The Cheltenham Festival Bulletin Book

The essential guide to the greatest show on earth!

Throughout the last four decades, the Cheltenham Bulletin Book has been recognised by both professionals and enthusiasts alike as the authoritative guide to the greatest jump meeting in the world – The Festival!

Cheltenham never lets you down, from the roar at the start of the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle to the finale of Gold Cup day. This year I have specifically asked my team of writers to seek out value, so let’s hope our hard work is rewarded with some big-priced winners.”

Marten Julian, February 2019


The Cheltenham Festival Bulletin Book includes:

  • Incisive and Informed Comment – an in-depth analysis of every race at the meeting by Marten and his team. Please note that Marten’s approves the selections for every race
  • A Statistical Guide – a look back at the trainers who have done well in past runnings of each race
  • Three Star Bets – the three best bets from each member of our team of writers
  • The Glance Card – a brief summary of each day produced in a pocket-sized format
  • The Irish Angle – our Irish contact provides a few original insights into the overseas raiders
  • Up-To-Date News – published just the week before the meeting to ensure that we include the latest news available to us at that time
  • Daily Text Message

Cheltenham would not be complete without the Bulletin Book, packed with about 30,000 words of analysis, insight and information.

We have been producing this book for so many years that many clients can’t imagine the Festival without it! Some clients call it their Bible. We love taking calls and speaking with clients. Rebecca says listening to our clients talk about Cheltenham reminds her of a child’s excitement at Christmas!

If you have not seen one of our books before please get in touch for a free past copy and information pack.

The 2020 edition is available to order now with our popular 20% pre-publication discount if ordered in 2019

“I always look forward to this time of year with the spring festivals just around the corner, but Cheltenham is unlike any other and always offers something that is extra special.”
