Imo should be the first choice line up the producers should anchor the show with... Presenting the programme Berresford shines as a laid back, loveable and enthusiastic person who gets through the programme with his own unconventional style. Daryll Williams just comes across as a dull, boring, one dimensional presenter who thinks he is a judge when in fact he is utterly clueless about the game and also a dull as both dishwater/ditchwater, very patronising man as well. Julie Collier should get the gig when Berresford is unavailable.
Paul Lawrence is head and shoulders above any other guest that has been on the couch imo, insightful and likeable pl should be first choice on the list for the sofa. Regular back-up's of Jonathon Hobbs and Phil Donaldson should complete the team.
Shame Roger Chapman is never sighted nowadays either, good presenters/pundits are few and far between.

PL is diff speed, traps, early pace to bend, good middle and stays trip well. Very informative too ie what you see is what you get, reads the profile/make up of a race very well. Will you have my babies ?

Paul lawrence you have gotta be kidding me dean?!

Spends the entire show name dropping,then repeats what they have said as his own work,paul lawrence has NEVER once said a thing about a race/dog/track/trainer etc etc etc,that i didnt know or made me stop and think about what he said.

What paul lawrence does is state the absolute obvious but has a way of making ppl who listen think that its his own original and interesting thought when truth be told,even when it comes to the blatantly obvious, hes STILL repeating what someone who does know the game has told him,in short hes a bluffer/chancer imo.

Hmm PS surprised your so -ve on PL, I think he's really good particularly at Brough park, ok I'll acknowledge he does seem to have contacts at some of the tracks. But he does admitt this on the show

But I mean he leaves numpties like JK, Hobsie and errol stuck in the fooking traps. Though someone who picks loads of winners constantly would never be on the show regularly as its run by the bookies. Now and again is OK as creats an impression that joe public can win. Take ATR for example practically every fooking winner is well backed, its all about creating an impression that you can win at gambling, whereas in reality 95% people lose at gambling.

pat you have pl on your anti list but i find that strange... we all have our own ways of getting it out the game, i use my own 2 eyes and dont listen to hardly a soul, if pl gets his card marked and then uses that on the show whats wrong with that... anybody being on the show has to talk hot air at somepoint during the 3 and a half hours, its the ones that you dont notice doing that are the best to have on there... mad dog man you are right irish trainer son was different gear esp for his age when he was on, but take it he based in ireland and wont get many apperances due to that

Loved the bolleaux Big Mac came out with on the morning line or Barry's bismark stint, saint and greavsie (remember them ?) , Dunphy still about over here, hope Neville and Carragcher start rucking on sky Laugh there is something to be said about the entertainment of watching one person take a view and another oppose it but not in a Question Time way (too nice) Laugh.

In my opinion the best line up would be; Jason as the front man hosting the show, Gary Wiltshire as the bookies man with a understanding of how they think and a guest from the past on 854 and 425 a Malcolm Francis who knew all the dogs, about promotion of the sport ( although a bit tiring when he went on about Coventry).Also he should of known alot about flapping, he went enough before he went to Coventry. That line up  would be fun,contraversial,knowledgable and good viewing.
Report safari guide August 20, 2013 9:05 AM BST
Unfortunately Budapest it would alienate all new viewers and those whose experiences do not include flapping. The good stories are those which involve some form of skulduggery which although entertaining are not really displaying the message that betting is straight which is a prerequisite for a channel sponsored by bookmakers encouraging betting.

Paul Lawrence is a terrific guest whose commentaries are full of passion and comic quips. I remember the race he commentated on a while back with a greyhound he had napped defending a slender lead with PL crying from the third bend “he’s coming but she’s better than him, his still coming but she knows she’s better than him” his voice was filled with equal amounts of joy and trepidation and when he called his nap over the line by a head victory it was a fantastic moment.

what I think is good about p l is , me and several others gave him a bit of stick for constantly defending his choices after the race, but tbf he has worked on that weakness and now holds his hands up more often when he gets it wrong.
