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
Yanmare 5-1 NAP/NB (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

- 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.”
