Ed never stops talking, number of times you hear the result of the photo and he's still jabbering away.

Also keeps interrupting he others when they are trying to speak.

Let's have less of these presenters anyway.

Is Chamberlin gone too? He's the irritant of the highest degree; little knowledge of horse racing; repeatedly fawning racing entities. A surplus to requirement not conducive to horse racing.

I agree but the ITV viewing figures (perhaps says a lot about the audience and how ITV focus on that audience) mean he's here to stay..

i've not watched ITV racing for couple of years, thank god for betting site streams and RTV, but for the non-subscription, non punters, it fills a void (I guess! interesting to see how the figures go when furlough over)

Who's that Irish geezer? He gave a "fancied" tip and the horse was beaten. He later gave another (maybe two) but I was not watching to see if he was successful or not. Who was that Irish bloke?

I hope he gave at least a winner; Ed called him a "top man" to come on TV.
Report impossible123 January 2, 2021 3:36 PM GMT
I think when horse racing is on terrestrial tv bookies must not be sponsors. Look at the ridiculous names of races today at Sandown Park sponsored by Unibet? ITV Racing ought to be shameful for bringing horse racing into disrepute.

What a bunch of moaners, give ITV a break, they have given us plenty of racing this festive period and lets face it there is not much to look forward at the moment. They stand there for 2 hours in the freezing cold but still present in an enthusiastic fashion. If you don't like it switch over to BBC, oh I forgot they can`t be bothered with racing, well go to the bookies then but its probably shut.
Be thankful to ITV racing or would you rather no racing on terrestrial TV at all ?
Report impossible123 January 3, 2021 10:46 AM GMT
The ITV personnel did not do it for nothing. They're paid much more than others in the field, and average joe or harriet; their transmission was about 7 secs slower.

I'd the tv on, but watched and listened to commentary and analysis immediately post the race  here (or RYV); Chamberlin, McCoy and Fitzgerald, pundits?

Just have Olly and/or Cumani and Walsh plus Plunkett and/or Grassick (Ireland). We do not need Chamberlin, McCoy, Fitzgerald and Thornton (what was he on for?); Chapman and Harvey. These would be my lot. There's no need for any more gravy trainers.

RothmanMike so what point am I missing ? I'm just sticking up for ITV racing that's all, I love racing and I'm glad I have some to watch on tv. So you don`t like members of the team but what person likes everyone ? Perhaps you should have a go at presenting as you know everything and will obviously do a better job and be more interesting to listen to.
