Far more enjoyable than channel 4's version. This seems more about the racing and less about fawning over guests.

Really disappointed with the content today, I don't think that we really needed to dwell on the chances of Thistlecrack and co, it would have been nice to have had a little help with the big hcps where maybe there is some value. The feature on Southfield Royale and the Sky Bet Chase was pathetic, did anybody actually tell us what they fancied and more importantly why? All I got was that Southfield Royale might need the run, but there again, maybe he wont.

Cheltenham fever perhaps? It will be the same with the Festival previews in a month or so: 90 per cent of the time is spent discussing the championship races where every punter and his granny knows most of the contenders and all of the odds-on ante-post jollies.

Any show with Luke Harvey as a senior analyst can't be taken seriously.

ITV's racing's target audience is for passive viewers and its dumbing down is excruciating, unwatchable in my view.

Terrestrial channels have to target a wider audience but what's this show about?

No guests or analysts to ask serious questions or any worthwhile features. I don't think it wold work but no attempt at form analysis or even a look at the markets.

There probably isn't any harm in LH but he's the class clown.

I didn't think it was possible but it has deteriorated from the ML format
