NO joy for Johnb on Wednesday with a second place for his NB as good as it got.
He's now 34.75pts down for January and says: “I was going to advise Warm Words at Southwell on Thursday as it looks one of the biggest certainties ever although after some rides recently I don’t know. Anyway although 5-4 was available it didn’t last long as most people have realised this horse should be about 1-4.”

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.”
