    Nice to see the Post publishing a few letters expressing the views of the vast majority of punters about the encroachment of all-weather bingo racing.

    Tonight’s meeting at Kempton sees the next step in the BHB-Trilateral Commission master plan for impenetrable races to be staged from morning until late evening at 7 minute intervals in order to milk the pathologicals most efficiently. Races staged at 28 minute intervals.

    Make no mistake, in 18 months time there will be three meetings inbetween the Kempton one if nothing is done.

    The only thing evil needs to triumph is for good men to do nothing. It’s time for everyone to stand up and be counted. Direct action is the way forward as demonstrated by our allies the seagulls, who fought a magnificent rearguard action against the abomination of dirt racing going ahead at Kempton. They know filth when they see it invading their back yard!

    I call on all our Scottish brothers to attend the public inquiry into the sanding over of Mussleburgh. It is your duty to object to this outrage in whatever way you see fit.

    <u>The fightback has started</u>

    You would be forgiven for thinking it was a BAGS meeting.  Maybe they want to create that association?<br>I don’t get it.  28mins between races?  What’s the point?

    Who cares what time the races go off?

    Who cares? Erm, that would be you and your big bookie associates who have requested this! Why? So you can squeeze one final rat-holed fiver out of the arse of a pathological before the shop shuts.

    Enjoy the 14 runner bingo filth, you should certainly have no trouble getting a drink at the bar as, sponsors and bookies aside, I doubt if there will be anyone there.

    One final thing The Sportsman are doing their image no favours sponsoring this piffle – it kinds puts out the message that they support the arse raping of punters.

    RD<br> Surely the point, as Glenn alludes to, is to run races at 7 minute intervals, rather than 10 minutes, which gives them a few extra bites at the cherry. <br> On recent history, the extra meetings will also, no doubt, be framed with the bookies in mind, rather than to promote decent quality racing.

    Yes, I get it in that respect.  But they have floodlighting at Kempton.  They could race until 9.45 if they wanted to.  I am guessing there is some kind of watershed they have to adhere to, so why not start at 6.45?  A lot of evening meets start even earlier than that.

    "Surely the point, as Glenn alludes to, is to run races at 7 minute intervals, rather than 10 minutes"

    I see what you mean now.  More 14 runner max, high profit, meetings squeezed into a three hour period.  Yes, the sceptival would see it that way.  It’s possible that is the incentive.

    TDK  as much as I admire your posts generally  I am a little dissapointed that you react to Glens post as a whinge

    Its a fact

    Bookies amd courses are joining together to make a commercial killing , and why not  good luck to them  but lets recognise tonights meeting for what it is  , is more fodder for betting shop punters

    As for the times , its all about coinciding with shop closure times at 9 30  when the new laws come into force  you can expect a 9  race card from 7 until 11

    Bags has taken a new twist , its called kempton park racing ,the winners will be RHT  and the bookies  , and possibly RUK , the losers , well you have guessed ….its the punters as usual

    regards

    this is a fairly decent card and i (among many others no doubt) are pleased to see the evening racing back.  as for the kempton track, i think it is a welcome addition to the aw tracks we currently have as it is just a little different from the others. as a course kempton has excellent facilities compared to the other 15 or so i have visited and there will be a fair sized crowd enjoying themselves tonight. i’m looking forward to mondays soon where we can go to lingfield, kempton or somewhere else close in the afternoon and then pop along to windsor to the evening meet.

    glenn, apart from the title of your post being distasteful and practically every paragraph in your post being inaccurate diatribe, if you dislike it so much why don’t you just give it up ?  if you really are alike the attitude of your initial post i doubt a single person in racing will miss you, if you’ve ever partaken before, should you not bother again.

    TDK – The card isn’t decent enough to be classed as a premier meeting and thus they have imposed the 14 runner ‘safety’ limits that the bookies requested. Why should any punter want to get involved in races that are rigged at the behest of the bookies to ensure that they lose?

    UN – Plenty of angles to milk tonight – all of them on the footie sadly. I hear that they’re playing tommorow’s games over the traditional 90 mins. Apparently some gangsters asked the FA to have three 30 minute matches instead, to increase the number of underbacked draws and provide more betting opportunities for the pathologicals. Strangely the FA said no!

    SBerry – any relation? :biggrin:

    Nobody likes me – I don’t care.

    I was always taught at school that there were three reactions to developments you don’t like – exit, voice and loyalty. I rather figured that a forum was a place to voice your concerns. Apologies if I’ve got it wrong.

    <br>They could stage six Group 1 races at one hour intervals and some peopke would still whinge.

    If they’d opted to start at 6:50 this evening and stuck to 30 min intervals, what would there be to complain about. Of course the racing is put on to fit in with shop opening times – that’s because racing and betting are financially  tied together, just the same as they are in every other country in the world bar Dubai.

    As for the football analogy, is the London derby being staged at 12:45 tomorrow to suit the fans and players – or is it just possible that it’s a financial arrangement to suit Sky TV.

    He who pays the piper dictates what time he tunes up – racing is hardly alone in that.

    Just when you’ve got your pint drinking time mastered at 25mins to allow 5 minutes to get a bet on they go and change it all round :(

    EC, agree with your lay of Hucking Hill though would  rather oppose with Mogok Ruby e/w than the fav but not sure about opposing Roman Quest – granted 3.2 is not a very backable price but I would not want to be against it either.  If you collect on both of these lays very well done but the two of them together at the prices they are worry me as a potential loss-maker if one comes in, which is more than possible.  Hail The Chief is also a short price to back in my opinion but it has me interested in this race and was entered in tomorrows spring cup but not declared this morning – I can’t make my mind up what that means but will probably be on it.  Good luck with the 2 lays though.
