Mark Johnson is the only one I take notice of when betting in-running. I ignore all the rest.

People can slag Scahill all they like, and he is doing it a long time, but at least he does a commentary on what he sees in the race(he does miss fallers to be fair) unlike all his UK counterparts who's commentaries rely solely on the betting and concentrating on the 'favourite'.

Goode would have been in the bottom 3 but surely retired about 2 years ago. Chapman is also dreadful but he's been "retired" hasn't he ?

If you have backed the winner they all sound great. However if you're doing your balls they all sound the most annoying people on earth.

Dont quite get this follow.ing for David Fitzgerald yet,may in time become one of the best as he is highly rated by his employers, still new at it and for me seems to over pronounce his words so he has time,also used to like John Hanmer, always used to call the fences on the way down to Bechers in the National, didnt do a lot of commentating so wasnt the best but his voice made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up

question for catt detractors

are his comms really that bad or is it his overall persona that people are putting him bottom 3 ?

i don't personally think they are worse than some of the others in this list, i can rem a couple of mistakes he's made but does that really drop him below chappers etc?

Clattermoles commentaries are awful, often calls distances that are miles out.

How he gets Cheltenham is beyond me.

Poor result for Irish Commentators - Peader Flanagan doesnt even get a - vote and only two of the five get + figures. Is it the case that Irish Jocks are best but UK commentators are best?
Always thought irish had the gift of teh gab!

Looks like I'm a bit of a sheep, and a favourite backer;

1.Richard Hoiles
2.Simon Holt
3.Dead heat with quite a few in contention.

Dead-beats;

Dave Smith...I know he's finished now but I STILL can't stand him!
Derek Thompson...I don't think there's anything else I can insult him with Cry
Matt Chapman...excellent value as a presenter, but the worst commentator of ALL time!
