    Didn't it used to be on both many years ago? I'm sure I used to flick between the 2 as a kid thinking "why the fuck is this taking up 2 channels?".

    All racing will be on C4 next year I think. Their coverage is great, so not really worried

    Aye, it's very decent. Usually the staple of my Saturday afternoon along with Final Score. Probably be less countdown clock hyperbole nonsense, too.

    There were a fair few down when they all came up to 21 and were forced to go around. Unfortunately, it will always happen unless they change some of the fences.

    Thankfully an e/w on seabass recouped my other losses. We were seriously hoping shakalaka would at least place, but sadly not.

    The other 3 we had backed all fell early on.

    Same, glad to win money back, I honestly thought Shakalakahislop just nicked 4th, but I saw the similar colours and presumed it was that horse.

    Was just reading that both horses were put down because of fractured legs. Can't you fix that on horses? I appreciate they wouldn't be able to race again, but it seems strange that you have to kill them because of it.

    Nah, once their legs are fucked, that's it for them.

    They're big old beasts. I guess there is no way to keep them off their feet to allow it repair

    I think to be honest they really need to cut down on entrants. Half the back field are also-rans with zero chance of making any impact and it just makes the first 3 or 4 jumps a clusterfuck until a few inevitably drop and the numbers thin out. It's nothing short of a stampede over the first few fences.

    They should fucking ban it. Really. Either that or shoot the jockeys who's horse die as well just to be fair.

    Only if we can bet on how many bullets it takes to kill them.

    I appreciate horses, and riding them, and riding them fast, but fuck this.

    Who are we on today then? Of the faves, Colbert Station looks good. Need to buy a paper to have a proper gander.

    If a mod could remove the date from the title, that would be grand....
