Do you currently scrape the non runner information page from the BHA site?

If not, and I knocked one together (I will be doing this regardless). Would you be interested in swapping this for the going scrape? I still haven't done one. Also was going to do one to scrape historical GS readings from TT site. Can't find enough hours in the day.

I will take a look at the code and see if you'd be able to adapt it muqbil. In the meantime what is GS (I take it TT is turftrax)?

Going Stick.

I was going to marry up the readings with past going descriptions, obviously frought with all kinds of problems as the readings are taken early morning and weather changes etc. Also I think there has been a significant learning curve with the gs and it's use around the country.

Muqbil - I have a script for the going reports - email me ( if you're interested. It's very simple, it doesn't try to interpret the reports at all, it merely stores all updates in a file for other programs to process.

It is still in operation Feck.

Will do Mr Magoo.

At times like this the general betting forum can be the greatest place on bf.
