Aintree 2019 – Starts on Thursday!
Following the excitement of a thrilling and successful Cheltenham Festival the three-day Aintree meeting is starting on Thursday.
At the time of writing the anticipated highlight of the week will be the proposed clash between Altior and Cyrname, who may be joined by Politologue, in the Melling Chase on Friday. Then on Saturday it’s all about Tiger Roll – are you for him or against him? I’m keen on getting some each-way value against him, but more about that next week.
As usual I will have news about a horse or two that has been laid out for the meeting, subject to ground conditions being suitable. One of my best pieces of information for Cheltenham was Sire Du Berlais, who landed one of the punts of the meeting in the Pertemps Final Handicap.
The Aintree Online Preview is published in one part, covering the Grand National, the full programme of racing on Thursday and the key races and specific horses of interest for Friday and Saturday. There may be an Update published late on Friday evening.
The 2017 edition yielded a profit to level stakes from just a handful of selections with One For Arthur 14/1, Double W’s 8/1 and Traffic Fluide each-way 3rd 14/1. The 2018 edition made a profit to level stakes with Identity Thief 14/1 and successful each-way advices.
By buying this service you also receive The Postscript which is a retrospective look back after the meeting. It features Marten’s and Jodie’s observations and information gleaned from each day’s racing, with pointers for the future, and it follows within two weeks of the meeting.
Please note this service includes The Grand National analysis.

There is a potential second update on Friday evening ahead of Grand National day
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
What format is an Online Preview?
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 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.
What is The Postscript?
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.
