THE nap was Johnb's only winner on Saturday so January is now a 12.87 point loss for our man.

Johnb says: “Sunday sees the return of what is our best all-weather course Chelmsford City. Jockeys and trainers loved this course with its wide long sweeping bends and long straights and we hardly ever got any hard-luck stories.

“Situated in Essex it was well supported by trainers especially by the Newmarket ones who for the last few years have been training some of their horses on the polytrack surface there. It's great to see this course back and hopefully we can get some winners.”

    Not been a great start to the year john b but at the end of the day if everyone keeps to level stakes what you won a lot of guys at end of last year will still cover it.

    But I put tea for two with your nap and made a 60 pound profit.

    I’m confident you’ll hit a gold streak soon. And I hope everyone keeps faith with you big guy.

  2. Marc 4 years ago

    I’ve just gone a 2 Yankee on your four selections. Wish you all luck

  3. Luke A 4 years ago

    I live in Braintree, which is in fact closer the racecourse than Chelmsford. Not sure why it’s called Chelmsford city racecourse when it’s actually in Great Leighs. I was lucky enough to get an invite to the very first meeting there last time round. And also worked behind bar there the night it got called off due to severe bad weather. Can’t wait for all the meetings this year. I’ll be a regular there for sure.

  4. dougiec 4 years ago

  10. Rookie 4 years ago

    Dougie also the master of footy aswell!

  11. dougiec 4 years ago

    rookie Scottish championship but more so Div 1 BTTS as Greg has pointed out usually pretty good,all but one today.

  12. Napper valley 4 years ago

    Good day today. I decided to keep the bets off the thread due to my poor form over the end of the week. Typical. Tracey’s star and upepito did the business.

    Only one bet for tomorrow

    Fairy house: 2.30 bright new dawn.

    Dougie has already given this as a cryptic tip but I just can’t see past it. Although I am not the best a backing favs so this one will likely flop.

    On another did anyone see Douvan run today. It looked very good. I’m deciding whether to try an anti post at 5/2 fir the supreme.

    Well do e DC with WBA. Didn’t do it myself but in footy any tip at even or above is good. Nice one.

    Latest News Meeting at Ayr OFF

    Ayr has abandoned Monday’s jumps fixture after “a severe storm” caused structural damage to parts of the course.

    Up to 20mm of rainfall has been forecast on Sunday, but clerk of the course Emma Marley had been hopeful the meeting would defeat the elements.

    A 7.30am precautionary inspection on raceday morning was called earlier in the day, but the situation deteriorated markedly afterwards.

    A statement issued by Ayr officials read: “We have had a severe storm, with high winds causing structural damage to buildings on course.

    “The forecast is for winds to remain strong (50-60 mph) through today and tomorrow, thus the site has been deemed unsafe to stage a race meeting.

    “We apologise for any inconvenience caused – safety is a priority.”

    Ayr clerk of the course Emma Marley added: “Since we walked the track this morning the weather has been pretty hairy.

    “We’ve had thunder and lightning and gale force winds and, unfortunately, some roofs have blown off the stables. The ceiling is also coming down on the stands and the safety officer has deemed the site unsafe.

    “It’s a shame as the track is raceable, but the weather is not improving and we can’t secure the site in time for racing.

    “I’m glad we’ve made the call early to stop people travelling up unnecessarily.”

  49. Bill 4 years ago

    Looked out a couple more for today but will post only this one for consideration.

    Kelso 3.20 Stanley with 2 place cover at 11/5.
    Should like the conditions and change of yard

    Best of for the days guys and have a good one

  50. Luke A 4 years ago

    I have no idea how people from Harlow and Southend are deemed as locals to the racing at Chelmsford today! Having read plenty of comments on social media, betfred have really ticked off the vast majority of true locals, and already some people are stating they’ll now never visit the track. Betfred shops in Harlow and Southend were offering invites and even arranging coaches there and back today. Yet the real locals in Witham and Chelmsford didn’t get invited at all. Surely it’s best to keep those closest to the course happy, as they are most likely to be your repeat customers!?!
    anyways, for me personally, I’ll still be visiting regularly for sure.
    Good to see you posting tips again Raal. all the best!

    • Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      Duncan, sorry but they’re not the same company – McBookie are independent but use the BetVictor platform for odds as they of course don’t have the numbers to price up everything themselves.

  58. Luke A 4 years ago

    I’m not there today mate, invite only, and I live 3 miles from the course (if that) so I’m not deemed as a local. Those in Southend and Harlow (30+ miles away) appear to be seen as the locals lol. I will definitely be going to the first meeting that is open to the public, currently expected to be Feb 1st. Good luck today with anything you back

  97. paul 4 years ago

    Now to decide whether to cash out or not. Hahaha firts world problems

  98. Greg Browning 4 years ago

    Terrific stuff Johnb

    Does anyone know the rules with bet365 settlement! I was under the impression they always settle at best price? I took Zac brown at 11//4 but it won at 9/2 therefore I was expecting to paid on 9/2 but Instead it was settled at 10/3?

    • AL 4 years ago

      Same thing happened to me with coral, took 10/3 and got paid at that price despite it winning at 9/2 and them doing the BOG offer. Had £30 on it so lost out on an extra £35 winnings

      Spoke to them on live chat and aswell as restricting my stakes on any goal scorer market to next to nothing, they’ve also disqualified my account from any bonus, offers or promotions, so now my account doesn’t get BOG. Safe to say I’ll not be using them for any horse bet from now on! Had I been aware of that I’d have placed the bet elsewhere.

  104. Wato 4 years ago

    Greg, yeah I’m pretty sure they do pay at the higher price. Def worth questioning that with them mate

  105. Shogun 4 years ago

    I done a £10 Yankee on your selections JohnB so I’m just waiting on Almanack for a bigger payout.

  106. johnb 4 years ago

    Greg someone had this the other day with paddy power
    you should have got 9/2 so enquire about it

    Bet365 are one of many bookies that offer best odds online
    Even if you take early odds and there is a rule 4
    If the sp is bigger you get that with no rule 4
