JOHNB finished December with a 48.4pt profit and was well over 100pts up for the year.
Our man wishes everyone a happy new year and says: “Start of another new year so stats starting at zero again, I do get busy studying all the time but I will try and put up more detailed stats this year and hopefully kick off 2017 with two winners.”
Johnb's Sunday Tips
Capeland 9-4 NAP/NB (double stake)
Won last time over hurdles and also on this day last year when he won a Listed NH Flat race at Cheltenham, ground will be fine and he looks a horse that will love the course
Lil Rockerfeller 3-1
Clearly the one to be on after his last couple of runs and this is his easiest assignment for a while, what I like most about him is his battling qualities, he never gives up and he should be able to finally get another win
- 1000 Guineas 2017 – PROMISE TO BE TRUE 20-1 Betfred (now 25-1)
- 2000 Guineas 2017 – CHURCHILL 20-1 bet365 (now 6-4)
- 2017 Derby – CHURCHILL 33-1 Racebets (now 7-1)
- 2000 Guineas 2017 – BLUE POINT 14-1 racebets (now 33-1)
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.”
