ANYONE who followed Johnb's tips on Saturday will know the score. He has a critic on a one-man mission to bring him down but that won't happen.

Johnb is like every other tipster in that he's experiencing a bad run but I'm sure he'll be back – but remember he's not a pro but just a punter like everyone else.

The whole point of the racing thread was to give punters somewhere to chat about the sport and remember there are plenty of contributors putting up winning tips and priceless info.

Johnb says: “When I first came on this site way back in December I said I had a different way to pick horses. Most of them are based on upcoming form and not current form. I also said picking this way would mean they could easily finish last because I take their form on trust but it does guarantee good odds like Sunday. Some people won't like it but some will and as they say you can't please everybody all the time.”

      johnb, I’m sure you know what you’re talking about but does “upcoming form” simply mean you expect the horses to improve.

  4. double carpet 4 years ago

    2 for tomorrow at the curragh not my main bets but will be backing them nonetheless

    3.30 tigrilla 4/1
    sent over by Rodger Varian and as the forecast is for rain in between the showers must have a serious chance

    4.05 Gleneagles 11/10
    if you can get 11/10 or evs then I think that’s great value as this is a serious horse

    Main bets tomorrow

  5. raaljaca 4 years ago

    John, without wishing to get into a debate the term ‘upcoming form’ is basically something that has not yet happened at the time of you making your selections. The horses are chosen on what you think will happen but that line of thought can only be arrived at by current and past form. You add that they could finish first or last but it does guarantee good odds?? I am completely baffled by your post as ‘good odds’ are completely irrelevant if a horse has as much chance of finishing last as it has first. Does that mean any horse you tipped at 5/4 etc had as much chance of finishing last as it did first? I only ask as I just think your post will baffle a lot of people.

  6. Clarky 4 years ago

    Raaljaca thanks for asking that question if I did it would not be I’ve said all along I’m not slating Johnb but his tips have left me baffled for some time,I think his post tonight explaines a lot.

    • Author
      Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      Clarky, it just needs explained better. I’m interested in you saying about 20 people have complained about Johnb’s tips. That’s not bad considering the tens of thousands who read them every day.

    • raaljaca 4 years ago

      Clarky, I only asked as it completely baffled me. Upcoming form has not happened and can only be guessed at, for want of a better term, by having some current or past form to go by. As I said I don’t want a debate but the ‘guaranteed good odds’ part is one I cannot get my head round when it is arrived at by the assumption a horse could be first or last. I will leave it at that as I back my own and other trusted peoples judgement and it is paying off at present.

      • Author
        Mr Fixit 4 years ago

        raaljaca, the key thing is you look at the tips and make up your mind and that’s how everyone should play it. Johnb’s there to help not dictate.

        • raaljaca 4 years ago

          Agreed Mr F and his explanation makes it a bit clearer.

      • boz 4 years ago

        CONFUSED.COM the only form is what a horse has already achieved you can try predict what a horse may do improve etc but that is not form.

        good luck

        • raaljaca 4 years ago

          boz, bottom line is people are judged on their results.

  7. DeAndre 4 years ago

    I’m guessing he means they’re ‘unexposed’ MrF, of not that then I’m befuddled :-)

  8. johnb 4 years ago

    I think you should know that a horse at 5/4 has more chance of winning than coming last just like a horse at 33/1 has more chance of coming last than first & that shouldnt baffle people because the odds tell you that
    In the Naps race Horsted Keynes is 9/1 & Muteela is 9/4 which says Muteela has more chance of beating my Nap but there are circumstances in Horsted Keynes favour tomorrow or i think there are
    Muteela is 9/4 because of current form & Horsted Keynes is 9/1 because of current form
    Upcoming form as i call it is a horse reproducing its best form or improving to a higher level of form
    You even mentioned in the past about me spotting a gamble before it happens & the way i study allows me to be able to do that

  9. Ramey 4 years ago

    Johnb legend. In no way would i have a dig. I think maybe you could join in the banter abit more. Its not ur fault but i think people are putting u on a pedestal as john almighty whereas being john the lad would be much more helpful. Just a thought but everyones in the same boat and its asif punters expect your tips to be more informative than raal tickety boz etc. When we all know anything can happen in racing. Fairplay you can put up more educated tips than most but at end of day its abit alienating when u go missing whilst on a bad run etc

  10. Duncan Poundcake 4 years ago

    Anyone who pays any attention to my inane ramblings may have noticed my favourite horse was in action today
    1st 4 Sleep In First (FR) 8/1
    2nd 2 Amilliontimes (IRE) 12/1
    3rd 1 Weybridge Light 8/1

    Winning Trainer J Ewart
    Winning Jockey D Irving
    i am sorry i did not point this out but he has never won over hurdles before,I had a small token wager out of (usually) misplaced loyalty.SORRY ALL.

  11. Kendog 4 years ago

    No one was complaining about JB’s tips for a a good few months when their pockets were being lined. So you cant expect the man to change his strategy when things aren’t goin to plan! It would seem Johns been doing this for a while and is hardly trying to loose people money!
    Its been said a million times but its true, if you don’t like them don’t back them!
    There is plenty of top guys to follow if you don’t
    … My problem is picking what to back with so many regulars landing great wins daily:)

  12. GAZ B 4 years ago

    I agree with RAAL but at the same time
    You shouldn’t feel like you should justify your picks, your on a terrible run to be fair , I’ve been following when you hit a good patch too. But you have been selected specifically on a tip site and so results should maybe be a bit better, here’s to improved resukts and let’s hope the rest on the site carry on

  13. Centrecircle 4 years ago

    Johnb-sometimes,when picking a horse you can “study” too much,when its best to go on your instincts or gut gut feeling…this is not ctitisism as tipping is a difficult job-keep your head up lad

  14. Duncan Poundcake 4 years ago

    If anyone was making a profit without John’s tips why did you change ?
    If you weren’t then you are no worse off .There are plenty of tipsters out there all claiming they will make you a fortune.Feel free to try them .

  15. johnb 4 years ago

    To just back on current form can be dangerous because a horse can only be raised so much weight & so much in class till its on a mark that will find the horse out
    Horsted Keynes is a top class handicapper & tomorrow is a group3 race but a good handicapper can win group races because a group 3 isnt a big jump in class
    Horsted Keynes has the past form that can be reproduced but is also a lightly raced horse that still has the scope for improvement hence my phrase upcoming form

    Also said in the past that the headgear doesnt work for all horses but if the hood is going to work for a horse it will always be first time on
    Horsted Keynes looks to have the right attitude for
    hood to work & just looking at horses & the way they act will tell you alot more about a horse

  16. johnb 4 years ago

    Also i would love to be on here all the time but if i am on here then i am not studying
    Also with work it limits my time on here but when i do study i am always 2 days infront

    Today i have been studying for monday & was fine tuning sundays picks

    On sunday i study for tuesday & fine tune mondays horses to get maybe 1 or 2 picks from the 8 i have just now

  17. DougieC 4 years ago

    Not getting into this debate John paid for my Christmas and holiday in February,butI just do not understand the way you have been picking your races recently.A five runner class 5 hurdle race when there was 40 other races that day.last week.I try to look for value too.All I can see eg your NB dropping in class as is Flow,Outback traveller beat Ticking Katie who was placed the other day at York and has Champion Jockey up.What am I missing

  18. johnb 4 years ago

    DougieC it goes back to what Mezzotint has done in the past & is a horse that looks like back in form & i think Mezzotint should have won that class 2 last time out & the jockey never got the horse into top gear through being unlucky in running
    It was a bit like todays Nap when the jockey makes up his mind to go for a gap & just went a fraction too early & lost a little momentum which did cost it the race today being beat a nose
    Back to tomorrows Nb though as i said should have won last time in my mind & distance & going are perfect tomorrow
    The last two times Mezzotint has run in a class 3 over 7f this horse has won & those wins came off marks of 91 & 87
    Mezzotint now on 85 in class 3 again for a horse that i think proved last time can win in a better grade than this
    Other horses do have chances but i really like my Nb

  19. DougieC 4 years ago

    That’s fair enough John just watched its last race. Went for a gap that wasn’t there as far as Im concerned.Well handicapped but last win too far back for me.I still hold the record though for 14 seconds in a row Thanks and GL

  20. Abbas 4 years ago

    I think we just all gotta be grateful that we have so many good tips and comments from every1,
    I gotta admit I do miss the old days where people got mentioned on the write ups the next day for there good tips and success, thought that gave people more confidents and more focus,

    I hope every1 is well.

  23. Bill 4 years ago

    John B
    As I have stated before I do not know much about racing but learning every week. Irrespective of the sport, form is temporary and class is permanent. Judging the up, and down form, is the key. Keep believing in what you are doing.

    Like the fact this horse has the claimer in board who has won on it before. Been runing well in good races lately and the horse it was second to in the last 7f C5, aqua Arden’s, just won again on Friday so in my eyes it helps the form.

    Am no gary owen n wud never critise anyone for posting they’re tips i wud say most horse races at the bread n butter meetings r not truly run races cos imo somebody has info bout certain horses laid out to win that’s how the small trainers get by for the year so sometimes it’s better who u know than wot u know let’s ktf n stick it up the booky they r the real enemy

  38. Rookie 4 years ago

    I must be slowly learning from the greats as i already had earmarked steeler and darnathean. Which have been put up by dougie,DC and boz.
    I also like whers tiger in the last at beverley and took 5/2 last night.
    Ive also chanced lunarian in 16.35 at beverley at 6/1.

  40. double carpet 4 years ago

    Ok here’s 3 for today that take my fancy

    Goodwood 2.30 classic mission 5/1

    Poor race but selection drops into seller company for the first time oisin Murphy doing the steering at that price can be done ew but I’m going for a win

    Yarmouth 4.25 sakash 7/2 nb

    Has won over c&d around this time last year

    Beverley 5.05 maybeme 11/2 ew

    Multiple c&d winner claimed taking 7lbs off today must give him a chance

    Best of luck to all today

  41. Duncan Poundcake 4 years ago

    Some days you have to hold your hands up and say …I don’t have a clue. The only one I like is Double Carpets ,Maybeme 5.05 Bev GL to all.

  42. kenneth 4 years ago

    have to go against johnb in the 4.15 at goodwood. MUTEELA ran a great race over c/d last time to finish second and can step up a place today and win.

  43. ticketyboo 4 years ago

    Good morning racing fans 1 winner yesterday to add to the others who had winners.Sorry no reviews today.

    2:10 Yarmouth “RUSSIAN HEROINE” 11/4 bet365

    3:25 Beverley “EMEF DIAMOND 5/1 bet365

    The above are my 2 selections but a horse I have bet on is in the 2:55 Curragh “PARISH HALL” 11/4 from 5/1 bet365 I think he will give a good account of himself and a lot will depend on the conditions.

  44. gus 4 years ago

    5.40 Curragh

    Sindarban 11/2

    a bit keen last run but looked all over winner with furlong to go so drop back in trip sure to suit.

  45. Rookie 4 years ago

    Im tempted to have small stakes on smullen in the first at curragh at 12/1. Iv missed way too many of his bigger odds winners just lately. Lol

  46. Scuzzle 4 years ago

    3.05 Goodwood – The Corsican 7/1 Handicap debut from a horse that’s run just the three times, form reads 3,1,5 with the first being in a handicap maiden and the 5th in a group 3 but were all over 1m 4 furlongs and drops back to 1m 1f today. This horse is bred to be smart so could still be anything so 7/1 is a decent price.

    I also like JohnB’s Mezzotint so this will be my double for today.

  47. double carpet 4 years ago

    Beverley 4.35 lady mai 8/1

    Just received word for this horse from my source and as usual just passing it on

    Backed ur nap yesterday johnb
    Very unlucky not to collect it was a good tip .by you
    Some of the horses you have gone for lately have run terribly
    You are capable of a 40% strike rate when on form
    I think when the allweather gets into full swing you should concentrate on it
    Then the winners will flow again

  57. johnb 4 years ago

    Boz all horses improve & different trainers improve horses at different rates & horses through breeding differences improve at different rates
    I always say form never lies long term but neither does the breeding of horses long term
    From just watching a horse race first time out in the flesh i can tell with most what ground they want, roughly what distance they want & even the best jockey for that horse
    Not all the time but i will get a lot right
    I never use a newspaper & dont think i have bought one for 5 years now

    i give up john you just stated you dont buy a paper for 5 years so are you saying you have remembered 5 years of form in your head i study racing post every day

    i have never heard anything so pathetic i have followed horses for 30 years but i need papers study form i cant remember 10000 horse form u claim u can

    future form no such thing form is what a horse has done not what your guessing at

    i have never hear such rubbish

    • raaljaca 4 years ago

      boz, time we left johnb’s systems etc to himself. No point in being critical as you will end up banned and we need tipsters like yourself on here.

    • cooldude 4 years ago

      Boz, that a poor comment and you should know the consequences of negativity towards John b on the site. John b has his own ways like using available sites online but quite frankly its none of our business.
      Boz I never thought you would take cheap shots at John but Im disappointed

    • James C 4 years ago

      boz, give johnb a break. Seriously, you’re not suggesting you have to buy a newspaper to get racing form? The internet provides much more detailed racing form and analysis than could possibly be available in any newspaper!

      • raaljaca 4 years ago

        Can’t swat wasps with the internet though when you are studying form :)

        • cooldude 4 years ago

          Raal, this may be a factor also as people’s rage tends to build every time they miss or dont hit hard enough. Perhaps a can of fly spray may suffice???

          • raaljaca 4 years ago

    Boz just because I dont tip winners everyday it does not give you the right to bad mouth me. Ive already tipped a couple of winners, but seriously you need to cool off.

  101. raaljaca 4 years ago

    Right everybody take a deep breath, that’s it lads, inhale, hold it……………………………. and out. Thats better. Now we all have our own opinions but as I have learnt this is not the time or place to air negativity. We win together and we lose together. Boz you are to good a tipster to lose from this site mate. We started this with swany, Papa Smurf, DeAndre and a good few more and saw it grow massively. It has, unfortunatley, gone backwards in many ways but is still very very decent for certain people posting excellent tips. I know Papa Smurf and Tickety get a lot of pleasure from being able to air their opinions when at times there health makes it difficult to get out and about. These guys are valued and know there stuff so lets keep it positive and strong. Irrespective of what name is on the headers it is everybodies thread so keep posting guys. Love and Peace.

      Raal, this is not the first time there has been controversy with Boz. Either way Boz after john b, probably has the best points record on his tips and he would no doubt be a bad loss to the sight.
      I have fought with many people on this site and Boz will NOT be one of them.

      • boz 4 years ago

        cooldude fought your a creeping coward you do nothing but agree and crawl

        • cooldude 4 years ago

          Boz, I agree we all started life by creeping and crawling as babies. Im just happy that we haven’t fallen out so lets continue to concentrate and bash the bookies!!

      • raaljaca 4 years ago

        We will just leave it be dudes. We know who is decent tipster wise and we do not want to lose any of these good ones.

    Woah now you guys need to relax up in here! Where’s the love, harmony and peace? To be fair Boz my friend I contribute VERY little to the site but it doesn’t mean I don’t gain from the tips, that’s the purpose of you all giving your tips right? For people to gain :)

  103. honda 4 years ago

    To gain TOGETHER, as ONE :)

  104. raaljaca 4 years ago

    time for this again i think,
    IF you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;
    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
    Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
    If you can dream – and not make dreams your master;
    If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim;
    If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same;
    If you can make one heap of all your winnings
    And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
    And lose, and start again at your beginnings
    And never breathe a word about your loss;

    • raaljaca 4 years ago

    Whoosh! Its all kicked off in here!
    I must say Cooldude Im impressed with your new more relaxed persona, the old Dudes would have cracked up by now!
    Boz your a great asset to the site, maybe your overreacting about the whole newspaper thing? Some people just prefer to do it online!

    • cooldude 4 years ago

      Kendog, much appreciated. I was bad mouthed by Boz today forcing Mr f to delete his comments. Kendog everyone has a right to comment on the site so long as its appropriate.

    • boz 4 years ago

      kendog tell me whats hes done exceppt creep to mr f and johnb

      • cooldude 4 years ago

        Boz, like I said earlier share the love and together we can concentrate and bash the bookies!!!

  111. boz 4 years ago

    mr f no disrespect we all have different opinions but no need for a complete crawling scared coward calling me

  112. double carpet 4 years ago

    as one of the newer members of this site I’d just like to say I have full respect for everyone who posts their tips up here win or lose
    I really enjoy reading it and am hooked
    would hate it if that didn’t continue to be the case

    • boz 4 years ago

      i put up tips every day 0ver 600 points up u do nothing
      but agree with john b or mr fixit and im the creep

      ok i want some honest response to this pathetic coward from the regilars or im off

      i have never heard such pathetic sad crawling from this sad coward be honest guys

      • cooldude 4 years ago

        Boz. Its called wind up. really, you need to stop taking my comments to heart. Again lets focus our energy into beating the bookies.

  113. Hamish75 4 years ago

    Mibbee a missed something everybody has differing opinions n i for one hav total respect for boz n johnb does a lot of work for the life of me a canny work oot wot cooldude has got to do wi boz,s opinion is cooldude the site policeman av seen him havin a go at other people wen its nowt ti do wi him a think mrf n the moderator r capable of runnin the site without anybody,s help the last thing we need is for boz ti get abuse so my respect goes ti boz n cooldude shud mind yer own business this is just my opinion ktf

    • cooldude 4 years ago

      Hamish agreed. This racing thread would be nothing without myself John b Raal and Boz. But to say Im the site policeman would be an understatement, as Id rather be refereed to as Site Sheriff :)

    • boz 4 years ago

      Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      boz, to be honest I’m fed up with some of the stuff on the racing thread. Your comment stayed up as it wasn’t offensive and to be fair you made a point and Johnb can answer it easily enough. You don’t need to buy papers because they’re all online anyway. I’m not in the habit of banning people anyway – fewer than 20 people are currently banned.

  117. Andy G 4 years ago

    Boz, a lot of people follow you m8 so don’t leave, You and a few others make this thread. I’m not going to comment about dudes, his name really sums the guy up. As you say boz, happy days! And more winners please

    • cooldude 4 years ago

      Andy g, thats your opinion but I never pass comment on people’s names hers so maybe you should do the same.

  118. double carpet 4 years ago

    I have to defend boz
    for the limited time I’ve been on here I don’t think he’s missed a day apart from when he’s been on his hols and has given many many winners

    • cooldude 4 years ago

      Ive already said in the past this is John b’s thread but to shout him down like Boz did today is not on.

  119. Rookie 4 years ago

    So Genius boy is back in a handicap tomorrow…can currently get 7/1.

  120. Rookie 4 years ago

    Boz i see maoi chinn tire is back out again tomorrow-a bookie basher in itself that was introduced by your good self. Looks a tougher race though? What are your thoughts?

  121. DeAndre 4 years ago

    Whys Boz leaving exactly? I might be an idiot but I’m not drunk…Boz has been excellent since I’ve returned ( he must’ve joined during my absence) and I would think losing him would be a huge step backward on this thread. People need to realise this thread is about more than Johnb, yes he’s the poster boy, but the heart and soul of this thread are the guys like Swany, Raal, PapaSmurf, Boz, Sęnor Poundcake…who post constantly and challenge each other to be better each day. Kinda forgotten why I started this rant……oh yeah, Boz don’t leave :-D that is all haha :-D

  122. daz 4 years ago

    Barca 3-0 Messi gets his 2nd.

  123. Rookie 4 years ago

    So theres a few horses for tomorrow that i can be linked to some posters on here:
    Rowlestone lass 9/2 -has seconditis like Dougie!
    Coldstonesober 4/1 – i said i wouldnt name deandre as this link
    Speed Check 9/4 – i’m sure swany posts the results/congratulations before the race has finished!
    Long Awaited 4/1 – as are Bozs tips everyday
    Haafaguinea 10/3 – the average stake of raaljaca
    Explosive lady 9/4 – clarkys comments?
    Lunar Spirit 9/4 – the only one left that i like and i want to mention tickety!

    Best accumlator odds according to an odds comparison website is 11.5k. And if u win i will only take a minor commission of 10%.

    Ps no offence intended for any of the above!!

  124. Rookie 4 years ago

    I just spent ages on that post mr moderator!

  125. DeAndre 4 years ago

    Ha, love it ;-)

  126. Hamish75 4 years ago

    Am on team boz. Cooldude ur now sayin yer at the wind up wi boz there wis no humour in ur comments y don’t ye man up apologise to boz for being obnoxious n do wot mrf sed let it go to fink boz wud leave the site cos u get involved wi issues that don’t warrant ur input. Don’t leave boz ur contribution is priceless ktf

    • cooldude 4 years ago

      Hamish, I not going to lower my colors for you. I was simply defending John b and will do it again if I have to. Can you not see the effort John has everyday studying form for tips and then to have a tirade of abuse thrown at him for not using a newspaper.
      Hamish leave me alone in peace.

  127. 1plus2 4 years ago

    This is actually getting quite depressing coming here nowadays and one of the reasons to me is there are cliques forming on here and whoever asks for support or they are off like boz has done only suggests they are here for self gratification and wanting praise for doing what they do.

    Personally boz your a top bloke that knows his stuff as well as anyone and contributes winners more than most but when i see what you have posted about wanting responses or your off just smacks off me me me.

    Anyone who comes on here comes here for the good of everyone or so it should be no need to be throwing comments about how pathetic people are in relation to what they tip on here or how they go about tipping horses.

    As i say boz yer a top bloke but don’t fall into the category of thinking you are more important than anyone else on here because that just makes you look bad m8 but you are right about cooldude complete waste of time and he just wants to stir the excrement :-)

    Also boz when there is any praise getting banded about it’s nearly always the same people who are giving it to the same group of posters like 5 or 6 of the same people which looks a clique is forming or so it looks to me m8.

    Poor Shaun got a touch of this in the footy threads by having a go at the same peeps mostly getting any praise when it’s dished out.

    We have a saying up here “We are all jock tamsons bairns” roughly translated we are all the same and should be treated the same.

    On a more personal note i once gave out a 9/1,two 9/2 winners and a couple of 7/2 and 11/8’s plus a few place bets in the space of 10 days or so and not 1 person even gave it a mention.

    In fact i think someone said something about picking the same horse as templegate or summin but apart from that no mention of the tips i had put up for the horses, but i don’t do it to get mega praise or recognition because i ain’t good enough to even attempt to have any ego about picking tips.

    So boz just put it down to a bad hair day m8 ( we all have em) and just keep doing what you do best and that’s giving out winners regularly and forget the roasters like that ridiculously named cooldude ;-)

  128. shaky 4 years ago

    I’m sure there are many different strategys involved in making horse betting profitable long term, considering that there are so many variables to consider; past form, current form, jockey, trainer, the ground, the track, breeding etc.

    Given this, I’m baffled that some people seem to think that they got enough information to write off johnb’s entire horse selecting technique from the couple of non-descript paragraphs he wrote earlier.

  129. Hamish75 4 years ago

    Cooldude ur missing the point johnb does not need u to defend him mrf johnb himself n the moderator do a fine job mrf quoted that the comment boz made wis not abusive then in pops u to cause trouble so do us aw a favour n gies peace yer nipping ma napper so nite nite hope ti hear fi u ramora boz ktf

    • raaljaca 4 years ago

      Love hamishs last line;

      yer nipping ma napper so nite nite hope ti hear fi u ramora boz ktf

      best line I have ever read on here. Hamish you have that magical way with words mate ;)

  130. Kyleh 4 years ago

    This service is free. I would understand if we all payed for the tips but we don’t. I feel sorry for mrfixit and johnb as all they do is put time and effort in. We are all grown men so let’s stop acting like kids and complaining every day. No one forces you to put the bets on and it’s mrfixits site so he can do whatever he wants.

    • cooldude 4 years ago

      Kyleh, Im not sure what you’ve been reading but you’ve got this all wrong. The issue here has nothing to do with winning or losing bets. Please make an effort to read the comments properly before you throw more fuel onto the fire.

    • Author
      Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      Kyleh, as has been said that wasn’t the issue.

  131. DougieC 4 years ago

    Boz sit back mate It is easy.There are enough on this thread who know your worth.I said it last night,that Johnb paid for my Xmas and holiday Nov Dec.How you can seriously study 3 days ahead with the amount of declarations is one point,I do not know Jbs work commitments which he has now mentioned allow this.To be honest he has me baffled.One 8/11 winner and a non runner at a major meeting speaks for itself. 1plus2 I mentioned a well done on one of your winners and if you remember you asked for thoughts on a race and jumped off a 25/1 winner. We all do it,make an arse of ourselves,but this thread the chat part used to be bags of fun,lets get back to where we were!!

    • 1plus2 4 years ago

      Yep Dougie you are spot on about making an erse of ourselves every now and again and i do remember the 25/1 shot (still kicking myself about that) and i am sure you mentioned the fact some of my picks templegate had them as well (not sure if you meant i was putting his tips up as my own).

      But no disrespect to you or anyone else but when i see the kudos given to people on here by yourself and others who i respect it is mostly the same circle of people that get the most kudos or the most lets say recognition, and it’s by the same i shall call the inner circle.

      That is by no way a dig or such but it certainly looks like to me that a certain chosen few on here seem to just keep the majority of praise/recognition mostly to that inner circle so to speak.

      I am no literary genius and that maybe could be worded better but i know what i am meaning if no one else does :-)

      PS i know people will have there fav posters on here and that may include what i call the inner circle so that might explain why it looks like only the few getting the serious kudos/recognition by certain posters but i just hope that it is not getting to anyone’s head that they are in some way superior to anyone else or they reckon they are worth any more than the rest of the sites viewers.

      But sometimes the comments don’t look very good in that regard but as you say Dougie we all make a fool of ourselves every now and again.

  132. cobramint 4 years ago

    I’ll be honest. I’ve just come back from a 14k two week holiday in the Turks and Caicos islands. Paid for with a £500 starting stake on Johnb’s tips in Jan. Total cost was just over 14k so johnb owes me nothing. In fact I still owe him. Months like that don’t happen very ofter and John has had a bad few months. I for one plus many others keep the faith. I only do £50 doubles or trebles depending on the number of John selection’s. As johnb says if you back level stakes I’m sure you’d be up. Me I just love a £50 treble. Remember only bet what you can afford to lose… everyone :-)
