The Bulletin Book

March 5th, 2017 | Marten's Current Racing Diary

I’m pleased to report that the Bulletin Book text was completed on Saturday and will go to print tomorrow (Monday). It will be ready for Package subscribers to view online on Tuesday evening, with the hard copies back for despatch on Thursday.

As I have written elsewhere I have not known a Cheltenham with so much uncertainty. Many of the big names are missing, while as I write running plans for some of the leading horses are still undecided.

I am not sure that I’ll be having many bets over the week. I have certainly never approached a Cheltenham with so few ante-post commitments, having decided a while back that there was never much value at any stage in the odds that were on offer.

There were no major stories over the course of the weekend, but anything that comes through will be covered in the Email Communiques that we send to Package subscribers on a daily basis starting on Tuesday.

One bit of news relates to Malcolm Jefferson’s Waiting Patiently, who will miss the meeting.

Bye for now
