Jumps Racing is back at Doncaster

14.25 Doncaster MAX BET- LOVELY JOB 7/4 Bet 365

Good trainer FERGAL O’BRIEN and this horse looks to be a Lovely Job! Well named. Paddy Brennan aboard, ground be fine, and looks a good jumper. Was second last time at Leicester to a very nice horse of Dan Skelton’s which ran well at Kempton on Boxing day. Well clear of the third, form is rock solid. Not the best of races with many easily ruled out. Will be well backed, take the early price. Our source is very sweet on this, he does his homework and is very thorough!

15.30 Doncaster MAX BET- AMI DESBOIS 13/8 Bet 365

Another one that made a pleasing debut over obstacles. Here at Doncaster in Decemeber, found one too good. Looks to be by far the best option in this race. Wouldn’t even have to run to the same level to win this, looks a very strong bet here.

Two very strong MAX BETS for you from what is a VERY good source!

Lots of nice messages yesterday, and we have over 1000 people signed up in 2016, it seems the blog was a good idea to rekindle…..

Winner Go Collect


Binky Blue was well backed from 11/4 in to 2/1 and won, the information was spot on! members of the X22 Gold Club will be getting more from this source!

The Max greyhound Bet WON too! Was a nice price and did what we thought it would do, lead all the way and win comfortably!

It is a busy day for us on Saturday with Carl’s greyhounds all running (bar the pups). Three runners at Sunderland, Two open race runners at Towcester and VIKING JACK is BACK! he is having a trial at Towcester. Viking Cheryl is also coming in to season and she is going to a top breeder to be mated to Farloe Nutter, with us getting a dog from the litter! Viking Nutter is something to look forward to.

FRIDAY- Free Horseracing Tip…

The blog gives followers a free bet, absolutely free, for dogs and horses! tell your mates, sign up for FREE! The great news is we have some jumps racing today at Doncaster. Conrad King is on the train to Donny but he is going to get wet, it is raining here in York and it will certainly rain at Doncaster at some stage! The going though isn’t, it seems, bottomless….

I would be amazed if there wasn’t a going change later!


There is a significant runner from Nicky Henderson’s team today…

12.45 Doncaster VYTA DU ROC
Is not going to be a workingman’s price, but this is one to watch with bigger events in mind. Almost certainly will feature in Nicky Henderson’s plans for the Cheltenham Festival. Should scoot in, but is essential viewing if not from a betting today perspective. This is also the FIRST LEG of the Seven Barrows Double. The second leg is

15.00 Doncaster DIVINE SPEAR
Made a VERY nice debut at Towcester in May and is reportedly a very nice type. Goes over hurdles for the first time today, one thing we can be certain of is it will be both well schooled and fit as a fiddle. The double will pay out nicely at round 1-2 and even money, 2-1 for your money.

We are adopting the Gene Simmons principal as I call it, lead singer of KISS, which is an acronym for Keep It Simple Stupid! No point in over complicating life and these two stand out like a lighthouse in a pea souper!

We should have a greyhound bet for you for this evening later! Remember you can get posts sent to you by email, just sign up opposite>>>>>>>>>>> 

They are posted on our Twitter Feed @vikingjackdog and our pal Conrad King also feeds to his feed @conradkingbets

Good luck!


Open Eagle Lands 11/1 Gamble To Close Flat Season…


OPEN EAGLE advised at 11/1 landed the November Handicap at Doncaster, backed in to 15/2. X22 clients were advised to get on early at 11/1. Job Done! Our advice was…

It is the final day of the flat season, and it has been a big year for David O’Meara who is now one of the north’s leading trainers and very much on the up. The November handicap can go to the O’Meara trained OPEN EAGLE who looks to have plenty going for him. Danny Tudhope has also had a great year, and I am pleased to see him doing so well.
Open Eagle was fourth over course and distance (25/10) and trotted up last week at Redcar. The ground will be no problem and the horse looks on a handy weight, having finished fourth last year from a FIVE POUND LOWER MARK! William Hill offer 11/1, a great each way price!”

Open Eagle benefited from an excellent ride from Danny Tudhope as he annihilated the field in the Betfred November Handicap, the final big event of the Flat turf season at Doncaster. The David O’Meara-trained gelding was a winner at Redcar on Tuesday but made a mockery of his 4lb penalty as he breezed home by 12 lengths.

As part of the One to One Package members also get an insight in to the Nicky Henderson runners and today…


“Polly is worth a Bet!” is what our information advised! It was job done! TWO huge winners today from the X22 ONE TO ONE SERVICE! What a SUPER SATURDAY!



John Cooper’s Betting Times, A Week In Donny

John Cooper Bets

John Cooper has had a great week at Doncaster, here is the Betting Times of John Cooper Pro Punter and Top Tipster…

Leicester last Tuesday seems a long time ago now, but that is where the week started for me, DANCETRACK making a good few quid. Then I drove to Sheffield, up the M1, and had a great night at the dogs. It was an X22 gathering and it was a really good night. The banter was in full flow and that is where the challenge was issued.

You will by now have read all about the head to head with Motor Mouth. I am pleased with my performance, 3 winners from four bets and a winning nap. Estimate was my bet of the week and I had no doubt that this one would win. Sir Michael was at Doncaster, when he is there in person, that really is a tip in itself. I had also been told that it was expected to win, the work at home had been outstanding.

Cotai Glory was a great tip put up by Motor Mouth and I can not believe the bad luck backers had, another 20 yards and it was home for all money, bad luck. No fault of the jockey, George Baker had no chance. I had the lead, Motor Mouth was no at all happy!

On Friday night it was a meet up with Carl and Johnny (The Jockey) who had given me a couple of bets. MAMBO RHYTHM had won at 3/1 and a late bet, PERFECT MUSE followed up at 13/8. Curry, Akbahars, York, fabulous! Truly fabulous meal and highly recommended. Johnny is the skiniest bloke I know and he must have eaten more than Carl and I, who both must be double his weight! The deal was done and X22 had a new tipster.

Johnny knows his stuff. I know he sent out a bet on Saturday night that was second, but there is no 100% success. This job is simply about winning more than you lose. When all is said and done that is what it is, having more in the plus column than the minus one! I have managed to maintain that for a few years and Johnny is also one of the few to manage it over a long time.

I take my hat off to anyone who can make it pay betting for a living, it is a hard, thankless job. You will see pro punters living it up when they are winning, the highs are high, the lows are equally so. Motor Mouth is a great punter, he is also a great bloke and we will be working together with the MMC BETS. The Jockey will be a great addition to the X22 Stable.

Estidhkaar wins for John Cooper

Estidhkaar wins for John Cooper

Saturday, up early, the final day, Leger day! My bet was in the first race, I decided to play it safe. I had two bets, ESTIDHKAAR in the first and SNOW SKY EW in the Leger.

The 2 yo got off to a winning start, I had a max bet on that myself. I was done and I was ahead, only Motor Mouth’s NAP to go. It came down to the wire, MUTHMIR, we got on at 4/1, Motor Mouth was adamant this had a ton in hand. Thus it proved. Stumbled at the start, snatched up in the run and STILL was able to win easily. A clear passage would have been record winning distance. Motor Mouth had won, brilliant stuff. Rather than mope about losing, on the plus side we make a great team and we can do some damage together. We are chalk and cheese, but we get on. We have set up the MMC BETS, where we both sign off on a bet, THE MMC BETS really are DOUBLE MAXIMUM BETS!

Snow Sky ran a great race. Kingston Hill gave him a broadside and put paid to his chances. I was more playing for a place, so happy enough. Motor Mouth was beside himself to see Roger Varian win an English Classic. He holds Roger Charlton in high regard, almost God-Like Status. He says Roger Varian is  the next Roger Charlton. He was over the moon. He didn’t know if Kingston Hill would handle the ground, I thought it wouldn’t run, but it did and it won. I have to agree excellent training performance. Snow Sky is the unluckiest horse in training for me. He has a big win to come, and soon!

I am staying in York for the week. I had a few beers Saturday night, having watched the Irish Champion Stakes. How on earth Australia got beat is beyond me. Ryan Moore is class, the best of the best and I would suggest he was the difference on the day. Credit to Kevin Ryan, he can train. The Grey Gatsby has now won the French Derby and the Irish Champion Stakes. Brilliant horse, and they said the Dante form was no good this year! Err, think again! The Grey Gatsby is a good horse, hope he stays in training next year and stays with Kevin Ryan.

I am having a quiet day on Sunday, spending the day relaxing, catching up on TV and I am having a night with my lady friend tonight. Monday will be a day where I either travel home or look for a place up here in Yorkshire. I have seen a great place suitable for me, and if I sell my place I can buy this outright, downsize and have a few quid in the bank. I spend so much time up here that it makes sense. I love Yorkshire. I just love it!

I will be back on Tuesday night, I am off to Sheffield again, and on Wednesday I am off to Beverley. My pal has a horse running (due to run) so it is another social outing, again in this neck of the woods!

The jumps season is on the way, I love it, I am a man for all seasons. I love what I do, I have great friends and now I am enjoying being a tipster! Happy days!

Motor Mouth’s Betting Diary

Motor Mouth

I have had a fabulous 3 days in Doncaster. I am staying in Sheffield and have decided to stay until Wednesday so I can go watch this super dog on Tuesday! I had a great night last week at the dogs and look forward to another night out!

Well it is Friday evening and I still genuinely can’t believe that COTAI GLORY unseated George Baker, a few yards from the winning post. Advised at 6-1 it would have won the challenge for me! It is one of those things you have to shake off, no point in dwelling on it!

Baker falls yards from the line at Doncaster

Can you believe it?

The best news was that George Baker got up OK. It would have been nasty had he fell in to the path of on coming horses. All is well that ends well, but George was inconsolable. I have to say I was disappointed with the boos he got, what sort of muppet thinks it was anything but bad luck. Connections took it on the chin, the first prize was £40k. No one was hurt, so lets move on, but bugger me, it was bad luck!

John Cooper landed his NAP with Estimate. To be fair he was 100% confident and said it was his bet of the week. He bets big and gave me plenty of confidence. We had a great touch there. I know this started as a head to head, but I have become good pals with John over the last 3 days. I have had a great week at Donny. It is all to play for now on Saturday. I have saved my NAP and this was always going to be my bet of the week. It is a nice price and I am sure I will be collecting and landing the Head to Head.

One thing has happened this week. When we have both agreed on a horse it has won!  We call them FULL WIN BETS ! I think I can work with John Cooper going forward. I am pleased to have made a good friend!

So Saturday, I am getting an early night tonight. I will watch the Big Brother Final, I have backed Gary Busey to win, then will turn in. I don’t have to be up too early as I have done my work for tomorrow. I will meet JC at 1pm at the track then back to Sheffield. I am having Sunday lunch in a country pub then Monday and Tuesday I am planning to get some research done. Dogs Tuesday night then back to Berkshire on Wednesday!  I will be turning my attentions to the jumps now, I do really well over the sticks.

The St Leger on Saturday. I think the ground is too firm for the fav and I can’t see it winning. If it runs I will be laying. If not it is no bet for me.

I have told you before that Roger Charlton is my favourite trainer and I really fancy one of his on Saturday. It runs at Bath…


George Baker is booked for the ride and hopefully the smile will be back on his face. You can ignore the Newmarket run. She should be back on track at Bath. It is always worth checking out Roger’s excellent website  for news about his runners! I am really sweet on this one on Saturday!

Head To Head All To Play For On Super Saturday



What a day at Doncaster as TWO TOP PRO’S GO HEAD TO HEAD!

Motor Mouth was deeply unlucky as COTAI GLORY was well clear of the Flying Childers field when George Baker went out the side door yards from the line. As a bet, as a tipster Motor Mouth did everything right! The horse would have won, but it didn’t and the highs and lows of racing were encompassed in a few seconds. It was a great bet, great info. Just bad luck! That meant no points for the day. Motor Mouth says

Motor Mouth takes it on the chin…

“After a few swear words, it is all to play for, I have a huge NAP for Saturday, it will be a nice price and will win me the pot. I would be ahead had lady luck been kinder!”


John Cooper had no hesitation nominating his NAP of the week. Being based in Newmarket the Royal Runner was the talk of the town and John had this down as his bet of the week. Estimate won the Doncaster Cup for Sir Michael Stoute under a great ride from Ryan Moore. The Nap counts DOUBLE which puts John in the lead. John commented;

“Fair play to Motor Mouth that was a great bit of info, just rotten luck. That’s the way the cookie crumbles and the best result is George Baker got up OK. Estimate was my bet of the week and I was 100% confident there. Double Bubble will do nicely. Saturday is huge now, with MM playing his NAP”.

The final bets will be released at 9am Saturday, make sure you are on for the climax of this great HEAD TO HEAD!

Motor Mouth Leads as Both Men Land Max Bets Day One…

John Cooper drew first blood on day one at Doncaster but Motor Mouth quickly landed one to even up the first day and take a small lead!


  • JOHN COOPER + 1 point
  • MOTOR MOUTH +1.75 points


John Cooper talks you through day one at Doncaster…

It is early, very early, I was up at 5am to get stuck in to the cards today. Motor Mouth is staying in Sheffield and I am staying in York. It is only a short train journey to Doncaster from York and I have so many friends in York that put me up, or as they say put up with me, and I have a great time! That Chinese restaurant is superb, The Regency. Another top meal there and a great evening topped off a great day.

I had never met Motor Mouth before Tuesday, although I knew who he was and honestly I thought I wouldn’t get on with him. We are chalk and cheese, yet we do get on, albeit with plenty of banter. I suppose it is because we both live and die by the sword, slaves to Lady Luck and the Betting Gods.

Wednesday at Doncaster

It was not an appealing card in all honesty. I met up with MM and had a coffee and a seafood platter before racing. We both agreed that extending the meeting to four days has watered it down with Wednesday being the worst of those, but it gets better from here! The legends race right in the middle of the card, so it counts for placepots and jackpots I firmly do not agree with, although it was great to see so many of the old jockeys. Dale Gibson won the race and looked like he had never been away. Great guy is Dale, bright as a button and I was pleased he won. I never had a penny on the race, it was just a bit of fun!

The ladies were out in force yesterday, we will see some sights this week. Don’t take that the wrong way, there will be some horror shows, but the Yorkshire folk take the Leger to their hearts and I love Yorkshire people. I am actually looking at renting a house in York, I have so many friends up here and seem to spend all my time here, but the truth is moving is a hassle. Happily my place is my own but needs plenty of work. A project for the 3 months I hate, DEC, JAN and FEB. God they are bleak. I actually went to Dubai last year for a month in February. I loved it, I will go again for a break and go racing to Meydan, it is something else!

That is all for later! I played it safe yesterday in all fairness with the challenge bet. ANGELIC LORD was always going to be too good and evens was a decent price. The Meehan horse came out so the price went odds on, but once the race got underway it was game over. Interesting what Dascombe told the press afterwards;

Tom Dascombe: “The yard has been quiet, that’s no secret, so it’s nice to have a winner. There’s nothing wrong with them, we just had a fast start to the season and a lot of the horses are now badly handicapped. We need to have a chat about whether he’s going to the sales or not because I think there’ll be plenty more to come from him. He’s got plenty of options for the end of the year, but he just has a tendency to hang a bit. It’s already cost him a place in a Group race.”

Just a tip Tom, if you are taking him to the sales, talk him up not down!  Nice bloke Tom Dascombe and it shows you he is straight as a die! Well done for a great winner there and THANK YOU!

Anyway that gave me the upper hand and I put old Big Gob under pressure. Well I tried! He has more self confidence than God himself. In fairness CLON BRULEE was always going to win that race. Motor Mouth had also played it safe, it wasn’t a great card and it was important for us to get off to a great start. The 7/4 early was an amazing price and well done to him.

Clon Brulee opened 11/8 on track and was backed in to 6/5. A bit of a gamble landed and hats off Motor Mouth is in front, but not by much and it is all to play for over the next three days!

I may play my NAP today, I better get stuck in to the cards!!


ANGELIC LORD WON ADV EVENS (John Cooper) + 1 point

CLON BRULEE WON ADV 7/4 (Motor Mouth) +1.75 points

Motor Mouth Cleans Up On Saturday

Motor Mouth

Motor Mouth is giving it large after he gave THREE BIG WINNERS on Saturday, the man himself talks you through it in his own unique style…

I had a couple of frustrating days with non runners and what not, but normal service was resumed as my big ammo was fired on Saturday!

I told you that my favourite trainer is Roger Charlton and Captain Cat was the big bet of the week for me. Before anyone has ago at after-timing, please read everything I have written over the last few days! A nice touch was landed with the excellent George Baker in the saddle. Roger Charlton is a master trainer and a gentleman. I have every respect for him. I got plenty on at the early prices.  I told you back down in grade he was the one to be on. Reading the press report….

Roger Charlton’s charge had looked good in winning a Salisbury Group Three but failed to hit the expected heights when third in the Celebration Mile at Goodwood, although James Doyle, his rider that day, was quick to blame himself for giving his mount too much to do.

Back in a Group Three, Captain Cat travelled well throughout in the hands of George Baker, making smooth progress before switching to challenge down the middle of the track. Produced between Short Squeeze and Emell, the 15-8 favourite kicked on with the minimum of fuss, with Baker giving him a couple of cracks of the whip before being pushed out for a length-and-a-half win.

More or less what I said would happen! It is much better to read about it BEFORE the race rather than after, I am sure you agree!

Captain Cat Wins at Haydock

Captain Cat Wins at Haydock

Celestial Path, if you read what I wrote was also bang on and indeed turned in to a major gamble. I said before the race (emailed to subscribers of the blog)….

Roger Charlton I said is my favourite, well not so much Sir Mark Prescott, but when he has a 2 year old that wins first time out you can be sure it is decent. When he then pitches it in a race like this then the alarm bells start sounding BIG TIME and here we have a live one folks. I have managed to get on at 5/2. This is worth a poke today.

I know 11/4 was available but I give my agents the extra if they get the price and I take general prices. The horse went off 11/8 so as it goes, we had the value. I might be a big mouth, but I know this game and when SMP has a good two year old, winning first time out, it is a good one, this is a proper good one and I would take short odds this one is running in new colours before too long! But today it was gamble landed and job done. Keep this one on side, could go all the way and SMP is a very good trainer.

So Haydock today TWO HUGE WINNERS! I also had a special bet today which if you were on you know! It won at a nice price too, but I can’t say anything on this open platform, however it is all proofed or whatever the official terminology is. THREE WINNERS TODAY- I am pleased to have delivered the goods!

I got some stick, all in good fun, over the last two days and I am pleased to say that most f the same people wrote back with nice comments. I asked to see every mail, couple of arses, but I don’t mind, it only spurs me on, I love a good row! Seriously, I am pleased that we got the winners in, and it shows you punting is not easy, you have to work hard and you can not control everything!

Look at SOLE POWER today. I didn’t have a bet in the race, I know Cooper Man was sweet on Sole Power, he got no run at all, no way through, what can he do?  It is not Coop’s fault, it isn’t Hughsie’s fault, it happens, the margins between hero, like at York, and zero, like today are very small indeed. That is gambling and it is a simple formula, collect more than you put on, every month and you make money! Same thing this week, a couple of off days doesn’t make me a “useless twat” as one emailer put it! If I could win every day with every bet I would have packed in years ago with my billions in the bank. It makes me laugh, it really does!

I can come over as a cocky sod (replaced sod as required), but I have punted for 20 years and done it full time for the last 7 years. I know I make money, it is a fact, I don’t have anything to prove, but I wanted to start a service to spur me on. Winning is a matter of pride. I will win for my members, I can say that because as pro punter I HAVE TO WIN TO STAY IN THE GAME!!

Up Next It’s Doncaster….

So in all sincerity, thank you for reading and betting with me over the last few days. I am on the train now on the way home, back to Berkshire. I am using the ipad, what a bit of kit this is, amazing really. Makes punting more efficient, if you haven’t got one, get one, connected to the internet. I use a myfi dongle to power my laptop as well, it will change your life, it has mine. I love it.  Anyway I digress!

Day off Sunday, I need the rest! A day of research and catching up with the races I missed whilst at Haydock on Monday. I have been invited to Leicester on Tuesday, for the first time in a few years, then I am meeting the boys at Sheffield dogs on Tuesday night.  I have something very special to pass on Tuesday at Leicester.

Staying in Sheffield Tuesday then off to Doncaster for all four days. I am in the car, so will be a dry week. I have a pal in Sheffield who puts me up every year. Mind you we will be having a few social beers of a night. Sheffield is a great place, I have to say I avoid Doncaster of an evening, I don’t like it! Not like York, Cheltenham, Haydock, Aintree etc. Not for me thanks! Sheffield is great mind and I love Yorkshire.

Doncaster will be BIG, I have some big ones lined up, but I always have!

Speak soon, be lucky!
