Racing Post Reviews
“Tell me something I don’t know – This line features in films such as Austin Powers and Wall Street, and a brief comprehensively and impressively fulfilled by Jodie Standing. Standing broke new ground with the first edition of this book in 2018/19. All the horses are thoroughly researched by Standing, who provides excellent insight about a host of exciting prospects who will not have been seen by the majority of punters until they make their rules debuts. Buying this book is very much recommended and will provide you with a valuable edge over the months to come.” Ben Hutton, Racing Post (2019)
“The number one NH guide for me”
“Please pass on my thanks to Jodie for the insights she provides concerning the newcomers arriving on the National Hunt scene from the Point to Point ranks. I found last year’s book most informative and am sure she will have found some more gems this time. The information gleaned will prove invaluable for years to come.”
“Another big priced winner from your book. What an excellent publication it is. Terrific value for the price and still a large part of the season left. Thank you for all the time, effort and hard work that must have gone into producing your book. Many thanks”
“This is really good book, hopefully a long-standing yearly read”
“A fabulous publication with lots of facts surrounding each recruit”
“Looking forward to studying this fantastic publication over the next few days. It’s very well presented with some very interesting names to follow”
“Fantastic, Jodie. You’re back in your element”
“The detail about each horse is quite something and the research you have done is second to none. But as I’ve said before all the work done by Team Julian is of the highest standard”
An extract from the Point-To-Point Recruits 2018/19
Jodie writes “ Despite the unprecedented circumstances which resulted in a truncated pointing season, I am pleasantly surprised with the quality of horses I have unearthed. There are a few obvious ones who went for sale-topping figures, but I have also dug out plenty of dark ones who never went through the ring and others who ran eye-catching without winning. I am confident that this year’s crop will provide plenty of fun to follow this season”.
Peter Naughton's Review
Review of last year’s edition:
I was advised by one of my finest contacts to obtain a copy of Jodie Standing’s ‘Point-To-Point Recruits’; and was thrilled with the decision. With in-depth paragraphs, the reader learns about form, breeding, price, optimum run-styles and preferred conditions allied to physical aspects of each horse. I’ve been very fortunate to learn from some of racing’s finest journalists and Jodie Standing’s meticulous approach puts her right up with the best of them. All of those writers including Marten Julian and my Racing TV colleague Mark Howard stand out as their books mix knowledge with an intense passion for racing; Jodie Standing is cut from the same cloth.
This book is now available and is posted daily from Monday to Friday.
