IT was a tough day on the football and it wasn't easy for Johnb in the racing as his two tips lost.

And that's right he put up two tips – the others he posted were not as he stressed tips just suggestions for anyone looking at that meeting.

Johnb's Sunday tips

Pontefract 2.45
ALEX VINO 6-4 NAP Coral, Skybet

AIR SQUADRON 11-8 NB Coral, Paddy Power, BetVictor

Good luck everyone.

    John do you have any thoughts on the Arlington Million race?

    I fancy Real Solution or Smoking Sun to win seeing as from what I can read that the ground is no better than good and it could rain.

  2. WN 4 years ago

    11.36pm Cooldude.

  3. cooldude 4 years ago

    WN, Ryan Moore riding very well

  4. cooldude 4 years ago

    John b, did you see the ride Joseph O Brien gave Magician in the Arlington Million? My god, he rode a nightmare race attacking the front runner far too soon, on ground softer then usual. He then resorts to the whip before his horse has time two change legs. Shocker and the best jockey won.

  5. johnb 4 years ago

    Sorry wasnt on here yesturday & didnt research the Million
    Not seen it yet but i will watch it
    Magician doest seem to be the horse he was & from what i have heard the ground was perfect for him

  6. chancer 4 years ago

  15. Skippy 4 years ago

    Boz sum good tipsters on the footy thread I tend to stick to raal and Greg and I like to look out for the chief but there is a lot if guys doing well at the moment

  16. Skippy 4 years ago

    I’m on hearts as is most of the football thread, Raal has been very confident with this one all week so that is good enuf for me,

  17. PeteT 4 years ago

    Hakan – If you dont like the tips you dont have to back them.

    …but don’t make digs at Johnb (or any of the other contributors here). They’re just giving their opinion and dont deserve snipped comments.

  18. barry67 4 years ago

    Hakan johnb may be going thru a dry spell but he puts great tips up on here up to you wether u follow or not. Personally i have stayed off johnbs tips but i have put £15 on his double today as i feel confident

  24. cooldude 4 years ago

    John b, the improvement in form shown by Hardest core to win the Arlington Million is unbelievable. Before this the horse won a race at Delaware park worth 50k, hence the horse was rank outsider to win.
    The one thing I will say is Hardest Spun looks and runs the spit of his sire Hard Spun.

    Hard Spun was just born in the wrong year or maybe not. Incredible horse who never packed it in against against 2 other great 3 year olds.
    I think that qualifies him just a hair below Curlin and Street Sense. Also reminds me of the Alysheba, Bet Twice and Lost code era, 3 great horses slugging it out.

  25. ticketyboo 4 years ago

    Good afternoon racing fans don’t know what kind of day the tips were yesterday I hope if you had a loss it was a small stake one.

    3:45 Pontefract “VALONIA” 9/2 bet365

    Last run was in mid division stalking leaders until 3 furlongs out challenged leader final furlong was swamped by following horses finished 4th beaten 1 length.

    4:35 Southwell “MY BETTY” 1/1 bet365

    Don’t select odds on so this is right on the borderline.
    Last run was in the lead till running clear over 3 furlongs out won easily over 2ml4flg ridden by AP. This race over 2ml course.

  26. double carpet 4 years ago

    Good start to the day Nap wins easy

  27. big shifty 4 years ago

    • Author
      Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      big shifty, sneaky digs are uncalled for and I hate to see comments like that. We know Johnb’s on a bad run but it’s not for lack of trying or expertise. It happens with horses – just looking at the Racing Post naps table and there’s an expert who has 22 losers in a row. That’s life.

  28. BigTone 4 years ago

    Johnb nap drifting like a barge lets hope this is not a bad Sign

    • Author
      Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      Bertie, you should always worry when you see a drift.

      • raaljaca 4 years ago

        Anybody jumping on early odds the night before really needs to look at these drifts and realise a lot of the time there is no advantage in snapping up early prices.

  37. raaljaca 4 years ago

    Maverick, bottom line is his tips are put up the night before racing. There is so much that can happen between then and the ‘off’ that you should really be looking at. Mr F pointed it out about newspaper tipsters as the vast majority basically do not have a clue and go by past form etc before any indication of the strength of support reflected in the odds. Best tipsters? Guys like Dougie, Tickety, boz etc who tip closer to the off and see what is really happening. I win money from backing horses as I am fortunate to know guys who are genuinely privilege to decent info or are professional gamblers.

  38. barry67 4 years ago

    Good shout @double carpet took a single and included it in a double with boz nap king boru

  39. alec 4 years ago

    Get on this horse go large it will win take my word.

    • raaljaca 4 years ago

      Daft statement to make ben, stick to tipping a horse like the guys do without bigging it up mate.

  57. raaljaca 4 years ago

    Does Smullen ever lose?

  58. double carpet 4 years ago

    Excellent tipping dougie

    • raaljaca 4 years ago

      Dougie, I tip my hat to you mate, absolute quality.

  59. ben 4 years ago

    NAP 2nd NB 2nd gutted what a shit day.

    Raal its my tips I’m aloud to write what I want. I don’t persue or make anyone back them. The reason I said go large and it will win was because one of my contacts said to me back it and his strike rate is pretty good matey so I take his word and try to make people money by informing them on the tip.

    You have to also consider I’ve backed 7 winners from 12 tips. That’s over a 65 percent strike rate.

    • raaljaca 4 years ago

      Agreed ben, write what you like mate but you will look a touch daft guaranteeing a horse to win that loses.

    • Author
      Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      ben, I agree with raaljaca, saying a horse will win is setting you up for a fall. 7 out of 12 is great but it’s not 12 out of 12. I said the same to Jesus yesterday and he wasn’t happy but some people will have a bet going on confidence of the tipster so I have to point this out.

  60. ben 4 years ago

    Raal I do also consider and see where your coming om. Maybe I need to rephrase how I write a tip mate

    • raaljaca 4 years ago

      7 from 12 is excellent ben and you don’t need to guarantee anything mate, just tip your horses. Just my opinion.

  63. Olz 4 years ago

    I enjoy reading the tips on this page. I’ve made some solid returns following some of them.
    However, I would be wary of following tips from somebody who thinks 7 winners from 12 tips is a strike rate over 65% though….

  64. DeAndre 4 years ago

    What a great day Raal!!! Just in from work and watched the game on TiVo….managed to avoid the score all day.

    • raaljaca 4 years ago

      DeAndre, great result but we need to start playing for 90 minutes and also improve our discipline. 2 games and 2 wins though mate is all we could have asked for.

  65. barry67 4 years ago

    Footys been good for me today though

    • Author
      Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      barry67, it’s been good for me apart from Marseille who have beaten the top treble. Single up, double that I commented about up and a chance to cover goals in Benfica game for the other treble.

      • Author
        Mr Fixit 4 years ago

        Anyone following the golf tips? Meant to say well done to Ace who has made it four tournament winners in four weeks with Marc Warren at 30-1 – and it could be five with Webb Simpson tonight.
        Made in Denmark
        Marc Warren 2.5pts ew, 30-1 Betfred WIN

  66. DougieC 4 years ago

    I hold the record I had 14 out of 14 in June pity they were all second..

      ben, calm down. His comment wasn’t offensive, it was accurate and you have now put up the correct figure.

  70. DeAndre 4 years ago

    Don’t rise to it Ben 7/12 might not be 65% but it’s still a fat wallet :-)

  71. ben 4 years ago

    DeAndre I know mate just people need to grow up and stop being pathetic with needless comments.

  72. barry67 4 years ago

    Mr.f im goni have a read through the footy page see if i can pick anything up nothing big, not for giving the bookies their cash back

  77. alec 4 years ago

    good advice radjca and mr f about people saying a horse to win is a banker ive bet on people saying that and put more money on because u think its a cert to win most of the time it gets beat its like chaseing money lost

  78. DougieC 4 years ago

    teas finished,family thrown oot,granson off with a tenner from raals 10/1 shot yesterday.Feet up and watching Dragons Den!!No excuse DeAndre Wolverhampton and Windsor for you after work!!tomorrow,hard to know what to invest in!!
