JOHNB made a great start to February on Monday with a 7pt profit.
The joint nap and NB was a non-runner so 2pts were on 7-2 shot Perfect Alchemy and it did the job. There's another double-stake tip advised for Tuesday and our man says: “Poor racing Tuesday which is why these two are short.”
Johnb's Tuesday Tips
Don’t Call Me 1-1 NAP/NB skybet (double stake)
Edgar & Don’t Call Me 6-1 skybet
Don’t Call Me (NAP/NB double stake)
Johnb says: “Apologies for this one at even money but it looks strong in a class 6 claiming stakes on Tuesday. He has been beaten twice recently by a head in class 5 claiming races where the trainer gets to decide what weight the horse has, not the handicapper. This is why on Tuesday Don’t Call Me is so far in at the weights with the second favourite it’s embarrassing, Don’t Call Me is 14lb well in with Patriotic “a horse I have tipped a couple of times”.
He is even 6lb well in with Eutropius “also a horse I have tipped before” while the other two runners are just out their depth.
Don’t Call Me has been running against far better horses than these and only in his last race a class 2 he was fourth beat two lengths by Mutasayyid, some of the other horses in that race were the likes of Melvin The Grate, Fort Bastion & Gabrials Kaka.
Last year he was beaten just over one & a half lengths by Tryster “sure we all remember that horse”.
He has run 59 times and only raced at Southwell once and that was on his debut in 2010 and he absolutely loved the surface.
Dandy Nicholls loves finding these types of races for his horses and it’s only three years since this horse was running in two group two’s in Meydan
This race on Tuesday is the lowest class of race he has been in.”
