Marten Julian has acquired a reputation as a specialist in unraced and less-exposed horses. Catch up on all the news and his views from his racing diary.

His Dark Horses books are now in their fourth decade of publication and can act as a good complement to your research for both flat and national hunt racing. More recently he also introduced a second book for the jumps, titled "The Point-To-Point Recruits", which focusses on horses stepping up from point-to-point racing.

The weekend card is published each Wednesday, featuring articles by Marten Julian, Ian Carnaby & Jodie Standing. It covers the pivotal action of each week's sport, plus the latest news, views and updates on key horses featured in the various books.

The evening before any major race meetings, they provide an online race preview, with up-to-the-minute, in-depth analysis, original thinking and selections.

Another book by Marten Julian, titled "Strictly Classified" provides insights unto the minds of horse racing trainers and the methods they employ.
