ed chamberlain and richard hoiles were excellent,the rest poor.

too much coverage of overhead shots of the races, do not want to listen to fitzy and luke comments during the race.
will we get this on the grand national and flat races.?

Some decent looking women though.  The weathergirl and the vet in particular.

last   ......... Racing program  ever if it doesnt do better ........interest is waning .. for racing  wonder why .. ? ..main meeting of year not all races . ?PEOPLE TAKE DAYS OFF AS HOLIDAYS ??
betting needs regulated better .. far too many options now as new layers pop up every day ..  RATTLING ALONG IS VERY FAIR    work rider . AVID SUPPORTER .. AT ONE TIME .. seldom put it on now ,,  SAME STUFF different day .. NEW FACES .. did not watch it at all all week sums up fed up of ADVERTS  etc , FEAR TOO MUCH OF THE GAME IN ONLY A FEW HANDS ??.. ...........ACROSS THE BOARD .. ,............ROLL ON AINTREE  .. MUCH BETTER PROPOSITION ..   4 Days killed off CHELTS  .. 2 x 3 dAY MEETS  6 MONTHS APART .. MARCH AND SEPTEMBER ..    Choice and better  .. QUALITY PLEASE ..  Trainers maximum 2 horse per race .. stuff the declarations  as it stands .. only two choices not ......four ??

Unfortunately Cheltenham starts  many months before, with the likes of Chapman ramping it up,and proclaiming every novice race winner is potentially the winner of this and that race at the festival.
In consequence, I for one, am sick of it before the thing starts,and because of all the hype anti-climax surely follows.
Glad it's all over and things return to a little normality.

for the racing fan fitzy,s in race comments regarding augusta kate were laughable to any of the called new racing viewers who itv are supposed to represent ,any of them who,d backed augusta must have been dumfounded as it fell out the back of the screen like a 100 to 1 shot,

Too many people were involved, they could have put on a good show with half the number.  Fitzgerald definitely has to be terminated and Plunkett is an embarrassment.

as previous never watched the program and fed up watching adverts all day long . 80 per cent bookies and cars .. use both every day . one guzzles up petrol the other hard earned .. ??  breath of fresh air watching RUGBY ON BBC  ,.. would not fancy telling a rugby player he canny have a wager on the GAME ,,,
Report DAN1974 March 18, 2017 3:14 PM GMT
the coverage was ok, but why dont they show all the races? that really baffles me, its not as if they havent got enough channels to put it on.
Report Shrewd_dude March 18, 2017 3:33 PM GMT
They don't show all the races because only Racing Uk have rights to last 2 races.


It is bizarre to sign a deal though that doesn't include all the races on the largest 4 days audience wise outside of the National though.

Mindnumbing, stultifying, massfoddery, dull, execrable, fatuous pap. What did I miss? To be fair; when you employ programme planners who know beggar all about racing, can you expect a serious, thought provoking, interesting, well-informed enjoyable product? Well, clearly not.

can you get anything more ridiculous than chamberlin calling mcoy
sir anthony one minute and AP the next ,whilst at the same time fitzy calls him champ

It's the replays that I can't stand with the shouting home of the winners. I'm sure they turn the sound up.

That's fine, I usually turn the sound off at that point.

All that shouting over a horse race.

In running comments a bad idea a very bad idea.

Getting Luke and Fitzy to do them, well that makes it a slam dunk of a bad idea.

As an Irish man , I'd like to apologise for the clown that is workrider. An embarrassment to our nation,basically  a grade A dumbo .
Only yesterday he was complaining about the on course bookies in Wexford with their prices , whilst quoting the Betfair SP as his example.

By definition most of the time the winning jockey is on the best horse in the race and they are just trying not to make a mess of it. The way they fawn over the top jockeys is nauseating. Brough Scott spouting garbage about the best jockeyship ever seen at Cheltenham just summed it up for me. Enjoyed the rest of the coverage though.
Report Dr Crippen March 18, 2017 6:47 PM GMT
The other day the camera caught Scott from the side showing his elderly crouch and profile.
I thought he'd make a good Count Dracula if he were a bit taller.

Don't worry Brough we all like you, you're doing a grand job.


Keep drinking the blood.
