Weekend Card 29 November


Edition 359

Our weekly racing publication packed this week with news from Marten Julian, Ian Carnaby, Ronan Groome & Jodie Standing.

Marten writes: It’s a big weekend at Newbury and Newcastle, weather permitting, but I am most interested in an old friend who is entered for a low-profile meeting next week. The Weekend Card also includes two new names for the Sleeper section, while Jodie has a few gems and Ronan covers the Irish scene.

Ronan Groome writes: After two very successful newly inaugurated Jumps festivals at Navan and Punchestown, we move on to Fairyhouse’s more traditional Winter Festival meeting, and in particular a triple Grade 1 card on Sunday that always resonates with jumps fans.




Edition 359

Our weekly racing publication packed this week with news from Marten Julian, Ian Carnaby, Ronan Groome & Jodie Standing.

Ronan Groome is joining us this week: “This Sunday at Fairyhouse is one of the most popular National Hunt cards on the Irish calendar with no less than three Grade 1 races sure to provide a significant marker for Cheltenham. Ronan Groome previews all three races alongside a host of other top class action across the two-day meeting at the Co Meath track in the Weekend Card this week.”

Here is a brief appraisal of what you get:

Sleeper Section: Horses that Marten has been waiting for, with a level stake profit of 101 points and a return on investment of 55% since the resumption of this service. Recent winners from very few selections include Tregony (four times), Tashkhan, Valparaiso, Highland Rocker and last season Sehayli (three times), Bullion Boss and Front View.

How do I download it?

To download any of our services you need to log in then go to your orders and locate your order for the service. Once you locate it please click on View or the order number to go into the order. Once inside an order you can view all available publications associated with your order.


These results are based on the reference sheet which lists a summary of selections. Many clients tell us they back selections EW when we have not specified this or they follow horses based on a write-up from one of our team especially after following a horse for a while despite the fact they did not put it up as a selection. With this in mind we prefer potential clients to download a back copy sample of our Weekend Card to see the style and the volume of long-term information contained as it is written to be an enjoyable read rather than a tipping publication.
