    A mixture of gallops, trots and head to head sport would get me interested.

    Terrible Tab again.

    It must really annoy the Tab that there is SI racing. Always being cut off for a dog race in Australia or NZ or an Auckland area galloping race.

    Standing Starts.

    There are quite a few false starts with mobiles eljay. I think many are caused by the mobile going too fast before horses have settled into their stride properly. I may be wrong however.

    Tote Place Divs.

    I think you had better check the dividends along the bottom of the screen and you will see they are the FF divies. That is why I made my initial post.

    Tote Place Divs.

    Blind Squirrel, your rather condescending reply remains "blind" to the main fact of my posts is that unless you have a computer you do not know what the place dividends are. To One more lap's post there is a hell of a lot of dividend reductions half way through a race well after the 7 second tv delay from when betting is closed. When betting is closed then it should be closed. You would of course say the TAB wouldn't be up to anything, or would they?

    ….. and how many more like you have had enough? Going by turnover I think a lot of punters are shifting to sports betting.

    On further reflection it appears that as the TAB's profit is bigger on the FF bets ( I think I am right) they are trying to make everyone back that way rather than on the tote. This way they can control the market and keep odds ridiculously low. As I said above it will drive place betters away. Sure it is a problem only if you do not have a computer, but there are still a lot of older customers out there who deserve a fair go for in many cases their lifelong support of the industry.

    It appears that the dividends on the graphics on the left hand side of the screen and also along the bottom are FF dividends with the win tote dividend only showing on the left. Races today so far have not been involved in pay back or place paying to 4th so therefore if you have tv only you do not know what the tote place dividends are. Obviously the TAB do not want betting for a place on the tote which are often better than the miserable FF ones. Just another way to drive customers away. This is happening today with the dogs, gallops and trots.

    Cup Day Fields

    You are right CosmicBlackie the fields have been getting less and less attractive over the last 10 years or so. I guess smaller foal crops and the fact that many horses showing early ability are sold overseas is having a detrimental effect on Cup Day cards. Oh for the days when every race had brilliant fields on Cup Day and most of Show Day. Good luck to all though.

    NZ Cup

    Boss, I am not sure how it worked but the Cup used to be run on a different Tuesday to the MC, but did clash from time to time until changed to the second Tuesday in November. Someone else may know exactly how it worked.
