Is this event the worst Saturday of racing of the whole calendar year?

Every Saturday before and after Cheltenham Festival is worse Saturday of the whole calendar year, due to the horses that ran and the one's that didn't make it and might make it next year or two years later...........................................

Don't know - but it is one meeting out of a few thousand.
But I'm afraid the Betfair Forum may collapse in on itself, without the annual Shergar Cup-moaning-thread(s).

Spooky that the Betfair Forum and The Shergar Cup have been going about the same length of time.
Interesting odds-market on which will bite the dust first?

Be mass Excitement in the Morning Line studio Regarding the Cup

3 or 4 hours of Tallying up points in the Afternoon , that no one could give a fook about

Racing does NOT- and never has - lend itself to 'Jockey Challenges' - and -  worse still, 'TEAM' Events

NEVER has - NEVER will ... No matter how they 'dress it up' - be it the Shergar Cup - or the newer ridiculous 'Racing League'.

^ A Jockey cannot suddenly decide  before the Last ace ...

I/We need MAXIMUM Points from this Final race ... so - I need to 'ride the ballcocks off this one'

In that case ... WHY has he/she Not - 'ridden the ballcocks off'-  all his/her previous rides, then? - in order to 'bank up the Points'.

The horse is going to run the SAME Race in the Final race - as it would Whatever the situation

A Jockey - ANY Jockey - simply cannot suddenly make 5 lengths difference to a horse's performance - if it is ridden competently - whatever the overall state of play.

They cannot- That is an illusion ...or - Delusion.

Which makes the whole concept just a Delusional Dream ... or delusional Disaster - if you are a REALIST.

Totally agree with the above posts,

Its just another cog in the wheel of dumbing down the sport agenda.

I've just been through a race without realizing the horse I was looking to place lay isn't even going to be a runner cos of the team structure allowing only 10 runners. Crazy

I’m not too bothered by it. It seems to have become very fashionable not to like it though.
Report steerforth August 6, 2022 12:33 PM BST
So a majority opinion is less valid because it's just "fashionable".
People are on here moaning because they hold out a vain but futile hope that somebody, somewhere with a say in these matters will realise that this c**p is of no importance or interest to racing fans.
As for the forum/SC market to be the first to be binned, I'd bet big that there will be nowhere to moan long before we see the back of it.
