Dark Horses Annual

“The authoritative guide for over 40 years to unexposed horses”

Recent Press Review:

‘Why change a successful formula when it has worked for many years … the requirements needed for each horse to show his or her best are clearly defined … I was particularly intrigued by two horses in the Dark Handicappers section with just duck eggs by their names hailing from a northern yard … Julian is in his fifth decade as a racing writer and one of the main hallmarks of his publications is the professionalism of his research, and the toil of his labour shines through in Dark Horses. It will be a constant companion … ’ Daniel Hill (Racing Post)

Additional notes on this publication

Although we hadn’t published an Autumn Guide for a while the way we operate our business means that every so often part way through a season we realise we have enough news to warrant a new publication. This happened in 2017 and meant we produced a Guide and we are pleased to say we have enough news again this year!

Marten’s Dark Horses Guide (Flat Book)

Since it was first published over 40 years ago, Marten Julian’s Dark Horses Annual has become accepted as the industry’s authoritative source of information about unexposed and unraced horses.

• The Premier List – Horses hand-picked by Marten that he believes will yield a profit to level stakes, including a potential handicap improver from a low-profile yard and a very highly-rated horse that has just a maiden win to its name

• The Dark Horses – Unexposed and unraced horses from the UK, Ireland and France, that have shown the potential to win races This year’s collection includes an unraced three-year-old from a small yard that caught Marten’s eye at the yearling sales

• The Dark Handicappers – Relatively unexposed slow-burners that appear to have been prepared with handicaps uppermost in mind

• The Classic Previews – Marten’s in-depth analysis of the first four Classics with ante-post recommendations including a 20’1 chance for the Derby

• The Pick of the Irish – A new feature, offering a comprehensive list and comments about mainly unraced horses to note this season from both high and low-profile Irish yards
