He’s back with a double for Tuesday and I wish him luck.

Well done to all the winners on the thread and keep posting your tips and thoughts.

CHURCHILL 33-1 (now 20-1) racebets

2000 Guineas 2017

BLUE POINT 14-1 racebets

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.”

    Evening all,

    Today was a disappointing day, it started badly with Bassarabad who jumped poorly throughout and faded badly into a well beaten 2nd, followed by Tiger Jim who then ran a very poor race at newcastle. Rebel surge did provide some respite finishing 3rd at 10/1 but then clubland had no luck in the 4.30 being blocked in for well over a furlong and staying on strongly at the end. Tuesday provides a opportunity for my first increased stakes bet in over a week, plus two others for a small wager.

    1.15 Southwell – Churchtown Champ 11/8 NAP

    Churchtown champ looks an outstanding bet at 11/8 (I have him priced up much shorter). He ran an outstanding race last time behind feyette county (ran well at cheltenham latest) at Worcester. He jumped beautifully throughout the race and I think he may have won if he wasn’t constantly squeezed on the outside from 4 out, after which Harry steklton switched him and he ran on only going down by a head. Today looks like a perfect opportunity to make amends, this big scopey type allways looked like a chaser in the making and while he was tried at grade 2 level over hurdles it is not surprising connections have made the move to fences quickly. The ground shall be fine and although he has a 4lb rise to deal with today I think that this horse is open to bags of improvement. 11/8 looks like a value price and I expect him to go off much shorter. I will be increasing my stakes for this bet! (but as always nothing is assured)

    1.35 Fakenham – Queen Spud 5/2

    Fakenham is somewhat of a specialist course, therefore a chance is taken on course expert queen spud today. The 7yo mare is 3/3 at the course and after a brave win last time there is every chance she can follow up today over this longer trip. She travels like longer should suit and if able to get bowling along in front she may be hard to peg back. She will however need to brush up on her jumping so I will only be having a small interest.

    1.55 Lingfield – Gorokai 5/1 EW

    The switch back to the all weather can lead to gorokai getting his head back in front again. His record on the surface speaks for itself and while he wasn’t discrased on the turf the last few times I have always felt it didn’t really suit him. He likes to come late in his races and last time at goodwood on softish ground he got bogged down and could never reach top gear. He remains on a workable mark and If you take the turf runs out of equation he would have been shorter for this race today. While I am not a fan of Spencer he does love a hold up horse so hopefully he can time it right and deliver gorokai into the winners enclosure.

    Thanks and GL all

    Most people will know my previous encounter with This up and coming 3 year old!

    Noticed Flint has one of
    His own running aswell following a similar pattern of poor runs reduced weights so will have a small interest in Taroum 1.05

    Also like queen spud 1.35 course specialist and still looks in form

    Treble on them just incase 👍

      Jimron,

      High mark is very intresting with Goldolfin going very well in maidens!

      John Fergurson has worked wonders again!

      Best of luck.

        I would be interested to know what John Ferguson has done, he has underperformed for so many years at Godolphin, their operation is bigger than Ballydoyle but is so far behind Ballydoyle it’s embarrassing to be associated with Godolphin,
        So many aspects of the Godolphin operation are wrong but could be very easily fixed

        • Profile photo of jimron12
          jimron12 3 weeks ago

          I agree godopphin are not what they should be by any means but should still be powerful enough to be mopping a race like this so late into the year!

          • Profile photo of harryjw
            harryjw 3 weeks ago

            Yes I couldn’t agree more godolphin are huge underachievers. But who ever was purchasing their blood stock while John Fergurson was off training has a lot to answer for, as there last few years have been the worse in memory. 2 years ago (I think) they sold 2 group 1 producing broodmares in the end of season sales. The operation has been badly ran for years but at least John Fergurson seems to have brought around stability again. It’s about time to operation was scaled back but whom ever oversees it needs a good eye for horses.

            One thing I can’t understand is there reluctance to use certain bloodlines they spend so much money on blood stock but seem very reluctant to buy Galileos and have said they will not purchase any frankle offspring. I understand pride before a fall…but come on.

            • Profile photo of Johnb
              Johnb 3 weeks ago

              John Ferguson was advising on the Bloodstock while training and has been for over 30 years, the state of Godolphin is the fault of two people, the boss and his lap dog, the sheikh and Ferguson
              His way doesn’t work anymore, he isn’t prepared to move with the times

              Then you have Michael Tabor the heart of Ballydoyle Coolmore, businessman, bookie and punter,
              There isn’t anything to do with horses he doesn’t know and his knowledge of breeding is second to none

    Ive noticed that quite a few SP FAVS in the opening races at each meeting lately that have gone in so i decided to do a bit of maths and see actually how many and what profit if any would it bring.
    Im probably barking up the wrong tree long term but i said id take a look anyway.
    NOT including today, there have been 59 races this month so far with the SP FAV winning on 34 occasions which is a 62.7% strike rate yielding a profit of 39.25 for a 1 euro stake. Pretty decent figures, so i took it a bit further tonight and looked at the month of Oct. and of the 153 races 72 SP FAV’s won yielding a profit of 25.40 for a 1 euro stake. I would like to take this further and split flat and NH and will probably do so when i have a bit more time as when gathering the info i could notice certain patterns with the flat being a lot less consistent than NH and now that the flat season is over except AW, it may become more consistent. Its probably just coincidence as if it was that easy then it would have been noticed before now and surely it cant be that easy to make a profit but as im curious about this ill keep it going until the end of the month and see how it fares out.

      Dc I looked into this a Few years back started Doing a Yankee/round robin on the them first races of the day it was did end up Being profitable but not massively didn’t do it religiously and kind of stopped it. Be interesting to have a look back into it as if I remember I did it in the summer (flat)…

      To be honest Godolphin need someone like me but because I have a reputation of speaking my mind and the Sheikh wouldn’t like me telling him to butt out,
      I have recently advised on the purchase of a horse for a customer and also advised them on race planning for one of their other horses

      The saying has always been “there is a race out there for every horse to win”
      I know I can find that race

          lol I do what it says on the tin
          I do what I have said from day one
          From day one I have said I guarantee yearly profits,
          Others try, they come and go saying they will keep track of profit/losses but always end up giving up,

          The three years I have been on here have all been profits, every year has had at least one antepost winner of at least 20/1
          If you just take into account the five classics on the flat then every year has had one winner at a minimum 25/1

    Hold that wheelbarrow.
    There was nothing wrong with Dan Skelton’s charge run on chase/seasonal debut at Worcester, just touched off by Fayette County with the first three miles clear. However, the winner did nothing for the form next time and there was an impression at the time that it was muddling form in a small field. He has experience of jumping in the book, but now meets some very promising rivals who have potential to go onto better things over fences, and simply looks far too short at around the 5/4 mark on betfair.

    Alanm,

    Intresting points of view Alan. I am of course not recommending anyone take a wheelbarrow of cash to Churchtown champ only stating I will increase my bet.

    I personally thought Fayette county ran a very good race coming 3rd a Cheltenham.

    It is an opinions game at the end of the day and you very well might be right.

    Either way I wish you the best of luck tomorrow.
