t beaten far and was given a very easy time by Walsh

    How It Works: The Punter (with another bow to Ladybird Books)

    THE punter is one of the noblest members of the human race. He starts each day full of fresh enthusiasm and optimism. Today he is confident of success, despite what happened yesterday, when he was particularly unlucky.

    The punter is usually a man, women having less appreciation of the rewards of losing money.

    The punter lives on a higher plane than others. He does not concern himself with the rate of interest on savings nor on the state of pensions. He does not fiddle with coins in a purse, nor pore over a wallet. He carries his banknotes in his pockets, ready to be plucked out and thrust in a bookmaker’s direction.

    The punter has a generous spirit.

    As the sun rises, so do the punter’s hopes. He studies the racecard for the day, noting the horses, riders and trainers that have earned his respect and those that have earned his contempt.

    He recalls the pain associated with the letter F and the pleasure derived from the figure 1. He is content.The punter wishes that a trainer or jockey would confide their private opinions to him.

    He does not notice their frayed shirts, worn shoes and anxious foreheads.The punter visits a cash machine and begs it not to display a message reading “Refer to Bank.” He does not wish to refer to bank. No good can come of referring to bank.

    He arrives at the afternoon with confident, fearless anticipation and money in his pocket.The punter writes down the names of favoured horses. There are decisions to be made about horses, combinations of horses, stakes and arrangements for watching the horses, perhaps in a betting shop.

    The punter has a set of earplugs. They are to reduce the noise pollution from the gaming machines and the heartless voice of a commentator announcing the fall of the punter’s banker.

    The punter sits comfortably on his seat; the Racing Post sits with him.

    So much is dependent on luck. As the afternoon wears on, merging seamlessly into the twilight at Chelmsford, the punter sings to himself. “Born under a bad sign, I been down since I began to crawl. If it wasn’t for bad luck, I wouldn’t have no luck at all.”

    The punter’s selections were sound but the riding performances of those entrusted with the punter’s hopes and financial solvency were woefully wanting.

    The punter consults other punters. They agree that a certain jockey is a disgrace, as are certain other jockeys, as are certain trainers. Harsh words are voiced, some rather unseemly.

    Among fellow punters, neither the stewards nor the photofinish equipment are universally admired.

    The day’s racing over, the punter rues various episodes that afflicted his afternoon. For the Lord was angry, he reflects, and did cause the horses he backed to be beaten. The punter vows to give up punting. He goes to bed.

    The next morning the punter is full of fresh enthusiasm and optimism.

      and for what its worth I wouldn’t have it any other way yes there have been bad days but the good times make up for them… granted they are sometimes few and far between but punting is a way of life.
