I take it you are referring to the commentators who prattle on with their 'analysis' immediately

following the race as a result of which it takes 5 minutes to find out what was 2nd and 3rd. On many

occasions you can hear the course announcer in the background giving the result but the commentators

are talking over it.

I thought he may be referring to those Course Announcers ( It is the JUDGE, actually, who Announces the Result ) - who, after a Close PHOTO-FINISH say ...

'Here is the Result of The - Shop online at Abracadabra for all your Christmas presents for Family, Relatives and Friends this Festive Season, Novice Stakes, Restricted to Bands B and C, for horses that have not won a race in 2023"

Winner about 2.3 in the photo drifting to 3.0.
Report onlooker December 8, 2023 8:34 PM GMT
Opened up around 2.4ish - The Eventual Winner ... 1.6ish The Runner-up

Then went practically  2.0 (Evens each of 2) for some while - by Photo Betting standards

Then the Runner-up went down fairly quickly - 1.8 > 1.6 > 1.44   - With quite a Lump looking to get on a around 1.48.

Then the Result called .... Sooner than you would have expected.

I laid the winner to small stakes at 2.24 as soon as the photo betting opened, but then laid the second to even smaller stakes at 1.45 when the market decided that it had put its head down in time.

Wasn't 100% convinced either way, hence the small stakes. At least I laid the shortest prices.

Well the point is everybody is guessing what the Donny was actually referring to.

whats your method for photo betting screaming? opinion live or ewe stopping rtv on line?
Report screaming from beneaththewaves December 8, 2023 9:05 PM GMT
Stopping on line, always.

The problem is identifying the line at Dundalk.

It's always obvious where the line is when you know the result. I wouldn't go beating yourself up over missing an opportunity there.

im normally **** hot at dundalk...long as i can stop it **** on..good guide is mirror down to middle of screen..normally bout a 30 degree angle.

RTV showed the following still 10 secs before BF opened the photo betting. It's a good neck ahead of the line imo. Probably what drove the prices.

I was, in fact, referring to the 1202 at Clonmel on Thursday when the RacingTV pictures went down and they went back to Don whathisname after the race ....who prattled on fpor 60 seconds or so WITHOUT just giving the result! 1st, 2nd, 3rd then do your lame analysis. It was at least 90 seconds before we heard the favourite was unplaced. It gets on my ....
