JOHNB was disappointed with his nap Blue Point yesterday but reckoned he run a really good race.
He says: “He didn’t settle early and was fighting William Buick for nearly the first two and a half furlong. When Buick asked he did show that good turn of pace but the early exertions have cost him dearly, coupled with The Last Lion running far better than he has before and think it’s safe to say he will not run that well again.
“All in all happy with the performance and he has beaten the rest convincingly, just surprised he has gone out in the 2000 Guineas betting as he wont be 100 per cent until next May.”
Johnb is now 1.43pts down for September and is hoping to claw it back on Sunday.

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.”
