IT was three points lost for JohnB on Friday so his profit for April now stands at a healthy 13 points.
He hopes he has landed the banker of all Aintree bankers on Saturday and it's a joint nap and NB so double stake.
JohnB's Saturday Tip
Buywise 9-4 NAP/NB Bet365 (double stake)
Good luck folks and post your own tips and chat here
This race looks really weak with 7 runners in my mind that just can't win. That leaves three horses – Buywise, Wonderful Charm, Vino Griego.
Wonderful Charm is trying a handicap for the first time but I think he is handicapped too high so I can't have him and the distance is a big worry.
Vino Griego would have been my tip if Buywise hadn't been running so that looks a good forecast
Buywise I have always liked but just simply hasn't been given a chance in his races which is why I am not a fan of Paul Maloney. Connections have also lost faith and decided to go with Adam Wedge which in my opinion is a major plus in this race.
Race after race Maloney would have Buywise so far back I would think he was running in the next race. The simple fact is that if Adam Wedge has Buywise up with the pace then he wins and wins comfortably rather than Paul Maloney having him 20 to 30 lengths behind the leaders.
I honestly think this would be a major shock if Buywise didnt win today and the 9-4 was far too big.
