IT'S been a memorable December for Johnb and he's 50.4pts up heading into the final day of the year.

His last tip of 2016 is a double stake and here's to a happy new year to everyone on the racing thread.

Johnb's Saturday Tip

Newbury 1:15
Yanmare 5-1 NAP/NB william hill (double stake)

Won for us last time and still improving, distance and ground will be fine. 5/1 looks a tad on the generous side and he is clearly the one to beat.
On a mark of 104 Yanmare is still well ahead of the handicapper, he does need to run a bit more fluently but that will come in time and any sort of improvement from his last run would be good enough to win this and there is stills plenty of improvement to come from Yanmare

Antepost Tips

  • 1000 Guineas 2017 – PROMISE TO BE TRUE 20-1 Betfred (now 25-1)
  • 2000 Guineas 2017 – CHURCHILL 20-1 bet365 (now 6-4)
  • 2017 Derby – CHURCHILL 33-1 Racebets (now 7-1)
  • 2000 Guineas 2017 – BLUE POINT 14-1 racebets (now 33-1)

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.”

    Lac Fontana 3:00 Newbury remember winning my first big prize at 11/1 in 2014 put a lump on and booom addicted will put money on won’t win but I owe it! Any thought on the 3 at Newbury ewthief I would like to know your thoughts lots of high prices there tomorrow for good horses royal guardsman 33/1 willow saviour 33/1 probably go 40/1 I know the fav looks good

  7. andyeff 2 years ago

    John B, just wondered your thoughts on your naps vs Colin’s sister, based on the fact Sam TD is riding the other horse? Many thanks

    • Johnb 2 years ago

      I don’t know if he got the choice or if they were allocated their rides but if Sam got the choice I think he picked wrong, Colin’s Sister isn’t without hope but Yanmare has to be the one for me,
      Horatio Hornblower 16/1 and Blameitonmyroots 7/1 would be the main dangers I think and probably in that order

      • skinnybear 2 years ago

        John, How confident are u ? lost a good wedge today on your nap as you sounded so confident.
        Scale: 1 not so confident- 5 being home and hosed. Thanks in advance.

        • Johnb 2 years ago

          I am always confident so it will never be a 1
          There are always dangers but I am extra confident, horses are not machines though and if sticking to level stakes which I advise then nobody will go wrong,
          I have never liked lumping on as it’s so easy to go wrong

          • skinnybear 2 years ago

            Cheers for the reply. I like your Confidence John. I never comply to level stakes, If i feel the horse is going to win, i up my stakes, Mid week punting race by race then yea, Level stakes wont see you broke. I follow you again tomorrow, You made me a packet on your trip to dundalk so Thanks.
            I’ll have an Increased play… If I may I’ll give you one for tomorrow Elegant Escape in the 150 Newbury, I reckon this should have a great chance. Happy New Year John. Good Luck tomorrow.

    Evening all,

    After sitting out today’s racing I’ve looked out 4 small stake selections to round off the month.

    1.50 Newbury – Missire Des Obeaux 7/2

    At the prices this evening Missire Des Obaeux looks the value punt in the Challow tomorrow. He showed he was well ahead of his handicap mark on seasonal debut at Bangor before seeing off Ballyandy and Cultivator in a decent Sandown Grade 2, where he stayed on strongly up the Sandown hill – I expect he will be closer to the pace today. While there are a number of very promising horses in the field there could be bags more to come from Missire Des Obeaux and at around 7/2 he rates as good value in my book.

    2.05 Lingfield – Third Time Lucky 7/1 EW

    I tipped up this horse 2 starts back on his all-weather debut at Lingfield when he ran a respectable race finishing 5th, while things didn’t fall right for him that day I made a note to follow him. Yet, I passed him over last time at Wolverhampton as he rated a terrible value from a poor draw – he was forced to make the pace (unlike him) and came 9th. On the back of that his mark has dropped to 99 – based on his Cambridgeshire win in 2015, his decent 4th this year in the same race and his other decent runs this year he looks sure to go well from this lowly mark. 7/1 looks fair and I think he could make it “third time lucky” on the all weather tomorrow! (I will be playing each way at that price)

    2.25 Newbury – Romain De Senam 7/2

    Again at the prices I am happy to take a chance with Romain De Senam tomorrow. He was a very useful hurdler and his second in the Fred Winter rates as some of the best form on offer. On chasing debut last time at Plumpton he put up a decent showing against the highly talented Top Notch jumping well and with that run under his belt I think he can put up a much improved effort tomorrow. 7/2 looks very fair. In what looks a trappy event he looks the value.

    3.00 Newbury – Kings Bandit 9/2 EW

    Kings Bandit went into my tracker a few seasons back when he was trained by Oliver Sherwood, after he racked up a useful 3 timer (recording some decent speed figures). He had a short season last year after suffering a setback and has subsequently been moved across the Irish Sea to the fantastic Gordon Elliott. The work seems to have resulted in a return to form, on debut he ran a really good race finishing a close (under 2 length) 5th at Cork before falling 3 out when looking sure to go close at Navan last time. A mark of 137 looks well within his reach and at the prices tomorrow an each way play on Kings Bandit must have a good chance of a return.

    I will take this chance to say, I hope everyone has a very enjoyable and safe New Years celebration!

    Many thanks and GL to all

    morning everyone saturdays are obviously the easiest day of the week for us who like a bet on the horses so feeling extra confident today. one tip ive been given is HANDSOME SAM 2.10 warwick. its only 7-2 to win but i wouldnt post one at short odds if i wasnt confident.

    one football tip also ipswich to beat bristol city by exactly 1 goal. bristol city have lost 6 of their last 7 by exactly 1 goal. can see this being 1-0 or 2-1. price should be around 11-4

    have a great new year everyone and stay safe lots of love rafe

    Start of another new year so stats starting at zero again, I do get busy studying all the time but I will try and put up more detailed stats this year and hopefully kickoff 2017 with two winners

    Capeland 9/4 betfred NAP/NB bet365 (double stake)

    Won last time over hurdles and also on this day last year when he won a Listed NH Flat race at Cheltenham, ground will be fine and he looks a horse that will love the course

    Lil Rockerfeller 3/1 betfred

    Clearly the one to be on after his last couple of runs and this is his easiest assignment for a while, what I like most about him is his battling qualities, he never gives up and he should be able to finally get another win

    Double 12/1 betfred
