IT was a double dose of bad luck on Wednesday as both tips faltered in the closing stages.

The nap Pinkneys Prince was cruising it until falling on the third last fence. And NB Bally Sands was leading on the home straight until bizarrely taking the wrong course and ending up third.

On to Thursday and JohnB believes he has a strong selection with the joint nap/NB.

Thursday's Tip

Leicester 3:00
Knockyoursocksoff 6-1 NAP/NB BetVictor

Joint Nap/Nb so double stake. Odds have already shortened from 8-1 so don't wait for this one.

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 need to have this horse on handicap debut on what is a ridiculously low handicap mark of 85.

“Knockyoursocksoff has raced four times over hurdles and been beaten 210 lengths and that was only for three 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 and I know handicap marks and I think he knows just like me that this horse is thrown in here. I am sorry I can't talk about form because this horse doesn't have any but if anyone remembers I had a similar tip before Christmas with a horse that had no form and I advised double stake at 12-1.

“As you all know i love sticking my neck out.”

    You owe me nothing Johnb. I’m loving your bullishness though.
    Any opinion on Diamond Vine in the last at Wolverhampton. I know you were keen on it the other day.

    Thanks john got 6s

  5. Theunwiseguy 4 years ago

    Do you like the chances of Diamond Vine in the 19:15 at Wolvrhampton?
    If I rember correctly you tipped this up last week?

  9. double carpet 4 years ago

    LEICESTER 3.30 ASTAROLAD 20/1 into 3/1 ???

    Cant make this one out at all. Well beaten lto in class 5 upped to class 4 for this one. Beaten 7l by LOST IN NEW YORK who he reaposses on slightly better terms.
    Am i missing something ???

    One more thing the weather is rotten over here in ireland with heavy rain and strong winds which i would expect to hit the UK overnight so expect the going to be heavy.

    • swany 4 years ago

      Maybe this dc

      Timeform says: Very low-key start over hurdles in a trio of novice events at Carlisle within a month this autumn, and soon beaten on recent handicap bow. Stable/bumper form 2 causes for optimism, though.

    interesting but thats some move all the same

  16. Theunwiseguy 4 years ago

    Conrad Allen’s runners have run well of late.
    He has Newton Bomb making its handicap debut at Southwell tomorrow in the 3.20. Running over 5f for the first time for Conrad. In your opinion does it have a e/w chance? It was prominent in running on its only to starts to date for Conrad (6f and 7f) weakening 1f and 2f out respectively after leading. It wouldn’t be the first time I have watched one of his horses down in trip lead from start to finish.

  18. johnb 4 years ago

    Teenage amateur rider Jake Launchbury was banned for 21 days and Page Fuller for 10 days after a dramatic conclusion to the Annual Members Racing Excellence “Hands And Heels” Handicap Chase at Ludlow.

    David Bridgwater’s Bally Sands looked to be on his way to success under Launchbury, who was having just his fourth ride under Rules.
    However, perhaps confusing the obstacle with the water jump, which is bypassed on the final circuit, he appeared set to miss out the final fence until correcting his path very late, nearly knocking over the Fuller-ridden Petit Ecuyer, who had followed.

    Having lost momentum he had no answer when Martin Keighley’s Always Bold (12/1) and Conor Smith jumped to the front with Kings Apollo second.
    Looking into the incident, the stewards found the riders were “negligent, in that by initially attempting to bypass the final fence, they had failed to take all reasonable and permissible measures throughout the race to obtain their best possible placing”.

    Launchbury was suspended for 21 days (on days where amateurs’ races are set to take place), as the stewards considered that if he had ridden the most direct course he would have won the race.

    Fuller was handed 10 days because the officials considered her actions could have materially affected her finishing position.

    Bridgwater said: “Jake hasn’t taken the wrong course, ultimately. The lad is only 16 and looked like he was going to ride his first winner, so he’s a bit upset.
    “I’m a bit upset, not because I’ve missed out on a winner, but because Jake and the young girl have been given very long bans and in their world they might not ride again for three months.
    She was the innocent victim, if anything.

    “This was his Gold Cup, it’s been the plan for a long time, but that is secondary to me. He didn’t take the wrong course and I just feel very sorry for him.
    He feels bad enough as it is and the ban is just another kick in the nether regions.

    “They’ve done him for negligence, and in that respect I would have to agree.
    He walked the course with an official beforehand, but maybe I should have walked it with him.”

    johnb your double really was in the bag today….sickner to say the very least….but your attention to detail really showed today….your talent is very enviable

  20. dawnisrising 4 years ago

    john i know i was weak in the past and i apologised….never again…i was having a personal fu*k up but i learnt that the only way to make sustained profits is stick to level stakes and never chase….but i have a question….boss in boots right are you not worried about him? you see what i see on the racing post pages is most tipped etc and when i see a horse tipped 6 times it surely most be rated as dangerous do you see it as a danger over fences?

  21. johnb 4 years ago

    Dawnisrising i didnt fancy Boss in Boots as he is a better hurdler than chaser
    on thursday he has to give Knockyoursocksoff 24lb nearly 2 stone
    just think its far too much weight to give away

  22. johnb 4 years ago

    Theunwiseguy i couldnt fancy it but probably better checking the market but i think 5f will be too sharp

    Evening gents. Busy day at work today. Shame about my bets but 2nds isn’t too bad. Aslong as my horses give me a run for my money I won’t grumble and they did that.

    Bit gutted as i liked sea soldier but was put of by the distance, guess that’s why they call it gambling.;-))

    Tomorrow looks pretty busy and I seem to like a few too many so I’m struggling to narrow them down. I might just split my daily stake over them instead.

    Since I’ve got a few I’ll stick them up so you can take a look if you like:

    Nap Wolves 5.45 Lyngale 10/1

    South 1.50 Amenable 7/2

    1.40 Cody Wyoming 5/2 NB
    singles and double

    2.20 Two Shades of Grey 5/1
    single. Possibly add for trixie.

    There were quite a few horses I fancy at each way odds, but won’t bother naming them.

  48. Napper valley 4 years ago


    Just a quick, maybe random question, does anyone know what the normal amount of money gambled on a single race. I know you big races will have a massive spike but if you wee to take you common midweek race, how much is traded normally on a race……is it common to have £30,000 on a single race or £300,000???

    I’d imagine most on here punt between £10-100 per bet……on average so it makes me wonder what sort of money is put down on a horse to constitute a gamble… in Johnbs race today or the one DC pointed out.

    One last question, where can you find out breeding information. I see john you use it quite a bit and I’ve noticed it used to good effect lately so i’d be interested to look into a bit more.

    Sorry for clogging up the thread but hopefully it can be answered.

  49. Geoff 4 years ago

    I don’t know Duncan, but if I was a bookmaker I’d be paying the jockey to jump off.

  50. Sean Ireland 4 years ago


    This horse is probably mentioned several times already on this thread so apologies if ive stole someones thunder but i like the look of CODY WYOMING @ 5/2 1.40 CATTERICK.
    A horse in great form with last 5 Runs showing 12122, Securing creditable C+D 2nd on latest run 11 days ago behind OORAYVIC despite being given a poor ride also over todays distance.
    All 5 runs were on soft/good to soft so todays going is a huge bonus and this front runner will be wearing first time cheekpieces.
    5/2 in this 6 horse race represents decent value considering the form/going.

    I knw a lot of us here are not in favour of ante post for Cheltenham but couple of weeks I mentioned don POLI, who romped in @ a decent price, a 11-2 to win A race in Cheltenham prior to that race was mega … Now it stands at abt 5/2 2/1 …. Today I draw ur attention to dovan who runs Saturday the price is tooo short for u & I to bet it,but it does go straight to Cheltenham after so 9/2 prior to the run on Saturday to win A race in Cheltenham is mega … Only my thoughts hope one or two of u can tell me any different

    Favs aside not much strength in depth in 12.40 and 1.00 respectively. Taking magical magnolia 13/2 and kassis 16/1 e/w singles and double. Magical magnolia went off far too fast last time but kept on doggedly a sharp track like Catterick could play to his strengths if similar tactics are employed. Kassis is having its first run since coming from France kept on well in its 2 runs in france and goes in deep ground could be the 1 if favourite misfires.

    A solid e/w bet today has to be SCOTWELL who ran well from the front in December last year over 4m, placed 2nd running only 9l behind the leader, today the trip is slightly shorter albeit against tougher horses, this must have a cracking each way shout available @ 13/2

    So glad now that oor Douglas has ensured I am not going completely mad, this does infact have a real live chance!

    Others to consider..

    I lost a bit. Not ideal but the nature of the game is risk. We’ve all got brains. You can’t follow or you can go your own route.

    I’ll be sticking with Johnb because he’ll be firing in the winners again before too long.

    Alasu57 I’m not defending every body but johnb was righting “tell everybody u no about Thursdays tip” I no he can’t pick every winner but some people probably passed the tip on to other people or had a lot of money on it themselves and they didn’t even get a run for thier money… Disappointing to say the least but that’s life but I can understand why people aren’t happy

    I for one guys have slated Johnb in the past , probably because I weren’t following this thread for too long but believe me johnb has won me more money than he’s lost. Went on holiday because of Johnb! Even today I put a fair bit on his nap but unlike some of these moaners it was money I could afford to lose. Shouldn’t rely on his bets to pay your mortgages for gods sake

  150. Lostboy 4 years ago

    I can understand the frustration.. on the strength of johns write up, you would expect a better run at least. But this happens in racing. He put up the reason for the pick, and it didn’t work out. I put more on, on the strength of write up, but it was my choice. I’ll still follow John. Ktf lads.

    • cazzo 4 years ago

      Fair enough lostboy but you would not get any tipster in the racing post saying tell everyone just put up the reasoning and let it be.

  151. dawnisrising 4 years ago

    Listen i have slated johnb in the past but that was when i was punting with money i couldn’t afford to lose it was never really an attack on the man himself as he really is very good at what he does i came into the new year with a betting bank and i promised never ever to get angry over a horse losing again because its not my dinner money that im punting with….do a bit of reserch on the proper way to make a sustained profit….i mean talk to big time punters successful punters on forums and each and every one will say….you will sustain consistent profits with level stakes to your betting back its not a quick rich approach but it is a rich approach it will happen im not window licking chris…..its about not being a bookies wet dream

    If you want to make your money back, get on Worldor in the 3:30 at leicester. 9/1 with william hill.

  158. Luke A 4 years ago

    I can understand frustration, in regards to such a poor run, and the fact Johnb was ultra confident. But what I can’t understand is why people who seem to think John works for the bookies, or thinks he’s absolutely useless, continue to back his tips? You have no one but yourself to blame. I personally didn’t back this tip today as I’m cutting down on daily bets. Those venting their frustration with name calling and making absurd accusations are just utterly embarrassing. Hang your heads in shame. Or better still, just hang your heads

  159. cobramint 4 years ago

    I also failed to see any comments questioning John’s integrity throughout December, and also before this race today. I didn’t hear one complaint of “you shouldn’t be telling people to tell everyone they know about this tip”. It’s all well and good getting on your high horse after the race. The only 1 person who said it would lose was Jim burnside. Everyone else either backed it, or just kept opinions to themselves. Jim was proved right of course, and fair play to him for making the comment PRIOR to the race

    Rale, I expect better from you

  166. Lostboy 4 years ago

    I agree cazzo…it was ultra confident write up, and that’s maybe why people are so upset with the run. Maybe he shouldn’t have stated to tell everyone.

  167. Pat L 4 years ago

    The horse was tipped at 8/1 and was still 10/3 at the start of the race. I’ve yet to hear of a 10/3 or 8/1 ‘banker’ and anyone who thought this horse was a shoo-in is a fool and shouldn’t be betting.

    I went double stakes and obviously I am disappointed it didn’t win but I know the risks since I have been betting for quite a while now.

    You can either bet or not; those are your only choices.

  168. Ricardo blue 4 years ago

    Betfair had a very similar write up on jb’s nap and chose it too! which I thought was a bit perculiar, especially after looking at the form. I think each horse could have given it 5 stone each and it would still have lost.better off choosing selections sweepstake style using a large or even a small hat lol

  169. Pat L 4 years ago

    I should note that I still back John B because with his betting model and knowledge of the sport, all it takes is ONE good day to wipe out 2 ‘down’ WEEKS. He will deliver again so don’t complain if you hop off board after a dodgy spell.

  170. alec 4 years ago

    john b said he put his neck on the line with his nap today i just wonder him being that confident he must have backed it to win of course

  171. Lostboy 4 years ago

    Well I’m letting the lucky 15 run, to see if it pulls me back. Tealissio good winner there. I fancy TRUE STORY Meydan. Last bet of the day.
    Hope you have a better day than me!!

  172. dougiec 4 years ago

    There are always a few winners on this thread,moments ago lostboy with Tealissio,LukeA,Napper,GREEGE,Boz,to name a few It is not a One man band.I tipped a horse in a type of race I don’t usually back and it was beaten out of sight,Throw some at me,Dec stats for Johnb 69pts,bought a few turkeys for some of the Turkeys commenting today.

    • Pat L 4 years ago

      Dougie C: John B provided more cheer than Santa Claus with his amazing pre-Christmas tips but how soon that is forgotten. Of course, we live in a society with a ‘fast food’ mentality; too many of us are developing a terrible sense of entitlement.

      Anyways, back on topic; I guess no one is going to follow John’s tip on Caspian Prince at 3.55?

  173. swany 4 years ago

    Had a bet on the horse and disappointed it lost,but great comments on here never laughed so hard for ages.

  174. Dancing Brave 4 years ago

    Luke the trainer also said in not so many words that it wouldn’t win so as much as I respect John’s knowledge of the game and his ability to produce a profit I thought he was not going to use the emotive language in his write ups – his comments are a magnet for the get rich quick brigade who come in all guns firing when it goes wrong. The majority on here understand and at the end of the day despite a woeful run it is only a 1pt loss on the day, would have been the same loss to anyone betting win only if it was stone last or beaten a short head…

    Any for those firing personal abuse at John, your a disgrace and should be banned from this site for ever…over to you Mr F

  175. Rale 4 years ago

    LukeA, which post you find offensive? I only said that I am done with horse racing. Other 2 are just banter, nothing else.

  176. MrGibbs 4 years ago

    Gents gambling is gambling. If you are that irate about losing then you really shouldn’t really be betting. It’s supposed to be an educated bit of fun for people like us, so give the man a break. He will be back and none of you were slagging him like this at Christmas when he had his purple patch. Personally I lost money on this, so did friends of mine. Maybe saying tell everyone was a little over confident but let’s be honest nothing’s a dead cert in this game. Summary, it looked green, it wasn’t a good run and It had run its race by the 3rd fence but onwards and upwards!!
    In John we trust :)

  177. cazzo 4 years ago

    Luke honestly do you think he really should be saying the horse will win and tell everyone you know is ok.Put up the reasoning and let the the horse do the talking on the track he does not deserve the flak he gets especially when it goes horribly wrong.

  184. cobramint 4 years ago

    Rale. Haha I wish! Im the runt of the litter! The comment about johnb’s tips paying for my holiday was correct. I emptied my betting account after the successful period in Nov 13 all of which was won backing johnb’s nap/nb in doubles and it paid for my whole holiday. One which I could never have afforded to take otherwise.

  185. Luke A 4 years ago

    Read my comment carefully Cazzo. I said I can understand frustration in regards to how confident John was, and the fact the run was so poor. But I don’t understand the abuse. It’s actually embarrassing. All those directing abuse or sly digs in John’s direction should be ashamed.
    Rale, your comment to Alasu was unfair. I knew what he meant. John will come out on top overall. He just worded it wrong in saying Johnb has more winners than losers. But you were also wrong in saying John only gets 4-5 winners a month if he’s lucky? Are you for real. That’s an appalling statement from you. But if you genuinely feel that’s the case, why are you backing his tips? Same goes to everyone else complaining.
    I know John sometimes says things that end up being thrown back in his face, for example “tell everyone you know” etc. But it’s easy to have a go about him saying this after the race. How about people tell John he shouldn’t be saying things like that BEFORE the race??
    DB, I did see your comment quoting the trainer. But as we all know, trainers aren’t really to be trusted all that often. Rarely will I let a trainers quotes change my opinion on a horse/race. Trainers are as corrupt as anyone.

    Anyways, well done to all with winners today. Shame the thread has been taken over by the same dribble that happens each time John has a confident pick that loses.

  200. Lostboy 4 years ago

    To be fair Mr F..I think people are so upset at the run itself, don’t get me wrong, John puts himself on the line with tips, and a write up like that, but you can understand the frustration when a horse is essentially pulled up without getting into a race, about half way through a race. I’m certainly not having a go, but you have to expect there would be some complaints after that run.

  201. gus 4 years ago

    Right !!

  203. Big arj 4 years ago

    I know eff all about horses if I’m honest yet I’m way way up all thanks to johnb I went in 10 times stake in his bet today yet I’ll still follow him because he might lose 2,3 in a row but then he’ll hit one n its brought me back up over what I had :)

  204. Dancing Brave 4 years ago

    So was that a £1 to win then Big arj ;)

  205. dawnisrising 4 years ago

    Lostboy i suppose the only flaw you could take from his selection was that there was no previous form but more hoping the assumption would materialise in the race but then if you had good form you’d have no price its about trying to solve the puzzle which is the excitement for a tipster im guessing but look you just have to go back to taghrooda to know that when he solves the cryptical qustions posed by the horse you know you will line your pockets with silvee

  206. dawnisrising 4 years ago


  207. Lostboy 4 years ago

    I’m certainly not going to moan about johnb, I will continue following him, I know the good times are just around the corner.

    got going too late Recoba but at least placed

  219. recoba1980 4 years ago

    At the end of the day John B will be praised and criticised that’s part of the job so don’t know why people keep complaining about the people moaning about John!!! I’m sure John B knows when he picks a loser he has to expect criticism sometimes like today, but I’m sure he will be back with a bang!!

    • Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      Twyman9, criticism is fine but comments saying things like “time to go to Johnb” and abusive comments are uncalled for.

  239. Luke A 4 years ago

    Twyman, some of it weren’t just people moaning. The really offensive comments have been deleted as they were bang out of order. You’re right, John will expect criticism when a confident tip loses. Criticism is fine, abuse isn’t.
    well done Dougie!! And to all others with winners in past hour or so.
    If I was to back anything in last 2 at wolves, it would probably be Oly’Roccs 5/1 in the penultimate race

  240. Jcbjcb 4 years ago

    Doigiec i always follow ur tips but cant find ur 2 4-1 tips anywhere – otherwise i would have been all over them! :(

    Johnb ive only been following this thread and ur tips since xmas but im fully behind you judging by what people have said about ur previous good work! Ignore the naysayers – excuse the pun!!!! ;)

  244. John boy walton 4 years ago

    As I said weeks ago punting is all about good and bad days. You are the best about johnb.

  245. dougiec 4 years ago

    JP..check back,to lostboy early on asking if anyone had tips for Meydan. Response “lostboy double carpet put up True Story last night,I like Faulkner,Surfer and Short Squeeze.Dont usually put up other bets but best of luck” As I said I try a NAP and Nb as that is what they are,but obviously I back other horses without flooding the thread.
    Best of Luck

  246. dougiec 4 years ago

    PS Ive backed 7,8,10 in the 6.45 combination

  247. deekster 4 years ago

    Small e.w. on Mister Marcasite at 10/1 6:45 Wolves seeing as trainer returning to a wee bit of form and horse well handicapped.

  248. Napper valley 4 years ago

    Having a little punt E/W on dancing primo in the next.

  249. dougiec 4 years ago

    mmm that’s what happens when there is no pace on!!

  250. deekster 4 years ago

    Thanks for the Nap earlier today DougieC was my only bet apart from Johnb’s.

  251. Luke A 4 years ago

    Judging by that result, with none of the fancied horses even placing, it was a bit of a “falsely run” race?

  252. Punting For Fun 4 years ago

    Had a small punt on johnb’s nap and alas it was not to be but not many horses i have done do come in.

    Unless you are right in the thick of the racing fraternity i really think that so called tipsters are just full of bluff n bravado ( not a dig ) you are not going to make a substantial living from tipping horses and that’s just plain truth.

    But johnb’s tips and lots of others tips come in know and again and his knowledge of horse racing is pretty extensive and this is why i do the odd tip from the man but never enough to get annoyed when any lose.

    The guy does a good job in his theories and write ups and all his research but as i say unless you are in the proper racing fraternity you will be like the most of us just cannon fodder for the bookies, always bet what you can afford is the cry you often hear and you cannot fault that so everyone should just remember that and just enjoy the experience if you can.

  253. dawnisrising 4 years ago

    I agree completely punting for fun i genuinely believe getting inside info is probably the only way to hoover up with a dyson

  254. David Hunter 4 years ago

    Any recommendations for the 7.15 at Wolves

  255. Napper valley 4 years ago

    David hunter. You could do much worse than the fav in the last. Wouldn’t suggest silly stakes but I am pretty sure it’ll give you a run for your money.

    Having said that I placed 5 bets today and only 1 won so maybe I’m not the best person to recommend. ;-)(

  256. gus 4 years ago

    might chuck couple of quid on trending in last

  257. David Hunter 4 years ago

    If I had a couple of quid I would. Working more wit cents these days tho

  258. Kev 4 years ago

    Fair dos punting for fun! You obviously don’t know our papa too well :P mentioned 3 out of 5 winners here today I think. And the man does it very consistently. If you backed his tips everyday in 2014 alone, level sakes you would most definitely be in profit. I would prob say same for boz and dc and ticketyboo. Duncan is almost as good but just seems to lack confidence in himself, I don’t though :) great guys anyway. Thanks

    Johnb gets paid to tip horses so that is prob why he gets flack but he owes us nothing and has won the long termers in the past and will do it again KTF

  259. Charlie chalk 4 years ago

    Thing is as much as we all love doing it, and we study form and take tips we’re just betting on a few animals running accross a field, and if they get up in the morning and don’t fancy it then we dip out.

  260. David Hunter 4 years ago

    I’ve back all JohnB’s tips so far this week. Because I’ve faith in him.
    This hasn’t been the best week but that’s the nature of the game. He always comes up good.
    I’ve also backed tips from dougie, dc, busstop, boz and mapper. And Luke and some have come in and some Havnt. I just enjoy the thrill of the bet.
    So thanks to all the guys on here.
    Would like at least one big win tho

    • bad jasper 4 years ago

      The moaners

      Like it or not we are addicted to gambling and when John puts up a strong tip the more impetious addicts among us can’t resist a punt even though on known form not many would have even look at johns tip today, never mind back it.

      If you can’t manage your addiction, seek help.
      Johns tips are for responsible gamblers to decide whether to follow or not.
      If you can’t control your bets, get out of the game, no point moaning at John for trying to offer his knowledge to us, if you can’t use it responsibly

  261. dawnisrising 4 years ago

    Well to be fair he never said it would win and lets not forget that double yesterday that should of been

  262. Punting For Fun 4 years ago

    N/P Kev i have seen some good tips on here and the guys posting them and yours is a fair comment and no way anyone can slate anyone on here regarding tips because horse racing as far as i can see is far to hard and you get some really dodgy runs from jockeys etc etc which makes you wonder about the corruption that every one says horse racing has, but there is nothing the ordinary punter can do to change that and its just part of the game and this is one of the main reasons you could not rely on horse racing to get rich.

    The advice and the write ups on here are top notch and i genuinely believe the guys putting them up are happy in the knowledge that they are convinced that the horses will indeed win or at least get a decent run but as i said doesn’t always pan out that way and that’s not the guys on here fault simple as that.

  263. Kev 4 years ago

    Follow those guys and you will get one David. Dougsie/papa had plenty of doubles and a couple of trebles come in last year one particular favourite Saint John Henry 9/1 and royal trooper 7/1 double :) and dc defo had a cracker in September when I was in Mexico with 3 outta 3 it’s generally the footy or my own silly bets on the nags that see me lose money with the bookies :) good luck all. Only one winner outta 3 from me today, lucky lodge :( onto tomorrow

  264. Napper valley 4 years ago

    Oops, I meant little choosey. Sorry if you went for it.

    Onto tomorrow

  265. Kev 4 years ago

    Punting what can you rely on to get rich from gambling … Answer – zilch. And no one complains about these corrupt races when we win! ;)

    • raaljaca 4 years ago

      Kev, if a race or football match is fixed then it should actually be easier to find the winner simply by following the betting markets closely.

    • Punting For Fun 4 years ago

      Spot on Kev but the sad thing is picking a horse is hard enough without adding corruption into the mix if there is any corruption going on.

      The reasoning and info are top notch on here regarding the horses and i would imagine it will be a great source of info to many seasoned punters on here who have the time to do the research and follow the thread constantly.

      Do you think though that the majority of the punters really take this into consideration ? basing it on many may not have the time to read all of them but if that is the case surely no one could criticise anybody on here because the info and write ups are on here if you have not got the time or just plain refuse to delve a bit deeper then that is fair enough but i would find it hard to think they are the ones heavily criticising any of johnb’s tips because of it.

  266. Kev 4 years ago

    Surely anyone on a betting forum everyday and betting everyday knows there addicted to gambling :) haha I know I am

  267. Kev 4 years ago

    Just sick and fed up of folk greeting about match fixing and fixed races when they loose raal.

    Oh yeah and johnb is no bad too! Highlight of 2014 was deeds not words 40/1 Newbury in July :)

  268. Kev 4 years ago

    Raal when u gonna start sticking up your 40/1 shot donkeys again?? Still awaiting payment from package from cartel. But on a serious note I hope everything is getting better or you are coping better with family troubles raal, I miss your chit chat on here mate. KTF

    • bad jasper 4 years ago

      Worst since the John Barnes days I said bud
      The Scots league has deteriorated year by year and Celtic have followed this trend.
      They seemed to be knocked out of Europe every other week earlier this season.
      One of their better players virgin van Dick is off soon and will probably be replaced by some legend from Celtics crap managers old club in lapland

  270. azz the wigan 4 years ago

    sorry wrong thread i did not reallise i had come on the boxing thread

  271. Napper valley 4 years ago

    Not sure about this whole fixed business. Clearly gambling is a risk and if the favs won all the time it wouldn’t be a business.

    The trainers and jockeys don’t make the prices the bookies do. It’s not there fault the horse there on is deemed to be the best and sometimes doesn’t run it’s race. I do hate when you see the fav dropped out the back and that does smell a little but it’s the nature of the beast

    If you look back at the last 2 you can make clear arguments for both the winners who were running off low marks for them.

    Since horses run a lot more than most human athletes do they have to be primed for certain races and that will mean they’ll end up trying to get a lower handicap mark to do this. That’s the way it is.

    One thing we all need to remember is that bookies have teams if people gathering all sorts of info on horses where as most of us will have just ourselves and the bloke in the bookies who thinks he’s got the tip of the century to help.

    If you keep to level stakes and remember that your job pays your salary then you’ll be alright.

    Ohh and leave you mobile at home when you’ve had a drink.

  272. Rale 4 years ago

    LukeA, I really like JB as a person and I can’t blame him for my loses, but people are getting carried away with December 60+ profit. Check stats for other months and you will see that I am pretty close with my average 4-5 winners per month estimate. So far this month 2/17. Yes some are big winners, but for Alasu to say that there are more winners than losers is complete rubbish. Again nobody forces us to follow him and he shouldn’t get any abuse, but lets be realistic. Sorry if I offended anyone. I am taking a break from horse racing and I will not be bothering anyone anymore. Hope JB will do it for you guys. All the best.

  273. Kev 4 years ago

    Punting same thing happened this time last year, johnb had a great week in dec/jan and then loads more people from footy thread etc heard about it and started following, then when he went on a barren run the abuse followed. Same thing has happened here I think, he had a good run in December and new people have started following

  274. Duncan Poundcake 4 years ago

    Kev can you not mention Muggleton or Biggins ever again as I am having some horrible flashbacks and have come out in a cold sweat.

  275. dawnisrising 4 years ago

    I never actually found out what johnbs pts total was for 2014 anyone know?

  276. Kev 4 years ago

    Haha Duncan get back to tipping those winners u usually do. Never forget that post with u shaking like a leaf when u won large last year :) had me smiling as you deserve it more than most here. Also remember the debate when u arrived on the scene with some crazy winners about if pound cake was actually your surname ! Haha

  277. dougiec 4 years ago

    take the mince out of these,Times In Anetefka,Period Piece,Togoville,Tsar Paul,ROSE ANGEL,and so on until we can fathom out a GOOJ.

  278. Duncan Poundcake 4 years ago

    Having an early look at Dundalk ,PJ Smullen rides Period Piece for Jessie Harrington ,ran a nice race first time out at the course and should improve for that.

  279. double carpet 4 years ago

    Just thought id make it 300 posts for today!!

  280. Rookie 4 years ago

    Well today sure did knock my socks off and i have no funds to replace them! Ehat happened at wolves tonight? So many favourites not winning! As usual my picks were well backed but came nowhere. Apologies to anyone who backed them.
    Onto tomorrow dougie i need a good gooj for tomorrow! Armed guard?all about the lynams!13/2 seems fair?

  281. Rookie 4 years ago

    Just saw your posts re dundalk!im gonna try and get an early price on smullen!

  282. Kendog 4 years ago

    I think if we all smoke some of what Kevs on, everything will be ok! :)

  283. dougiec 4 years ago

    Think Im with you rookie deperate race to finish with making hurdler favourite 13/2 with PP looking tempting,as you said.

  284. JP 4 years ago

    Hope johnb hasnt been scared off by the haters….hes usually posted his tips by now!!! :)

    • Mr Fixit 4 years ago

      JP, that will never happen.

      • macca the red 4 years ago

        what do you think scorers for barca mr f messi starts

        • Mr Fixit 4 years ago

          macca, I’ll go with Messi as I’ve said.

      • JP 4 years ago

        Glad to hear it mate….im expecting a massive double tomorrow!!!! :)

  285. MrGibbs 4 years ago

    Thoughts for the Dubai cup tomorrow? Personally Bayern looks too good but would love people’s opinions

  286. Rookie 4 years ago

    Yeah not the most appealing race.can be taken e/w at that price. Im not sure where to start after todays results. If i dont find a winner tomorrow il take a break and stop posting to save people money!
    Another bet that i do like for tomorrow though is dewala in the 15.15 doncaster at 13/2.

  287. dougiec 4 years ago

    You could try Rose Angel and Sharjah,which is what Im considering.but I will look now at your Donny tip mate

  288. DD21 4 years ago

    This negativity only seems to happen when he is overly confident about a horse. Yes we should bet level stakes but people tend to get excited and go overboard and this is where the problem is. I think in his write ups he should not write things like ‘bet of the year’ etc and this way people won’t be tempted to stake more than usual and then cry when it doesn’t win.

  289. Rookie 4 years ago

    Two names that i feel i have to have a few quid on are
    12.45 huntingdon johns luck 5/1
    16 45 wolves rich again 11/2
    As i say they are based on name only because i cant even pick my nose at the minute im resorting to another approach. I think the reasons for the names chosen are obvious!

  290. double carpet 4 years ago

    The way PRESCOTT has started the year
    DONT BE 2.15 Lingfield has to go on the shortlist again surely. Its his toughest race yet but with BRIGLIADORO franking the form yesterday he should be very close.

  291. Rookie 4 years ago

    Hmm im thinking there may be better value in that race now.

  292. Kev 4 years ago

    Virgil is pretty assured on the ball jasper like most Dutch and is tall so good in the air but he is bit slack at the back. Decent on a one v one. But often found dreaming. Watch legia game. Best players are lustig and johansen IMO. Only problem with lustig is he often gets injured. Wasn’t a big problem when they sold Forster(who is a clown) wanyama has been biggest loss then hooper. Anyway sorry for dotty chat on racing thread

  293. Kev 4 years ago


  294. Napper valley 4 years ago

    Evening. Going through the cards now and I’ll put up my list tonight then tomorrow narrow down to my best bets.

    Dun 6.05 ability N deliver
    Dun 19.35 fairy foxglove
    Ling 13.05 Shadows of the night (love a maiden)
    Ling 15.55 Rowan ridge 17/2
    Ling 14.50 Artemis 11/4
    Wolves 16.15 master of disguise
    Wolves dream an hope 7/2
    Wolves 18.45 amadeity

    I know it’s a lot but now it’s my job to narrow these down.

    At the moment I’m struggling
