let's hope he stays in france, when the uk racing come back.

It amazes me. He has messed big time before yet he seems to have exclusive rights to all of the commentaries.
Report Mat22 May 17, 2020 6:20 PM BST
Very Often He slags off the jolly! ie its pulling hard when in fact the Horse is cruising.
Then when it wins his tone completely changes. And even then he still sounds like he has laid it.
Spoils the commentary on the good Group races. Hope he retires!

Awful commentator, a really horrible harsh accent. Can't believe that of all the people commentating on the only racing on it is him, nightmare, usually watch with the sound off when it's him.

In danger of putting people off racing for life with his constant bored for first 90%, screech for the last 10% modus operandi

" and at the bushes.......Frankel is 15 lengths clear " .  Bartlett gave one of the greatest one liners ever. Still gives me goose bumps listening to this .

Did he get any comm gigs during the night?

I watched a lot of old YouTube commentaries recently and sir Peter made a hell of a lot of mistakes, but his dulcet tones allowed him to get away with it. It surprised me how often he made mistakes.

In the 1990 Arkle he mixed up another coral, with Waterloo boy, Waterloo boy didn't even run in the race in 1990.

agree there g hall, ive posted loads of old you tube races recently and the mistakes sir peter does are terrible, but like you say his voice, tone everything about him oozed class.id do anything to get him back commentating, to me he was horse racing , and I miss him on tv terribly.

and I know im in the minority here but I thought that goode was excellent, until he started his "oath", since then they all try and be clever
Report sparrow May 18, 2020 1:35 PM BST
I always liked Jim McGrath in his earlier days.
Report G Hall May 18, 2020 1:38 PM BST
Agreed about goode and McGrath, I thought goode was excellent up until that point as well, "Oath" I couldn't believe what I was hearing really diminished that years derby for me

It would've helped if he had mentioned the fact that she was in the finish!

amazing all the slagging for bartie ...he is probably not even in france .I really appreciate his commentaries
Report the dealer May 18, 2020 7:31 PM BST
they are easy targets, they make a mistake they are jumped on. they will never please everyone with their commentating styles. I cant see the big deal in all honesty, none affect my enjoyment of racing, however bad a call may be.
Report luckyone May 18, 2020 7:33 PM BST
He was in a studio in France watching on tv doing up to four meetings a day , i agree a bit harsh
Report elisjohn May 18, 2020 7:34 PM BST
i loved this commentator

Bartlett is top of the toff commentators, that is why he is selected for the big meetings.  A top ten of toffs would be interesting, I would add Julian Wilson and Raleigh Gilbert.
