What The Clients Said:
“During lockdown I signed up to your publication ‘Ahead on the Flat’ and in turn signed up to your emails for the big meetings. I’m so glad I did. The book alone is wonderful value and very informative without being too heavy in content. It hits the spot perfectly. Then the added bonus are the emails you send for the big meets. It's obvious how much effort you put into these but equally it’s obvious how passionate you are about our wonderful sport that is Horse Racing.” M.W.
“Just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful Royal Ascot. The book and the emailed updates were the icing on the cake. Yes there were some losers but the winners made it a memorable meeting for me. To be able to reference the horses to the book was a wonderful experience and that's just for starters with more top notch meetings coming thick and fast by the week. Why I have never bought this book for so long heaven knows but I will be buying every issue and email Update from now on. Thank you Mark and team for a wonderful publication.” D.D.
