MILDENBERGER gave me a nice Nap/NB winner at 13-8 with my other pick a non-runner.
On Saturday I'm doing something I've never done on the site and that's pick an odds-on shot.
Friday produced a 4.88pts profit and I'm 23.39pts up for August.
Johnb's Saturday Tips
Mustashry 10-3 L
Idaho 4-5 NAP/NB L
An odds on Nap/NB for Saturday, this will be the fifth odds-on horse I have backed in over 30 years of betting – Zafonic, Singspiel, Sea The Stars and Istabraq were others so he is in good company.
Idaho has always had good form but his last run in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes is looking exceptionally strong now, third behind Enable and Ulysses, he was beaten five lengths by Enable but Idaho was giving her a stone in weight.
The news coming from Ballydoyle is Idaho is in great shape and connections are confident.
Earlier in the day it's York and Mustashry. Mondialiste is the right favourite on form and is a favourite horse of mine who I advised when winning last year's Arlington Million Stakes but although Mondialiste is the proven form horse Mustashry is the improving onw and there was a lot to like about his win last time out at Chelmsford, drawn wide so had to be held up, turning for home he was delivered widest of all but finished fast. That win can be upgraded because of how it was run and I think he is well up to this higher class race and I believe he will take some beating.
