14 races and not a single six or eight bend race in sight..Thought for a moment it was yet another BAGS card! Anyone remember when Final Nights used to have variety?

Apologies - I realise that the Select Stakes is not actually a Final, but Gala nights like this used to offer something for everyone didn’t they?

The quality if most of the other opens are totally shocking

Some of the maiden races are more like a2 or a3 graded races races

It's an awful card

Far too many poor quality opens on now as tracks are short of runners for graded races and just till them up with maiden opens and poor quality ones

Losing the sky meetings afraid was a great pity and has spoilt the quality of good open race nights now

Make no mistake the 2 posters are 100% correct a truely dreadful meeting including select itself. I mean no disrespect to owners n trainers competing but its truely awful.

Its just how things are from here on unless the sport some how changes direction away from the abyss.The pool of dogs is shrinking so there will obviously be less good ones about .Its common sense really. When i started doing the Hove videos about 10yrs ago you needed a sub 29.80 dog to even get competitive on a thursday.Now anything sub 30.00 will be thereabouts.Its just a fact of life and it will only get worse.

Boomtown frankel 6@
Drawn well tonight , got no run early last week
Dog inside him got no early likes rails
Nothing on outside , just got break smart hold 6
6/1 too big

Droopys zephyr 13-8

Again the draw red off middle to wide
Five rails
3 wide
James boy nice dog but he’s got some clearing to do from 4 last week
6 runs like last week can’t see him getting beat with the draw

Sporting dave 9/2 big runner if drawn red he be 5/2 poke imo
Know your fate early as he’s got to clear Freddie

One other waiting for price on

Got 4/1 Reg but gone in again at 18/5 boost to make it more interesting. Can lead and shouldn't be caught

Couple of doubles, over 5/1 Fawn Tango/Newlawn Adam and 6.6/1 Droopys Zephyr/Malt Paddy

Think 8/11 plenty short enough Newinn Missile with Tango's form at Sheffield on a par with him and much more attractive at 9/4

Adam clearly has the beating of Fridays Zeus, who i see and the only real rival really. Some education with a bit of alliteration for you there! LaughWink

Cocking Private a deaf one with his assessment of Zephyr! Cool

Malt holds good claims and ought to go close


5.2/1 match bets treble. Zeus over Whiteys, Reg over Innocent and Zephyr over James


Bull Run Button should make short work of her rivals but beyond my pocket but would think about laying Geelo Zip at as short as 2/5

No doubt the presenters and guests will not share our views on the quality and will be going to great lengths to tell us all what a cracking card it is, and how lucky we all are to have such a great night’s racing to look forward to and get our teeth stuck into..........Belgium v Spain it is then!

1.01 landed - Tanya opens up with “What a great card we’ve got tonight, I can’t wait” quickly followed by Julie saying that “the Select Stakes is supported by a fantastic card” RPGTV propaganda at it’s best!  Time to switch over....but good luck to anyone tempted to have a dabble..

Select stakes open night minus Wallis,Hutton.McNair,Harrison. The game is on its knees and it looks like we have all given up.Mark wallis was interviewed a while ago and said he was scaling down on one off opens,why travel when the home tracks make it worthwhile to stay at home.

Not too sure about that at Towcester

The prize money is shocking

At one time the Select Stakes was among the most prestigious races on the calendar and when you look at this card you realise how bad things have got. As the OP has said not one race over more than 4 bends just about sums it all up for me.

Case Freddie when lame around winning line first time

Look at his tail and back legs

He then tried to get round the first bend but could not cos he was feeling something

Which caused him to run off and take the other dogs off

T5 looked to get carried off hope it's ok
