The Mailbag

Welcome to our team

We are a team of dedicated punters, initially specialising in the analysis of the mounting yard and now more broadly, in the pricing of racing markets.

Often copied, rarely beaten, we’ve been the market leaders of independent racing opinion for the best part of a decade.

The team has been working behind the scenes on taking our services to the next level. This new website is a small but integral part of that journey. We hope the simpler but more efficient tool provides you with a smoother experience, while we look to improve how we deliver our information to you, the punter.
