Dark Horses Annual 2019

This year’s Dark Horses has a new look, now entitled the Dark Horses Companion and produced in a more succinct format than before. The usual features appear again but the Classic Previews, now called Classic Contenders, are produced in a more accessible note-style format. The Dark Horses Companion contains:

The Premier List – Marten’s select analysis of horses to follow

The Dark Horses – unexposed or unraced horses that have been brought to Marten’s attention

The Dark Handicappers – unexposed horses that may have been let in lightly

The Classic Contenders – Marten’s succinct appraisal of the candidates, some less obvious than others, for the first four Classics

The Dark Horses series of books, first produced in 1976, are widely recognised and respect as the authoritative source of information about unexposed and unraced talent.

Price: £10.99 (out now)

Dark Horses Autumn Guide 2019

Marten’s Dark Horses Autumn Guide should, in part, be treated as a sequel to the Dark Horses Annual as it features his updated thoughts on the Premier List and Dark Handicappers sections of the Annual. It is also a source of reference to well-regarded unraced two-year-olds and a handful of older horses that have been prepared with autumn campaigns in mind.

Last year’s edition produced a remarkable profit to level stakes of 80 points, with 28 of the 50 two-year-olds that ran winning at a strike rate of 56%.

The winners included Raakib Alhawa (debut) 25/1, Zuba 20/1, Canton Queen 16/1, Global Spectrum (debut) 16/1, Floating Artist (debut) 10/1, Repaupo (debut) 8/1 etc

The Autumn Specialists section also made a profit to level stakes including Dave Dexter 8/1, Morando 8/1, Reshoun 6/1, Archi’s Affaire 11/2 etc.

Marten’s Autumn Guide is the ideal companion to cast light on the closing weeks of the season.

Price £10.99 (out in early September)
