IT was another interesting day on the racing thread and well done to everyone who posted winners.
For the second day running Johnb's advice rather than tips paid off and plenty were on Outlander at a big price after he highlighted it.
Our man is 50.4pts up for December and hoping to add to that tally on Thursday.
Fern Owl 4-1 NAP
Affair 12-1 NB
Makes his debut on fibresand but watching his races I feel he will be suited to the surface. Hughie Morrison has an all-time 24% of winners here, 91 from 382 runners but between winners and placed horses his record is over 50% strike rate. In the last 12 months it’s 1 win and 2 placed from 4 runners.
Another horse making his fibresand debut but like Fern Owl he is trained by Hughie Morrison and is pretty shrewd on the horses he takes there. The jockey is yet to have a winner but looks half decent from what I have seen.

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.”
