JOHNB was out of luck on Sunday on Sunday, losing 3pts after his Nap blew the chance of victory.
Our man, now 0.23pts up heading into the final day of the month, says: “All it takes is one mistake for a horse to lose all chance of winning over the jumps and Sunday’s Nap Keppel Isle made a huge mistake 3 out and I can’t believe he managed to stay up.
“He was cruising at that point but had nothing left after that mistake, the jockey asked for another big jump but the horse decided he wanted to put in another half stride, but jumping is the name of the game.”

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.”
