JOHNB made no excuses for his Nap's poor show on Friday but believed the NB was unlucky having to put the breaks on at a crucial stage when the rest were quickening.

He reckons that horse remains one to watch out for. Our man is now 2.87pts down for November but aims to get back in black on Saturday.

He says: “My advice is to get on Saturday's tips quickly as the bookies have massively overpriced both of them. I think both should have been 5-4 or less.

“There wasn’t a lot between both these horses and either of them could have been double stake joint NAP/NBs.”

Johnb's Saturday Tips

Ascot 12:20
Red Hanrahan 2-1 NAP/NB paddy power (double stake)

Smart Talk 3-1 paddy power

Red Hanrahan & Smart Talk 11-1 paddy power

3 points lost today
November 2.87 point loss

Nap wasn't too good and no excuses but thought the NB Waneen was unlucky having to put the breaks on at a crucial stage when the rest we're quickening, one to watch for

Saturday's Tips


Red Hanrahan 2/1 NAP/NB paddy power (double stake)

Smart Talk 3-1 Paddy Power
Red Hanrahan & Smart Talk 11-1 Paddy Power

Advising both horses with Paddy Power because in both races if the horse finishes 2nd you will get stake refunded as a free bet up to a maximum of €25/£25. Expecting both to win though.

    Paul Nicholls view on Red Hanrahan

    Red Hanrahan was sailing along in the lead, full of running and looking sure to win when he overjumped and came down three out at Wetherby three weeks ago.
    He was keen enough that day and the good thing is that the fall has not affected his confidence.
    Red Hanrahan has schooled well since and is a very nice horse who hopefully can deserved compensation here.

  3. Johnb 3 years ago

    Red Hanrahan
    Anyone who watched his debut at Wincanton must have been impressed,
    Yes he fell but that was because he jumped too well & over jumped the hurdle otherwise he would have won really easy,
    Red Hanrahan was 9/4 second favourite that day and running against 8/11 favourite Royal Vacation,

    What was impressive that day is Royal Vacation was rated 130 & Red Hanrahan was at least 3 lengths clear, cruising with the jockey sat motionless

    On Saturday not all these horses have a rating yet but the top rated is only 126
    Nothing in the race looks too special except Red Hanrahan, so when you see what he was doing to a 130 rated hurdler it makes you wonder just how good he is.
    He has also had two runs in point to points when falling on debut when 5/2 & winning the other by 12 lengths

    Connections have always thought highly of him and the man who bought him at the sales Tom Malone was convinced he got Red Hanrahan too cheap although the price was £150,000 and that is some price

    This was Tom Malone’s comment after the purchase
    A four-year-old son of Yeats, Red Hanrahan arrived at Cheltenham with a big reputation, having won his point-to-point by 12 lengths and Malone was surprised at the price.

    “I’m delighted to have got him and he’s for a new client to stay in Britain,” said Malone. “That was the lowest price I expected to pay for the horse and I hope he could end up being good value as he came highly recommended.

    “Although there were only six runners in the point-to-point he won, he was hugely impressive and quickened really well to put the race to bed. He’s exciting.

    Done it again

  5. Johnb 3 years ago

    This is why Red Hanrahan has a big reputation & why he was sold for £150,000
    He really quickened up well

      Red hanrahan has fallen twice in 3 outings.
      If he finishes he should win but is he reliable enough to part with a largish stake ???

  11. Johnb 3 years ago

    Smart Talk
    Ex point to point winner that has only had 4 runs to her name so she is unexposed
    Her last two runs have been wins with her last run about as impressive as it gets, it was said in some quarters that she totally annihilated her rivals with an eased down 12 length win,
    She has only been raised 2lb for that win,
    Brian Ellison has already said that he holds her in high regard and it’s easy to see why.
    He also said last time that he wanted to find her a mares only race to run in next and he has found her the perfect opportunity here,
    The ground and distance is perfect, a top jockey has been booked and she is on an ultra low handicap mark, lightly raced and she is the only horse in the race that is still improving

  12. duncanpoundcake 3 years ago

    Tracker says Supasundae 1.35 Gowran and
    Gunner Fifteen looks well in if fit ,I’ll take a chance that Avidity might give him a fright 20/80

  13. Johnb 3 years ago

    elvis parsley I wouldn’t worry about the horses jumping ability as he is a chaser in the making who has the speed for hurdles and he actually jumped too well last time,
    The jockey asked for a big jump when the race was won and jumped it too well, he won’t make that mistake again.
    It was a heavy fall which would knock the confidence of any horse but as Nicholls said he recovered well and is still jumping as good as ever at home
    His fall in a point to point could happen to any horse first time out

    • 3 years ago

      This comment certainly came back to bit you johnb the horse cant jump hurdles and it certainly looks like that fall did leave its mark high head carriage as well maybe the horse was feeling something connections will defo be hoping that by its price tag they paid for it.

  14. Johnb 3 years ago

    The money is coming for Red Hanrahan and should get a lot shorter

    See coral have a special with vautour on offers for evens. I ain’t no tipster but to me that’s looking like bet of the day. And as a consequence makes me a little bit afraid to back it to heavily. Good info nonetheless :)

    Morning all great day yesterday at Haydock and then wolves last night with 9/2 and a 2/1

    Ray Bobbins Will be at Haydock as always myself with the jumps experts. They have moved the bends out wider at the course because off the going definatley a lot of heavy patches but its sunny and windy now which will help.

    My own flat picks

    good luck everyone

  19. dabberboy 3 years ago


    Saturday’s tip, 12.40 haddock emporers choice. Currently 9/2. A horse I’ve followed for a few years, had a big win off the back of it in 2012 however it didn’t win again until last out so ended up being quiet expensive! Only reason I’m sticking with it is it loves a slog and boy is it raining in Liverpool! Just driven back from their this evening so I’m expecting ground to be very soft tommorow

  20. Johnb 3 years ago

    boz1 they have moved the Chase bends out for only the first Chase race then for the other two they remove the rail and return to the inner rail again

    The hurdle rail has been moved for all hurdle races

    Enough is enough with the tips for me , ridiculous run from Red Hanrahan after being tipped up to be a superstar. Always read about confident picks and they never deliver, same as that Hong Kong horse in the summer that was meant to be a superstar.

    Hope that has boosted everyone’s banks for the day. That’s me signing out for the day
