JOHNB landed a superb 10-1 winner nap on Wednesday and has a strong pick for Thursday. It's his joint nap and NB and he's been waiting more than a year for this horse to come back to Southwell.
He reckons the odds will get a lot shorter because he was expecting it to be 5-2 or 3-1 favourite.
On Sunday he was extrenely confident about Mezmaar and having tipped it at 10-1 it came home at 8s.

EXTREME SUPREME (NAP/NB)
Five furlongs at Southwell with 10 runners you ideally want to be drawn in stalls 3 to 5 as this brings you right up the middle of the track, one place you don’t want to be drawn is high as that’s right on the stand side rail,
Extreme Supreme ran at Wolverhampton a couple of weeks ago which looked a warm-up for Thursday, he reared coming out the stalls and the jockey never really got serious on the horse, He comes to Southwell on Thursday and watching this horse run here, he loves the surface, his action is good and he will run all the way to the line.
He has raced here three times, winning twice and second on the other.
He won a class 6 here at the end of 2014 on a mark of 65 and was running away at the finish, the second place he had was in a class 4 January 2015 on a mark of 71 and was beaten one & a half lengths. On Thursday he is in a class 6 from a mark of 63.
He hasn’t troubled the judge since but is back on his favoured surface and it would be a major shock to me if he can’t win this race from a low handicap mark.
