JOHNB missed out on a winner on Tuesday with nap Prince Blackthorn coming closest with a second-placed finish at Sedgefield.

The NB floppd at Southwell where the other selection also floundered, so January now shows a 3.5 point loss so far.

The racing thread wasn't short of winners yesterday as the regulars all chipped in and JohnB hopes to get back on track with his Wednesday picks.

Wednesday's Tips

Taunton 2:40
Pinkneys Prince 5-2 NAP Coral BetVictor

Ludlow 3:30
Bally Sands 11-4 NB BetVictor Bet365

Also advising the double
Pinkneys Prince & Bally Sands 12.13-1 BetVictor

Pinkneys Prince (NAP)
“You can always forgive a horse that makes a mistake and falls if they normally jump well and that's the case for Pinkneys Prince.

“Last time out he was going well three out and still had a chance but fell. The first three home that day have since come out and won so that strengthens the form.

“The race before that was his only run of the 2013-14 season and won well, jumping well. A danger could be Uranium but the French form is hard to judge.

“Also, his last run came after a two-year break so having another run so early is a major doubt to his chances and comes with a big risk. I can't see anything else in the race although Money for Nothing might be able to grab a place.

“But my Nap Pinkneys Prince does look strong on form.”

    Hey john would you advise e/w or you confident enough as a win for the double

  2. johnb 4 years ago

    Dino e/w would be safer but i like both tomorrow to win

  3. dino 4 years ago

    Cool thanks

  4. double carpet 4 years ago

    Whats your opinion on BOBOLI GARDENS. Hes been pulled out of 5 of his last 9 starts i believe and been gambled on heavily but to no avail. He has run in class 5 but is now in a class 7. Currently 2/1 fav. Probably not a race to touch but i just thought if hes ever going to win a race then he wont get a better chance than tomorrow.
    appreciate your thoughts on this one

  5. double carpet 4 years ago

    sorry 4.35 kempton

  6. Rookie 4 years ago

    Hi dc. I see napper has already tipped fire king in that race and at 5/1, i think il chance that. Strangely, the other im concerned about in that race and thought napper might choose over fire king is with a twist at 6s, as its bottom weight and is from the probert/balding combination.

  7. Rale 4 years ago

    Good tipster I follow on Twitter is also tipping With A Twist. Haha, now pick right one.

  8. Rookie 4 years ago

    I really like cayuga tomorrow.although im slightly worried by bakers mount as he has a good record of beating horses ive backed!

  9. double carpet 4 years ago

    Thanks mate. I probably wont touch the race but just thought there must be something about boboli gardens. I didnt see his last race but from reading reviews it seemed to do a bit better and just thought dropping into class 7 if he doesnt win this he’ll never win. Hes also dropped 23lbs since starting hcapping probably cos hes a pig but thats some amount of weight.

    Anyway what you think of WBA evs to beat HULL ?

  10. Rookie 4 years ago

    Thanks rale. At least if i pick the wrong one it will be an informed mistake!
    Couldnt pick a horse for the 2.20 ling either. I see temple road and pour la victoire mentioned but i think johnny splash is also in with a shout

  11. double carpet 4 years ago

    That 2.20 race is to tight to call. Do like cayuga though.

    Yeah that is a lot of weight!some tough races tomorrow. Might do a cpl of rfcs in hope!
    Wba is a tough call. I think id personally like a bigger price!
    hull last 5 LWLWL so followong the pattern… lol hull had a good result against everton and west brom had a good result in a draw against west ham ( i know, backed west ham!) WBA obv have pulis now and berhino seems to have found his scoring boots again. Id prob sit on the fence and call a draw but my footy bets havent been great lately! Not won one this year (out of about 4 or 5)!

  14. Rookie 4 years ago

    Looking forward to the Masters starting on sunday. Who are you tipping dc?

  16. double carpet 4 years ago

    Pulis first home game. He will have them ready. Ive lumped on them.

  17. Dancing Brave 4 years ago

    DC Boboli Gardens is one of my lays of the day tomorrow. Has dreadful form all over the place and even if it is ready made gamble I wouldn’t back it with fake money even in this dreadful race. Last twice at Kempton has finished 10th and 9th, in handicaps 5th, 10th and 11th, Jockeys last three rides at the course have been 7th 5th and 4th, trainers last three in handicaps have been 6th 6th and 5th – stats have a habit of making fools of us all but there is nothing there that says it has a chance and even if it does at 9/4 or 2/1 I would be risking it…..GL if you do though :)

  18. Rookie 4 years ago

    I may check the odds for wincast with berahino seeing as you are so confident!

  19. double carpet 4 years ago

    Dancing brave
    cheers for the info
    as i said probably wont touch it and you could very well be right about the lay

  20. double carpet 4 years ago

    what masters is it ?
    Excuse my ignorance

  21. Dancing Brave 4 years ago

    JohnB looking for a bit of an insight into why you place your hard earned in the hands of amateurs and conditionals when these are jockeys that really lack experience. I know the likes of McCoy, Johnston etc are prone to screwing up or dare I say not trying but with so much racing why would you choose an amateur for your NB who has only had three rides, to carry your cash ?

    Personally I would almost always choose a pro jockey over an amateur/conditional and leave out conditional/hands and heels/ladies/sellers/claimers and amateur races as these tend to be highly unpredictable.

    GL all the same :)

    Cheers DB

  22. Dancing Brave 4 years ago

    Your welcome DC, as I say stats can make me look stupid because I place a lot of faith in them but to be honest when someone is screaming about a 33/1 winner there is usually a reason why it has won !!

  23. dougiec 4 years ago

    dc,rookie Johnb,donny,you know how to put up headscratchers,Hands and heels amateur race,class7,apprentice handicaps 1-53 0-17 ding ding in there as well.Will sleep on those posts and again well done to everyone today

  24. Rookie 4 years ago

    Well 13/5 at PP for said bet! 11/8 Skybet. Il take ten on that. Also may have a few quid on berahino to score 2 or more at 9s with PP, 5s with skybet. Man city to beat everton just under evens?

  25. Rookie 4 years ago

    I know dougie. Think i may bet cayuga and new rich singles and double and thats me for tomorrow i think. My head hurts from all the scratching and the wife thinks ive got headlice! Sorry dc its the snooker!

  26. jevan 4 years ago

  27. double carpet 4 years ago

    That has to be a great shout too rookie

  28. double carpet 4 years ago

    Ah right.
    its all about O SULLIVAN isnt it. If hes in the mood he wins but couldnt trust him.
    i wouldnt mind a small bet on TRUMP at 13/2 maybe

  29. Rookie 4 years ago

    No il add nappers fire king for the patent.. £1 patent returns £226.

  30. Rookie 4 years ago

    Yeah was looking at the odds earlier. Its a tournament that selby is usually up for and i think you can get 17/2 on him.but he will have to beat trump who is playing the best ive seen him play in years.

  31. Jamie 4 years ago

    Hey John I was just wondering if you had any info on Hello George in the Lanzarote Hurdle?

  32. johnb 4 years ago

    Dougiec i wouldnt worry about the jockey because he shouldnt have to do much
    in Bally Sands we have a horse that will stay all day and very rarely makes a mistake jumping
    also think the trainer has done well finding a race like this which is a big drop in class

  33. johnb 4 years ago

    Jamie not had a proper look yet but will tonight and tomorrow

  34. Neil 4 years ago

    Hi johnb, I remember last year you said that in january on A/W pick a horse in top 4 of betting that Is 6+ in a selling handicap over 1 mile. 1:20 at Lingfield Bennelong or Matrash. Is this worth a go or am I mistaken. Thanks Neil

  35. Racingmania 4 years ago

    Disappointing day considering my NB won at 5-1 , lost a few quid in horses then again later on the football juventus let me down for £269 but that’s part of the parcel of gambling anyway moving on to tomorow

    Well I was going to nap pour la victorie in 220 lingfield but saw temple road so instead of one pic I’m doing rfc as my nap with both selections. As 7/2 and 9/2 but both 7/2 now.

    350 ling – plover – 12/1 Ew nb

    GL lads!!

  37. johnb 4 years ago

    Neil well remembered as i was wondering if anyone would but its just 6yo not 6+ & its selling stakes races not handicaps
    there was only one horse that qualified last january & it won

    The full criteria is

    4+ year old selling stakes races
    1 mile or more races
    looking for 6 year olds that are in first 3 in betting

    It has over 60% win rate & a profit of about 115%

  38. Scuzzle 4 years ago

    6.40 Kempton – Archies Advice 5/2

    Consistent performer seeking a hat trick and has looked progressive enough to cope with a 4lb rise in the weights and up a furlong in trip. LTO came with a good run at the finish to go nicely clear where his rivals who also gain weight won nowhere near as convincingly.

  39. Neil 4 years ago

    Thanks johnb. Will keep an eye out for any races this month.

    What’s your thoughts of Auldthunder in Bally sands race?
    Should have won last time but for falling at last.
    Now dropped 2f which should suit
    And with Hammond stable coming to life do you rate it as main danger?

  45. Mav 4 years ago

    Hey folks decided to have a day off yest looks like missed a few winners but as Rale also pointed out i also missed a few losers so nothing gained and nothing lost :-) heres my pick today

    2.30 Ludlow – Masterful Act 10/3 NAP
    6.40 Kempton – Archies Advice 9/4 NB

    Dbl odds 13/1

    I liked the look of Swivel in the 1.30 Ludlow and it was going to be my 3rd selection but have just went to look at the race and it is EVS with McCoy on board so wont be going anywhere near it

  46. Napper valley 4 years ago

    So after a bit of study i’ve got one more.

    Todays bets:

    Kemp 16.35 kings fire 6/1

    Ling 13.20 Matraash 7/2

    Level stakes

    I’ve seen a few other horses mentioned in the kemp race and still stand by mine . The fav might do the business at last but at 9/4 it’s not for me. Maybe E/W is the best option as i really can’t see it being out of the places. Im on straight win though. 

    Here is to another good day. Im working so thats it for now.

  47. Dancing Brave 4 years ago

    GL today Napper but interested to know you thoughts on Matrash Valley as it was a horse I looked at last night and found so many negatives it was going to be one of my lays of the day.

    Always happy to be proved wrong.

    JP thats not how you judge weights
    the horse carries less because its a better race today but as i said thats not how its judged

    If you look at the horses handicap mark today it will say 105
    Last time it was 100
    So today the horse is 5lb more than last time

    but actual weight horse carries is less than last time because its alot harder race

    If you look at Masterful on 105 carrying 10-5 then look at Drumlang on 117 carrying 11-1
    You will see that the handicap mark is 12 higher & the actual weight is 12lb higher

    But if Masterful had been on same handicap mark as last time of 100 then today it would have been carrying 10-0
    so looking at it that way he has gone up in weights

    • JP 4 years ago

      Thanks John, starting to make more sense. SO if i forget that weight in the description for a min, and just stick to the OR – in this race Henry (now fav) is 15lb higher than Masterful. So although this is a lot…Masterful was only second in a Class 5 race last (this being a class 3 today), and is also 5lb heavier today. So probably too much of a step up in class, even if overall he is carrying a lot less than the favourite…….am i on the right lines??

  68. johnb 4 years ago

    Pinkneys Prince (NAP)
    You can always forgive a horse that makes a mistake and falls if they normally jump well and thats the case for Pinkneys Prince

    Last time out he was going well three out and still had a chance but fell
    the first three home that day have since come out and won so that strengthens the form

    The race before that was his only run of the 2013/14 season and won well jumping well

    A danger could be Uranium but the french form is hard to judge
    also his last run came after a two year break so having another run so early is a major doubt to his chances so comes with a big risk and i cant see anything else in the race although Money for Nothing might be able to grab a place

    hi john went for uranium today after long break he did weaken late on in his last race but thinking he could give a better run today with that run improving stamina. pinkneys prince was going ok last run but i always think a fall can damage confidence he has not run for 48 days and before that pinkneys had not run himself for over a year so his one run since october 2013 was a fall

    thinks its a close one but decided go for uranium myself


  73. johnb 4 years ago

    Pinkneys was certainly cruising..definitely unlucky, but would have to question Daryl Jacob asking it for a big jump when it had jumped well all the way round.

  114. gus 4 years ago

  122. wtf 4 years ago

    Racing is horse poo at the moment. form out the window on some many races, way to many long priced winners.

  123. kris 4 years ago

    was on the earlier forecast as per the convo yest – thanks dougie/dc

  124. johnb 4 years ago

    Clean The Bookies no mate affraid of none
    i hate saying it but Bally Sands always jumps well & he stays all day

  125. Shogun 4 years ago

    Bad day for me today, Varsovian just ran an absolute stinker swell.

  126. Lostboy 4 years ago

    You sound confident johnb, fingers crossed we can get some compensation for the faller. I’m going a bit extra on this. Fingers crossed lads

  127. dougiec 4 years ago

    N0tee well done with sticking with Multitask nice win although I wasn’t on.

  128. Dancing Brave 4 years ago

    Shogun I don’t think Varsovian ran a stinker it was making its move when it was completely boxed in and forced back – was running on at the end and I think with a clear run would have won the race….one for next time for me….

  133. David Hunter 4 years ago

    What the flip is all I can say.

  134. Lostboy 4 years ago

    How do u sum that up? Omg….what the he’ll??

  135. Worth a punt 4 years ago

    Johnb both your tips should have won today. Unlucky mate. Luck will change for sure

  136. Dancing Brave 4 years ago

    Sums up my fekking day :(

  137. Kev 4 years ago

    Pfftt! Was that a joke?! Wtf

    • highseastim 4 years ago

  138. Lostboy 4 years ago

    Joke…total joke…amateur jockeys?? What the feecckkkk!!!

  139. David Hunter 4 years ago

    Great tip JohnB, potty the jockey didn’t know where her was going

  140. Rale 4 years ago

    JB 2 tips both cruising and nothing. How unlucky?

  141. del j 4 years ago

    What happened

  142. Worth a punt 4 years ago

    Whys he thinking he’s going that way on the home straight !!!!!!

  143. Chachie 4 years ago

    Somedays you think your luck just can’t get any worse.

  144. Lostboy 4 years ago

    I can’t believe I just watched that to be honest. To say I’m gutted is an understatement.

  145. Kendog 4 years ago

    What happened to the 2nd one? Didnt see it!

  146. johnb 4 years ago

    Well that is something i cant allow for when studying form
    as i said Bally Sands jumped really well but it comes down to whether or not you think the jockey was at fault for nearly taking the wrong course

    Me personally i cant blame the jockey as i have to blame the officials
    why have we got a rails covering nearly half a fence
    if part of a fence isnt safe to jump then the whole fence should be dolled off

    I thought we were unlucky with the first one but this is really hard to take because the horse stays straight it doesnt lose momentum & the jockey cant use a whip to get the horse back so sadly its race over
    i cant foresee what happened but sorry

  147. Lostboy 4 years ago


    Jumped the last 4 lengths clear, and the jockey steered the horse to wrong course even though it was home straight. Never seen anything like it ever.

  148. Lostboy 4 years ago

    Okay, rant over. Hard one to take though. Onto football bets tonight then lads.

  149. Kev 4 years ago

    I honestly thought they were going round a bend as was watching on my phone in work!! :-(

    C’mon cadmium turn my day around

  150. Lostboy 4 years ago

    No need to apologize John, can’t factor in what my opinion is a jockey error. A massive clanger of an error at that!!!

  151. dawnisrising 4 years ago

    Very unlucky again today jb

  152. dougiec 4 years ago

    Who is brave enough to back McCoy/O’Neill in the last?

  153. Aidy 4 years ago

    What can you do but remain positive and keep the faith with the maestro John b two quality tips which were home and hosed . That’s racing and these things happen John be careful what your doing especially with your luck ha ha.

  154. Kendog 4 years ago

    Good grief that sums up my luck past week nicely!

  155. Dancing Brave 4 years ago

    Good grief that sums up my luck past week nicely!

  156. Lostboy 4 years ago

  158. mig 4 years ago

    Last minute bet in the bookies on rose revived netted me a 7-1 win. Was a tight race though.

  213. johnb 4 years ago

    Knockyoursocksoff (NAP/NB)

    I think this horse will do exactly as his name says and knock your socks off with his run on thursday

    Knockyoursocksoff is a point winner in ireland
    he went hurdling but to be honest he was never going to be a hurdler, he is bred to be a chaser and we have to have this horse on handicap debut on what is a ridiculously low handicap mark of 85

    Knockyoursocksoff has raced 4 times over hurdles & been beaten 210 lengths & that was only for 3 races because he has also been pulled up in another race
    but as i said this horse is a chaser not a hurdler

    Trained by Gary Moore he knows thursday is the day because he has pitched this horse straight into a chase race on handicap debut
    he gets weight all round and gets a mountain of weight
    Gary Moore knows his chasers & i know handical marks & i think he knows just like me that this horse is thrown in here
    i am sorry that i cant talk about form because this horse doesnt have any but if anyone remembers i had a similar tip before xmas with a horse that had no form & i advised double stake at 12/1

    As you all know i love sticking my neck out

  214. Racingmania 4 years ago

    Shocking ride by the jockey on Archie’s advice !!!

  215. Kev 4 years ago

    Anyone have any anti post bets for Cheltenham? Skybet doing money back if non runner

  216. johnb 4 years ago

    Worth A Punt i have done to win but i wouldnt put people off doing e/w as its safer & we all knos after today that anything can happen

  217. Kev 4 years ago

    I don’t blame the jockey too much cos joe fanning is one of my faves, didn’t think the horse had enough about him tbh. Same could be said for baker on salmon sushi but we all know what he can do as well. I’m no expert though. Hopefully new rich makes us all richer :)

  218. Worth a punt 4 years ago

    Ha yeah very true but I’m on it on the nose and each way just incase.
    Thanks all today, have been trying to keep track of everyone’s posts and some winners and also some very close triples for me from a lot of you.
    Onto tomorrow and hopefully johnB and you all can land us some money tomorrow :)

  219. Racingmania 4 years ago

    Hopefully kev waiting for that for 2 out 3 on Yankee
