Do they still do a best bets haven't seen one in years. Oh and probably no. And guess what no one will give a shit. Well no one in miss management. 

Claude, I gather that you are some form of Troglodyte and must only exit the cave on rare occasions. There are plenty of places where one can purchase a Best Bets in my area. :)

Cubes is on vacation again with Mrs Cubes and the ungrateful spawn .

Went to Makarora today....obviously to see the mohua and the famous "Blue Pools"

There were no Best Bets in town .

As an aside there was no Trackside on Freeview either but we believe that is covered in another thread .

In fairness there is only a DoC office open and Cubity is not sure they stock the magazine in general .

But everyone was very friendly and we tipped them Cubemisters' runner @ Phar Lap tomorrow anyway and went on our merry way...

I think my question has been answered,went to a couple of places after work and nothing there.Did anyone near the top of the South get their hands on one?.

BB will soon only be available in TAB's.

Only 2 in Taranaki, both at New Plymouth, and on a Friday, no Thursday fields anymore. Looks like Informant will have paper monopoly but at extra cost to us.

And it looks like in the South Island they are only stocking it in Canterbury and in Otago/Southland....and bugger the rest of the South.Whoever makes these decisions they obviously need their head reads.

Can you not use a computer to look up form? maybe a tablet? or a smart phone say?.

Why would you be wasting $5 on buying a publication that doesn't have enough info in it to be useful anyway when compared to the internet.

There are countless good form sites you can go to to be great info and a lot of them are on Android or Apple.

NZ TAB and NZ racing for starters.

I'm still the same especially if I'm going on track - get either the Informant or BB to compile the study notes etc from all the other sources !
