Jumps boring enough as it is, they need some sort of solution to ommiting obstacles.

Best example I can give youve backed Native River to win the Gold Cup at 6/1, if someone ses to you, you can have 13/2 but we are missing out 10 fences would you accept?

Completely changes the race.

PS. They must know where the sun sets Wink

Your last post is the significant one. Does it make sense to persist with holding chases at the time when they know from years of experience that the sun will be in the same place? Either hold the chases earlier in the day or start the whole card earlier. I have noticed that quite a few meetings are running from 1.00 to 3.30 or 3.40 recently when only 6 races. Is that partly to avoid this problem? Could some fences be resited at courses where this happens frequently?
