IT was a 2pt profit for Johnb on Thursday thanks to his double-stake tip Silent Attack and best odds guaranteed at 2-1.

Our man is now 11.82pts up for June and after a few meetings at Newcastle it’s time to dip his feet into the Tapeta.

Johnb says: “I am doing something here I don’t normally do, backing a horse each way and at a short price. The reason is the ground conditions. Looking at the runners I am expecting at least three horses to be pulled out so get your money on now because if there are fewer than eight runners you will still get 3 places.

“This is the second time I have advised each way because I thought there would be fewer than eight runners and the was last time when Special Tiara came second, This is one of the major advantages we as punters have over bookies.”

  1. the notorious 2 years ago

    John would you be worried that Idaho might go for home to soon and empty? Theres only so long Moore will hold Idaho together before asking him to quicken.

    • Johnb 2 years ago

      It’s not really going for home too early it’s getting the early speed right, Heffernan in the Derby was going too fast early and Moore on US Army Ranger went too slow early, that’s what the finishing speeds of those horses said

  2. aduffy 2 years ago

    Hi johnb what makes u think Churchill will beat Caravaggio in the Guineans after its spectacular win at ascot are there stamina doubts

    • Johnb 2 years ago

      I am not keen on Caravaggio’s breeding, far too short a price for a horse that not guaranteed to get a mile, I don’t think he will get the distance

      Aidan O’Brien has said
      Caravaggio is very fast and a real sprinter,
      Churchill has an awful lot of class and not short of speed

  3. rafe 2 years ago

    Moore will undoubtedly give Idaho the best ride he Aidan could ask for, he’s the best jockey in the world for a reason IMO

    • the notorious 2 years ago

      Typically when fancied runners are withdrawn a race can then turn into tactics. Imo the only realistic threat to Idaho is his stablemate Port Douglas. I would like to see Idaho ridden with some restraint rather then the usual tracking front runner. The one thing Moore will need is patience because at the current rate the going will be soft by Saturday.

    What bookies do the NR/EW sticks bets??

  6. dubz 2 years ago

    Why is Idaho still being tipped daily at 6/1 to win the Irish?
    That ship sailed days ago?
    Surely all us followers are already on!! And if you was silly enough not to then you have missed the boat!

    • Alves 2 years ago

      You talking about me dubz?? Not on racing thread everyday, Just when there’s nae fitbaw

      I backed 2 the MJ horses tonight at Hamilton, singles and double, was up after 1st came in at 13/8 but next got caught late on by Hidden ??? That came flying through from 1st to last

      • Johnb 2 years ago

        dubz Idaho isn’t being tipped daily at 6/1
        It was tipped on one day at that price and has just been left up because it’s a bet that’s still running, because it’s up everyday it’s not being tipped everyday

    Afternoon all!

    First post in quite a while but ive been here, quietly, on and off. Well done to everyone who’s pickin (and sharing) winners. Anyway the reason for the post is ive had some info I thought i’d share.

    My boss has a few horses with david o’meara, one of which runs tonight. Its his 3rd run this season, the first to were below par but the trainer says it is now race fit and should be winning within its next couple of races.

    8.50 Newcastle. TAVERNER EW

  25. on the bob 2 years ago

    Those are the margins in racing. My odds on got trapped badly but just got home by the smallest of margins. Very lucky with that.

    Well done to all those that have had winners.

  26. agoose 2 years ago

    Evening all, not posted in a while but ive had a good word for one tonight.

    Newcastle 8.50 TAVERNER 12/1

    Trainer says it should be winning in the next couple of races, well handicapped following 2 below par runs this season.

  35. duncanpoundcake 2 years ago

    Ashamed to say that I bottled my Nap/Nb double and cashed out ,I really dont think all is well at Bedford House
    Wouldn’t rule out Tim Easterby Dougie

  36. duncanpoundcake 2 years ago

    My Grandfather always said when In doubt go with the Aga Khan , I’d be happy to lay Idaho at 3.9 if I had backed him at 6.2 and enjoy the race .Hope Idaho wins for the thread GL.

  37. dougiec 2 years ago

    Just cant get my head round the Plate being run on tapioca DP,Ive backed Seamour and Gabriel so we will see,
    Glad you won a few bob today.

    • elvis parsley 2 years ago

      Its the plate in name only.
      Running it on dirt has devalued it and its just become yet another impossible Saturday handicap for dirt donkeys

    • duncanpoundcake 2 years ago

      Sadly it’s the future mate , Newcastle doesn’t look very wide on the telly maybe look for prominent runners from a low draw in big fields ,just a thought GL

  38. peter daryll 2 years ago

    Thank you dougie c !

    Tips up early for tomorrow

    Poets society 5/4 nap 1.55 Newcastle 1.55
    This horse has strong form and field looks ok. Drop in class

    Devils bridge 5/4 NB
    2.10 Newmarket
    Quite promising field , was eye catching debut closing in on Frankuus who ran well at ascot

    Double 5-1

  39. jimron12 2 years ago

    Thank god sainted romped home!

  40. 2 years ago

    Another very competitive Saturday and to be honest I don;t fancy anything in the two big races (Plate / Derby) it has to be easier to find a winner or two elsewhere.


    2:10 – HARTSWELL @ 5/1
    5:35 – CHASTUSHKA @ 6/4


    4:00 – POWERALLIED @ 4/1
    4:35 – BALLESTEROS @ 4/1

    They will be my selections.
