THERE was no joy for JohnB on Friday and attention now turns to Saturday.

Our man's profit for April stands at 3.5pts ahead of the weekend action where he's hoping to get back among the winners.

Saturday's Tips

Newbury 1:15
Mahsoob 10/3 Bet365

Ayr 4:25
Gilt Shaddow 5/2 NB Betfred

Thirsk 5:40
Meshardal 9/2 William Hill

Nottingham 5:55
Lahayeb 5/2 NAP Bet365

JohnB says: ‘For the first time ever I am also advising a yankee on these four.
0.25 point yankee taken as a 25p yankee would cost £2.75 and four winners would pay £157.77 at Bet365.

‘Also the normal 1 point on all 4 as singles. This will be 6.75 points staked which is more than i like doing but i do like these today.'

Earlier in the week JohnB advised his Scottish Grand National tip which is:

    Morning all

    Cant sleep so putting up my selections now as im sure i will fall asleep later.

    NAP I SHOT THE SHERIFF 4/1 2.35 ayr
    as i said on yesterdays thread his official rating in ireland is 146 but runs here off 133 so hopefully he can take advantage

    NB BIRDMAN 4/1 2.10 thirsk
    Has joined o’meara’s yard and also been dropped 23lbs so again hopefully can take advantage

    LAHAYEB 5/2 5.55 notts
    Claimer takes off most of the 8lbs shes been raised and drops down a grade.

    NEWBURY 3.25 bronze angel,gabriel,jacks revenge, buckstay, boom and bust and mister music.
    No im not going for 6 horses in the same race but if the pattern of the last 4 years continues again today then 1 of these horses will win this race as the last 4 winners ran in either the lincoln or the spring mile. Food for thought.
    The one im going for is mister music in the hope that he improves for his run. Hes been dropped 2lbs and robert eddery has 2 wins from last 3 runners. 33/1 was available but ive only managed to get 20/1 so a small ew interest.

    Scottish National
    Galant Oscar

    Thats it from me for today

    Best of luck to all

  6. Kendog 3 years ago

  8. Alex 3 years ago

    Good morning from the sunny island of Rhodes :) I backed Lahayeb last night at 5/2 so I take some comfort in that pick since a few others are on. DC- do you think your nap will be ok over the shorter distance? If so I’m on. Remember guys the more harmonious we are the more winners that we will find.

    2.00 Ayr – Oscar Rock 11/4

    4.25 Ayr – Rascal 9/2

    1.45 New – Romsdal 7/4

    Don’t normally bet flat at this point in season but Romsdal looks strong to me.

  15. Luke A 3 years ago

    Absolutely loving the fact DC and John have both gone for Lahayeb. I was awake for ages in night so went through the days racing. I shortlisted 9 horses, and of the 9, layaheb was only one I knew would definitely make the cut. Meshardal is also one of the 9. Will now try Whittle it down to 4

    Very unlucky Johnb sir…Backed Rascal the last Tim on a Yankee an it was only winner from 4! :P lol

  100. Alanm 3 years ago

    I’m surprised San Quentin is 7/1 (Skybet) to win the 8.40 Wolverhampton because he should run a big race and the clues are obvious.
    Oisin Murphy is making the journey up from Newbury for just one ride this evening. Why would he bother for just a run of the mill 0-60 handicap?
    San Quentin returned to form at Kempton a couple of starts back. He came out best on sectionals by 3l despite finishing fourth.
    He made a big effort 3f out as he tried to quicken off a steady pace. Unfortunately he started too far back and the leaders had enough in reserve.
    He finished second in Jersey 12 days ago and although the form doesn’t amount to much, it shows his well-being. Snap up the 7/1 because I can envisage a gamble on the horse.
    Best Odds Guaranteed – Skybet
    Back San Quentin with Skybet as they are best price and offer Best Odds Guaranteed. If the starting price (SP) is bigger than the current price, you get paid at the bigger SP.


  101. Alanm 3 years ago

    Nice one Recoba well done.

  102. Theunwiseguy 3 years ago

    John B
    Sovereign Debt running tomorrow at the Curragh. How do you rate his chances?
    He’s drawn widest of all and in my opinion is better over 8f but feel he has every chance especially with a decent jockey in Joe Fanning on board.

  103. dougiec 3 years ago

    recoba,send me the change,Skeltons win rate best around at present,me I would have taken the £48 and stuck half of it on Rock The Kasbah,so glad I was late
    Best to you

  132. Duncan Poundcake 3 years ago

    DC I thought Due Diligence is not without a chance as well ,don’t see much over here to get excited about though GL.

  133. double carpet 3 years ago

    Yeah duncan i think he will take a lot of beating but soverign debt has a fitness advantage but still think due diligence should beat him

  134. Smackeroonies 3 years ago

    Tiede peake in the 8.40 5/1, Jason weaver likes it, just done it ew bet to nothing if you ask me.

  135. Kev 3 years ago

    What a great day at Ayr with the weather: highlight was chatting with the owners family of lie forrit. What a great family. All they wanted was the horse over safely which is so nice to see

  136. Smackeroonies 3 years ago

    Teidi peak jockey needs shot!,

  137. Duncan Poundcake 3 years ago

  146. double carpet 3 years ago

    Tell me about it rookie didnt see that one coming

  147. Rookie 3 years ago

    Think il chance stacks only runner of the day in that race dc and back sugar mill feom smullen/weld instead.

  148. Rookie 3 years ago

    Sugar mill 6/1
    Waltzing matilda 16/1

  149. double carpet 3 years ago

    I wouldnt back waltzing matilda with stolen money but ill make a call in the morning and sus out its chances.
    Eskidhaar ran well today dont think they considered the winner as a threat but still happy i took the 25s now for the guineas
