Racing: Johnb’s Lincoln Heritage Handicap Preview

Posted on: 28 Mar 2017

THE Lincoln takes place on Saturday at Doncaster and is run over a straight mile. With better horses running every year now it’s one of the most competitive handicaps you can get as the weights from top to bottom are so close. The last six winners’ odds have been 12-1, 12-1, 20-1, 20-1, 25-1 and 16-1, also showing just how […]

Racing: Johnb’s 10 to Follow (3yos)

Posted on: 27 Mar 2017

OBVIOUSLY my main 3-year-old this year is Churchill but there is no point putting up a horse the whole world knows about. Horses like him are advised as 2-year-olds when odds for big races are good, if there are any mistakes below just let me know as I have been busy while doing this. Tartini (USA) 3yo chestnut colt Breeding: Giant’s […]

Racing: Johnb’s 2000 Guineas Betting Preview

Posted on: 26 Mar 2017

THERE are five British classics in the flat season and in the three previous years I have been on this thread I have advised six selections that have returned three winners at 33-1, 33-1 and 25-1. I also had a third place at 25-1 so I think it’s easy to say the British classics have been pretty good to us. […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Day 4 Tips

Posted on: 16 Mar 2017

IT was one winner for Johnb on day three which belonged to Ruby Walsh and Willie Mullins who completed a four-timer. Our man says: From the 21 races already run at Cheltenham only 11 horses have run that I selected with 4 winners: Un De Sceaux 7-2, Let’s Dance 5-2, Yorkhill 13-8, Might Bite 3-1. So they are doing better than […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Day 3 Tips

Posted on: 15 Mar 2017

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Day 2 Tips

Posted on: 14 Mar 2017

LABAIK was the highlight of day one for Johnb – a horse he said he wanted to buy and “sort out” after it let him down in the stalls a couple of times this year. He suggested a couple of weeks it was a good bet at 50-1 and came close to tipping it yesterday. Enough people knew about his […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Day 1 Tips

Posted on: 14 Mar 2017

AFTER my preview four weeks ago only two horses I selected as early choices are running. Limini, who was selected at 4-1, and Beware The Bear who was advised at 14-1. Also meant to mention I was seriously thinking Labaik in the 1:30 and Moon Racer in the 3:30 were very close to being selected. Johnb’s Cheltenham Tips 1:30 Elgin 28/1 e/w […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Ante-Post Preview – Day 4

Posted on: 08 Mar 2017

RACE one on day four is the Triumph Hurdle, run over two miles one furlong and is for four-year-olds only. The last ten winners of this race had their last run in January or February. Triumph Hurdle Charli Parcs – Nicky Henderson 17-2 10bet After more time to study this race I am pretty confident this will be one of […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s JLT Novices Chase Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 01 Mar 2017

RACE one on day three is the JLT Novices Chase. It is 2m 3f 198 yards, has only had 6 runnings and was introduced to give novice chasers an extra option as a distance in between the Arkle and RSA. JLT Novices Chase Winners aged 6 or 7 have won 6/6 Winners ran between 32 and 53 days before this […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Coral Cup Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 22 Feb 2017

RACE three of Day two is the Coral Cup, it’s 2m 4f and is run at a fast pace. There are plenty of big-price winners in this race which shows just how competitive it is. Coral Cup Agrapart – Nick Williams 25-1 10bet I would have thought he was more likely to run in the Stayers Hurdle. Long House Hall – […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Neptune Novices’ Hurdle Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 13 Feb 2017

RACE one of Day two is the Neptune Novices Hurdle, run over 2m 54, and last year saw one of my bets of the festival win this race which was Yorkhill. Neptune Novices Hurdle Neon Wolf – Harry Fry 9-4 10bet I have already given a write-up on this horse under the Supreme Novices Hurdle preview. But as I said this […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s National Hunt Chase Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 12 Feb 2017

RACE six on day one is the National Hunt Chase, the longest race of the four days of the Festival. It’s run over four miles and open only to amateur riders, the most progressive staying novice chasers line up to give an amateur rider a share of the limelight on day one of the Festival. Willie Mullins has won this […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Foxhunters Chase Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 08 Feb 2017

RACE five on day four is the Foxhunters Chase and there’s no Victoria Pendleton this year as she is still on crutches. Foxhunters Chase On The Fringe – Enda Bolger 11-8 10bet 2015 & 2016 winner and gambled on both times. On my trip to Ireland to the Auctions I got to speak to a lot of people in racing from […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Gold Cup Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 08 Feb 2017

RACE four on day four is the meeting’s big one – the Cheltenham Gold Cup. No Thistlecrack for our 20-1 antepost bet but he has already rewarded us twice at the same odds. Gold Cup Bristol De Mai – Nigel Twiston-Davies 20-1 10bet One of my antepost selections at 50-1 and I still like him. In my opinion people are […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 08 Feb 2017

RACE three on day four is the Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle, run over three miles. Novices Hurdle Death Duty – Gordon Elliott 9-4 10bet Four from four this season and while he hasn’t run over two miles four furlongs he does look a guaranteed stayer for three miles. Watching this horse run screams he wants further and is a worthy favourite. […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s County Hurdle Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 08 Feb 2017

RACE two on day four is the County Hurdle which is always a difficult one to work out as it’s a big field handicap and you probably want a lightly raced horse. County Hurdle North Hill Harvey – Dan Skelton 7-1 10bet Good form but I would worry about the lack of a run. His win at Cheltenham in November […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Triumph Hurdle Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 08 Feb 2017

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Mares Novices Hurdle Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 05 Feb 2017

RACE six on day three is the Mares Novices Hurdle and only the second running of this race. Willie Mullins won last year with Limini “my bet of the meeting”. Mares Novices Hurdle Airlie Beach – Willie Mullins 7-4 10bet We don’t know where she will run but has a massive chance whichever races she goes for. As I said […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Brown Advisory Festival Plate Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 05 Feb 2017

RACE five on day three is the Brown Advisory Plate or the Byrne Group Plate or whatever it’s called now as it’s had so many names. But I still call it the Festival Plate, run over two miles five furlongs. Brown Advisory Plate Frodon – Paul Nicholls 14-1 10bet Must have a chance at big odds, won six of his […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Stayers Hurdle Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 05 Feb 2017

RACE four on day three is the Stayers Hurdle or what was the World Hurdle but was originally the Stayers Hurdle. Last year we got a good antepost bet in Thistlecrack at 20-1. Stayers Hurdle Unowhatimeanharry – Harry Fry 5-4 10bet Antepost favourite for a while now and hasn’t done anything wrong. Unbeaten since November 2015 Unowhatimeanharry won last year’s […]

RACE three on day three is the Ryanair Chase, run over two miles five furlongs for horses aged five and over. Formed in 2005 and replaced the Cathcart Challenge Cup. Ryanair Chase Un De Sceaux – Willie Mullins 3-1 10bet Looked nailed-on to run in this for a while now unless anything went wrong with Douvan. Un De Sceaux is […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Pertemps Final Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 05 Feb 2017

RACE Two on day three is the Pertemps Final, it’s run over three miles and horses have eight qualifying races to qualify for this final race.

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Champion Bumper Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 05 Feb 2017

RACE seven on day two is the Champion Bumper, run over 2 miles 110 yards it’s a national hunt Flat race but ex-flat horses are not eligible. Getabird for Willie Mullins was always going to be my choice but that horse now won’t run. Champion Bumper Western Ryder – Warren Greatrex 11-1 10bet Two wins and two seconds, his best […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Fred Winter Hurdle Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 05 Feb 2017

RACE six on day two is the Fred Winter Hurdle, run over 2 miles 1/2 furlong it’s a race for the juveniles. Fred Winter Hurdle Coeur De Lion – Alan King 14-1 10bet I think he is interesting and I like him. He was beaten by Defi Du Seuil at Cheltenham and by only 1 3/4 lengths, he then got […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Cross Country Chase Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 05 Feb 2017

RACE five on day two is the Cross Country Chase, run over three miles seven furlongs it’s a race that a lot of top jockeys don’t like to run in because of the risk that they could take a wrong course. Cross Country Chase Any Currency – Martin Keighley 11-1 10bet Winner of this race last year but later disqualified […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Queen Mother Champion Chase Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 05 Feb 2017

RACE four of Day two is the day’s big one, The Queen Mother Champion Chase, run over two miles it’s one of the top four races at the festival. Queen Mother Champion Chase Douvan – Willie Mullins 1-4 10bet Is he the banker of the meeting? Well he might be but not for me at those odds. But to be […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s RSA Chase Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 05 Feb 2017

RACE two of Day two is the RSA Chase, run over 3 miles, which is far from easy for first-year Novice chasers but one stands out a mile. RSA Chase Coney Island – 7-1 10bet Also entered in the JLT and is interesting, beat half a length last time out some people said he didn’t stay but I thought it […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Novices Handicap Chase Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 05 Feb 2017

RACE seven on Day one is Close Brothers Novices Handicap Chase. Run over 2m 4f this is usually a hard one to call and the closest handicap there is. Two years ago only 5lb separated the field. It is vital that you can spot horses that are capable of improving when looking to find the winner and it just so […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Arkle Challenge Trophy Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 05 Feb 2017

RACE two on the first day sees one of my antepost selections in Min in the Arkle Challenge Trophy.

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Handicap Chase Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 05 Feb 2017

RACE three on day one is the Ultima Handicap Chase run over 3m 110 yards and has in the past been a guide to the Grand National, a big field and a big priced winner probably.

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Champion Hurdle Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 05 Feb 2017

RACE four on day one sees the day’s big one, the Champion hurdle, run over 2m 1/2f it’s a race about speed and yet again it’s been all about Willie Mullins the last few years with four wins from the last six runnings of the race and the winner for the last two years. It’s disappointing Annie Power won’t run […]

Cheltenham Festival: Johnb’s Mares’ Hurdle Ante-Post Preview

Posted on: 05 Feb 2017

RACE five on day one is the Mares hurdle and we yet again have to start with Willie Mullins who has also dominated this race with eight wins from only nine runnings of this race.
