Derek Thompson in a category all of his own, way way way below the others, who do at least try to commentate, and don't make a total f**king farcical joke of the job.

Matt Chapman - though I think he's good in the booth, and I respect him for trying.

Top 3

Gerry Hanlon  - enthusiastic, accurate and loud (but not in a 'phoney' kinda of way, seems to get a bit carried away and gives some of those commentaries everything he's got!).

John Hunt - has the voice for it, along with the delivery.

Martin Harris - cool, accurate and crystal clear.

Holt
Pugh
Harris

Bottom:

Scahill - Miles past his sell by date, makes zero comments about jumping errors, pace etc, and basically churns out the same commentary every time with different horse names.

Cattermole - He's just sh!t. Listening to him on the radio you get no sense at all of how the race is going etc.

Tony O'Hehir - In fairness to the man he sounds ill doing his commentaries, but hearing him gasp for breath between sentences isn't exactly easy to listen to. Chuck in the fact he has no passion and you have an all round dull commentator.

Generally, they are a darned sight better than they were 30 years ago.  The 1983 Triumph Hurdle on youtube is a classic for ordinary racecourse commentary.

Simon Holt is good

But it's 99% having live pictures

Mind you, used to love it, years ago on here, In Running, when commentators like Thompson
got unnecessarily excited about a horse, mid-race, and the price dropped a few points

Doesn't happen so much now.
