    Thanks in advance

    At the foot of the main page are several options. Click "shop". When the next page opens on the left you will see a menu. Select "PDF Zone". When that opens there will be another menu on the left with, among other items, "cards". If you click on cards you will have a choice of cards with colours or without. Once you’ve made your choice you’ll find you have a menu from which to select date and venue. The cards are 20p.

    Unfortunately for my purposes, these are not the same as the individual race cards one gets before racing each day, with the betting forecast etc. But they may well meet your purposes. I know no way of getting the individual race cards for long after the race in question. If there is, I’d be very glad to know how.

    Thanks for that Hensman but like you I’d like to use the cards as they are on race days.

    I dont think it is possible :cry:

    You may want lots for testing a system, but if you just need a few and they happen to be for better class handicaps (class 2 and above and some but few class 3s and 4s) I’ve probably got them and could scan you copies. (Assuming they are from the last couple of years.)

    Thanks for the offer Hensman.

    Funny that you should mention better races as I’m mainly after class 2 and above from the main courses. Both flat and Jumps.

    Im not after loads perhaps 3 or 4 from each course, the data that I need relates to the spotlight verdict and tipster columns.

    If you care to put up a list of races in the last couple of years that would meet your purpose, I’ll check what I have. Alternatively, if it doesn’t matter which races as long as you have three or four from named courses, I can easily meet that requirement – just post the names of the courses.

    Do bear in mind, as in my previous post, that almost exclusively I have cards for handicaps, with very few non handicaps.

    ps

    I should have read your post more carefully. The copies I have all contain the Spotlight Verdict (though sometimes some of the commentary is chopped off at the righthand side – the actual selection and 90+% of the comment is always there). And the number of tips per horse are included in a column towards the righthand edge of the page. But the table I select to be printed underneath the actual card and Spotlight Verdict is the Postdata one (I use the ORs which are neatly listed and am interested in the draw appraisal where relevant). So although I know how many tipsters went for each horse, that is all I have in that vein: no info. on which tipster (apart of course from Spotlight) went for which horse, whether he napped it, etc. I hope this still means what I have is useful to you.

    Many thanks Hensman.

    Im not overly concerned on the on the races but if you have any cards from Cheltenham, Sandown and Aintree (Jumps) and Goodwood, York, Ascot (flat) then that would be great.

    The style of the race card you has sounds perfect.

    Yes, I certainly do. I’ll dig out three or four from each, scan them and email you the file. Please message me an email address to which to send them.
