All our Flat Online Previews
Marten writes Online Previews for most of the Flat season’s major meetings. These include the best of his up-to-date news and information and are available to read the evening before the day’s racing. Results, both on the Flat and over jumps, have produced a profit to level stakes since the service began.
Because Marten’s selections are generally well supported this service is of great value to those of you who like to trade on the exchanges or take early/overnight prices.
