“Full in-depth coverage of the jump season’s leading fixtures – a service of great value to those of you who like to take an early price or trade on the exchanges.” Marten Julian


Mr Parker took the time to email Rebecca on 29 August to share this thoughts on our York Online Preview:

“I would just like to congratulate and thank you for the superb products (if I can call them that as it is all encompassing) you produced for York. Apart from being financially rewarding, the whole of the information was always interesting and so professionally put together. The racing at York this year was tremendously good and everything you provided made it all the more enjoyable. Furthermore the success rate of the selections was just brilliant and I would like to express my appreciation and thank you all for your efforts. I really do appreciate the amount of hard work that went in for all you provided” S Parker via email to Rebecca on 29 August 2018


We cover most of the major race meetings. Apart from Cheltenham where we also write a book, we tend to publish Online Previews rather than books. We believe that Cheltenham is the only meeting that warrants us writing a book due to the volume of information.

Our Online Previews are published in a PDF format and can be downloaded by logging into your online account on our website. If you are unable to download services we can email it to you. If you use an iphone/ipad they open brilliantly in iBooks. To see an example of this service please click here.


WE ARE TOLD THIS IS A GREAT ADDITION TO OUR SERVICE: Everyone who orders an Online Preview automatically receives our Postscript Service after the race meeting for no additional charge. To read about this service click here  Basically it means if you buy a service about Aintree, for example, you are not just receiving news and thoughts about the racing for that meeting you are going to receive a retrospective publication with long-term information in it as well.

Newbury Hennessy Online Preview: The Hennessy Gold Cup is one of jump racing’s most prestigious handicap chases and the highlight of a tremendous day’s racing. Given the news that is starting to rush in for the card, including the big race.

Christmas/Boxing Day Online Preview as The King George VI Chase is a headline act on a day packed with high-class racing, and Marten’s contacts have historically found good winners historically at the lower-profile meetings but this year it is being produced as a Supplement to our Winter Guide.

Newbury Betfair Online Preview: The Betfair Hurdle is one of the biggest gambling races of the season. This edition normally also includes news and information for a tremendous support card.
