I don't know how he gets away with it or gets any comms gigs these days at all

Same old rubbish every single time - off to a level break, let's see what happens - even though three were slowly away

He hopes every race will be close so he can shout PHOTO PHOTO, that's close, we'll leave it to the judge, when the winner is obvious

Ennis not much better either - has to have time at the start to tell us what was "a step slow away" before he can tell us what is leading

And Fitzgerald now becoming even more nauseating than ever and his O'Connor joke earlier today was mind-numbing

Some are good but overall racecourse comms needs an overhaul - it's about the horses and the horserace not some prima donna, look at me, shouty man, egotist

I picture him about 120 yards diagonally away from the finish line, it helps me process it.

He stuck his neck out there in the last, but then panicked a bit Laugh

It was a bit like some numpty thinking of a great chat up line for days and when he says it to the girl it goes down like a lead balloon.

Thommo's style of commentary is amazing, every other commentator in the world has the primary objective of identifying the winner for the audience. Thommo's main aim is the opposite, to pretend that we don't know the winner if at all possible.
