Oct 31: Johnb’s Racing Tips & Chat


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.”

      hash brown won all 4 of his races between august and October and won this very race last year, carries only 1 pound more today with same jockey at a similar price. geraghty won on him last year and is on him for the 1st time since today.
      in fact he has ran twice before in October and won both so this could be a nice October hat trick
      horse had a nice run out last month when 3rd of 13 at navan.

      aranhill chief was 3rd in this last year and might scrape a place again as he goes ok at this track, winning twice here at 14-1

      Mount Vesuvius looks a decent price in red orator race and might be an ew shout at 8-1.
      3 pound better off for neck defeat to red orator in august.
      Saying that mount Vesuvius hasn’t exactly erupted in his 3 races since !

      The comment is nothing to do with mr f, it was me johnb that posted it and no offence but I respect my own judgment at the horses and although nobody will ever know what would have happened my expert opinion puts me on the side of Keppel Isle but as I say we will never know

    My only bet today is going to be an each way bet. I have been told that red rannagh is a real danger in this race.. Jamie Spencer tried his usual hold him up tactics but made a meal out of it and the owners asked for Shane Kelly to ride the horse this time as he has one of the best hands in the business according to Richard Hughes. At 8/1 it’s worth a dabble.

    I have a 2 dogs running this afternoon both at Monmore they are both trap 1 dogs in the 2.07 and the 3.08.

    I have a massive bet on tonight’s dog it runs in the 7.48 at Notts it’s trap 2 and get evens or above take it.

    sorry i thought it was mrf ,but in my opinion he did not loose a whole lot of momentum when he hit the flight,. horse was not good enough johnb.

      Best wishes to jockeys involved in accident today fingers crossed they make full recovery. Racing can be dangerous sport these guys risk there lives every day.

    • Profile photo of Johnb
      Johnb 7 months ago

      It was only the horses quick reactions that stopped him from falling, not many horses could have survived a mistake like that, it was only the second last flight and Keppel Isle had taken a length lead going into the flight and was still travelling well, we see how much that mistake took out of the horse because the jockey was having to push the horse just after the jump, my view is that the horse would only have gone further clear but we will never know

        elvis parsley 7 months ago

        Does it really matter.
        Records will show the winner won, and bookies don’t pay out on hard luck stories.
        Pointless debate if you ask me.
        Though if the runner up was unlucky its something to bear in mind for future reference if it was possibly a false result.

      I think garde le victoire is over priced at 2-1, should be about evens for me and when I get back from Hereford will be having a dabble at that price.
      Good luck punterpounder and good stuff today with your 3 from 4 winners

    1.5pt profit Monday

    Tuesdays Tips

    Already Advised
    Melbourne Cup
    Big Orange 14/1 NAP/NB bet365 (double stake)

    Galahad 7/2 skybet

    0.5pt eachway Double 51/1 bet365

    The money has come for a few horses in the Melbourne Cup with Big Orange one of them, now a best price 11/1 bet365 and as low as 7/1
    He wouldn’t want too much rain and although it’s to rain most of the day it’s not meant to get that heavy and the track should be able to take it.
    Also the best horses can still win when things don’t go their way,
    Expect Big Orange to try and make all, yes even with Jamie “hold up” Spencer onboard,
    Last year he also tried to make all and gave the horse a breather down the back straight which he won’t do this year,
    Michael Bell says that now they know this horse needs a strongly run two mile race they don’t need to give the horse a breather and can also kick for home a lot earlier,

    My top 4 horses

    1st Big Orange
    2nd Almandin
    3rd Bondi Beach
    4th Hartnell

      Looking forward to seeing how this one goes.

      In regards to the tips are you just tipping a single on Galahad and the each way double? So 2 points staked, or are you re-staking Big Orange? Cheers

      • Profile photo of Johnb
        Johnb 7 months ago

        No just the two points advised on Big Orange last week and 1pt Galahad and 1pt on the double so yes just the 2pts advised tonight
