will be interesting to see what its like when things settle down & the new schedule becomes more familiar

but the fact is there is just FAR too much racing

and the cake can only be divided up so many times

waste of time .its ok if u bet £20 but pointless trying to get matched for anything decent,there is going to be false markets as some people will take any odds just to get matched

Not surprised in the slightest are we? Who’s going to continually bet on something that you cannot possibly win on in the long run?
Bookie greed has absolutely killed the game.     Too much racing - majority of which is impossible-to-work-out dross.
Races graded so tightly that winner finding has become nigh on impossible. Massive (and deliberate) increase in graded 2 bend “bingo” races where trouble at the 1st bend is almost the norm. Yet they still expect punters to keep pouring their money into something they can’t generally win on.

How and why the big bookies were allowed to gain so much control of the sport to the extent that it now almost depends on them perplexes, angers and saddens me...

Oh, by the way - Happy New Year!!

Just 17 outright favs winning from the 88 graded races run so far today! I wonder why Bookies are keen to put on as much of this type of racing as they possibly can!

Do punters only back favourites?

Not bothering much tonight yet everytime I switch to the channel it's one of those 2 bend things on. Only a matter of time before they become the standard distance with anything over 460 metre qualifying as a marathon. The older I get the less I bother with this game.

4 Races every 10 minutes this morning! I do hope that the bookies have put on some virtual stuff fo fill those 20 second gaps where there’s nothing to bet on!
