Yes,it is my intention to restrict my visits to Monday-Thursday for the foreseeable future.
Am going to Hamilton next Sunday however,so fingers crossed.
I think the thing to do is to check if there is any Pop Music afterwards.

the quality of the racing is rubbish , you cant see a thing unless you watch from the walls outside . booze prices are high, comfort is low  . its a day nightclub for pretend cheshire housewives and for pretend scouse footballers .

Said years ago I would never go again. Worst day out any real racegoer can buy. This lot don't deserve to run what was a pretty course with a long history. Shameful commercialised organisation. Most of the crowd only interested in booze, the authorities only interested in profit and the staff only interested in jobsworthiness . If thats a word.

Commentator constantly going on about chester bet prices before race set off. He said one horse was 100/1 on chester bet but as it was only 50/1 in ring no punters would be able to get the 100/ because chester bet pays sp less 10%.
Thats very misleading and they should be had up under trade descriptions.

I've got a few courses in my bucket list of ones I've never been to, Cartmel and York being at the top but after reading about the place from many of you on here Chester will never be on that list.

You should definitely go to York,slippy,in the top 3 in the uk in my view.shouldn’t fuss about cartmel viewing very limited.as for Chester,the may meeting used to be one of my favs but a combination of the idiot clientele & greedy management make it a no no.

on racedays do chester employ stewards to stop people gathering around the walls to view
Report The Dragon September 14, 2021 4:19 PM BST
dont think they would be the slightest bit interested brians,

Its packed out every time it opens its gates, never seen so much security guards around a racecourse.

They have set their stall out to attract the party and booze goers.

Cant see it changing any time soon.

Bangor on Deee,Haydock and Uttoxeter will be my future local visits to the races

Good link Sparrow. I went to Castle Irwell when I was 8 in about 1958. As can be seen on the film the strangest thing to me then was that the jockey number boards obscured the finish from the grandstand !
Report brians September 14, 2021 11:40 PM BST
The race in the video was won by Regret, at 66/1 with a fifteen year okd jockey , Jimmy Walker. He never really made it and left tacing in 1951 aged just 19. He could still be alive , around 86 now.
