They have obviously flown Rishi PErsad and Angus Mcnae out to Dubai to analyse each race in the paddock ffs. Who is paying for these jollys? We are. This is ridiculous and pointless.

I agree, this is a scandalous waste of our money.

I have therefore complained to RUK about this today via email (customerservices@racinguk. com)  and they have eventually agreed to reduce my subscription down to £10 per month for the next 4 months until the desert rubbish has finished.

I suggest others might do the same if you feel as strongly as I did.

they are quite happy to fly a team out to Dubai for a one day fixture and yet Kempton on a Wednesday night, nobody at the track and they talk s*ite until the horses are behind the stalls...

Totally agree Overseas, nothing more than a massive jolly for the participants and an absolute disgrace that subscribers are shelling out for it.
Report screaming from beneaththewaves January 5, 2017 4:12 PM GMT
The irony is that McNae and Persad have been flown all that way on a jolly, yet have ended up looking as though they're actually sitting in a studio in front of a green screen.
Report sparrow January 5, 2017 4:17 PM GMT
Overseas spot on. They obviously think Kempton evenings are not glamourous enough for them.
About time they considered what their customers actually want.

they seem to forget that it is racing UK

not racing dubai
not racing hong kong
not racing france
not racing USA

forget all the fkin sh1te listed above and concentrate on covering UK racing to a higher standard than what is currently being served up

Dear Sirs

I really must congratulate you on your stewardship of the monies received via subscription to RUK. You must be awash with cash to be able to send Angus Mcnae and Rishi Persad to Dubai to analyse each race in the paddock. This could so easily have  been done in the studio but you obviously felt that a couple of the loyal staff could do with a bit of free sunshine on the subscribers ticket.

Due to your excellent management of funds obviously I should not expect any further increase in fees for at least the next 3 years.

Yours admiringly.

I think you will find that the coverage will have been sponsored by those trying to promote Dubai
Report bilbobaggins January 5, 2017 4:57 PM GMT
Without proof of that I will assume it's RUK paying the bill ad.

What about Tom Stanley, who's paying him to ask questions like:

Jim, did you know how far clear you were?

I agree about Nevo though, gutted he's not bringing us those all important betting moves from the betting ring!

I'm getting fed up with the BBC. They're sending fook knows how many actors to the Caribbean each year, to film Murder In Paradise!

Dear Senor Baggins,

Thank you for your very dignified paean extolling the virtues of winter sunshine. We concur wholeheartedly and would recommend swapping your boxers for a nice, skintight set of speedo swimming trunks. We also recommend opening the curtains in your living room occasionally as your neighbours have been alerting Neighbourhood Watch convinced that your home is inhabited by the nocturnal badger.

We do marvel at the ownership that our viewers assume when paying the paltry annual subscription and we assure you that, as painful as your absence might be, your loss of custom would not be unduly burdensome.

We have made a voluntary donation to the Salvation Army on your behalf.

Yours in sport,

Ivor Knutt Hunt CBE

Pity Simon Mapletoft works for the wrong channel, bet he would love to be there, always gets the freezing gigs at Wolves and Suvvell, top man Simon, does a good job in the harshest conditions of the lot usually.

Mapletoft must get that tan from somewhere - the floodlights at Wolverhampton perhaps? When he's out on the track at Southwell he's camouflaged against the sand.

Surely Nevison could run the raffle for the car or whatever is their equivalent of having a bet.  A little bit of fun with Bodugi wouldn't go amiss either!
