it won't

wait and see what happens when the horse racing schedule gets busier and the lighter nights come

I wouldn't bet long odds there is a race that goes off at some point this year with £0 matched
Report garryc January 6, 2018 6:06 PM GMT
some of the strong meetings like hove and newcastle have had a couple of grand max but depends on the off time of a race,if its straight after another race you will struggle to get matched,you can dig something out that you fancy and wait to bet it and now with all the racing you cant get anything decent on,its dementing me
Report Ravage Again January 6, 2018 6:16 PM GMT
Yer that's one think I never considered that no evening horse racing at the moment

I mainly do open races

So for me it's just going to the number run as getting matched should be ok

For me the loss is Newcastle sat night and Henlow on Sunday

Let's hope the henlow Sunday afternoon meeting ok getting matched on here

Report wondersobright January 6, 2018 6:20 PM GMT
summer evenings when there are 2 or 3 horse racing cards and back then just 2 BAGS cards, sometimes 1-2k matched at best
try a horse race 7.30, a dog race 7.31, a dog race 7.32 etc it will be buttons being matched

Most opens seem to get £20 k matched which usually means the prices are ok

The screen size is probably 2 inch by say 5 inch and it's in high definition and the picture quality is great but it's too small

If I click on full screen it goes full screen on the monitor buts it quite grainy and loses picture quality

My PC does not have a graphic es card

Any way of choosing a specific picture size so it's say 9 by 4 inch still and in good quality definition

Obviously still not enough racing for the bookies. Even though there are currently almost 4 dog races every 10 minutes they still squeeze in Virtual Racing. There is just no let up in the saturation of dross they supply and absolutely no limit to their greed..

It could be they have been forewarned of the impending FOBT restrictions and need some other fast moving method of taking all that drug money that is currently laundered through the machines. For the right faces £100.00 bets on returned favourites every few minutes will make up for any barrier across the current revenue streams. For other faces, they of course will still be restricted to discretion.

Luvving all this racing

With loads of races can be selective

Also with all these meeting in a short period of time the grader makes a lot more ricks

And then you can watch on rptv or betting shop one

The unfortunate thing about this scenario is that greyhound gamblers are now presented with far more opportunities to do their nuts. Where discipline might have had a chance once every seven minutes it is now under pressure every four minutes. Which is of course less time to realise "when the fun stops" and all because the government fears fobt cherry hunters are a social sufferance.

Thanks Ravage - I’m not trying to ‘get at’ anything really. It just seems odd, to me anyway, that of the 900+ races run on a Saturday in Britain since the start of the year not one has been an open.  As you say, Crayford regularly put on Opens on a Saturday, I thought Newcastle used to run a few, and I thought that the law of averages would have seen a few more dotted about.
I just wondered if there had been a change of strategy to run them midweek to encourage more visitors/increase betting or whether it’s just a coincidence and, as you say, there aren’t normally any in the programme at this time of year..
