    This guy is doing my freakin head in. Has the guy got a mental problem or is he the least sane member of the Derek Thompson family?

    He’s a **** who single-handedly can spoil a good days racing.

    I have to offer a different opinion as I find him very entertaining and does a lot for the sport with his enthusiasm and jovial (sometime juvenile) antics!

    Yes, he is juvenile and over the top but he at least realises it and takes the p*** out of himself. It depends what mood I’m in whether I can take him or not but all in all I think he must get credit for his enthusiasm.

    Can’t believe how many whiners there are r.e. racing hosts/commentators on here (thought that was the preserve of the Betfair forum).

    If you don’t like what is currently out there, get off your arse and go and do better yourself!

    <br>Absolutely! He’s unbearable.

    <br>And no I couldn’t do better myself, but I’m not being paid to do the job. I hope even I’d be less annoying though!

    Don’t talk through your back entry Pegwell Bay, what do you consider a horse racing forum should discuss? All aspects of horse racing maybe?<br>If someones not keen on a certain jockey do you suggest they jump up on the back of a horse and show them how it’s done?

    ……..as A.P. said about Lydia.;)

    Criticism good or bad of trainers, owners, jockeys, TV presenters and journalists is surely what racing forums are about.

    I have e-mailed and phoned Racing UK to complain about their output on a number of occassions, and I must say my bluff was called when I was offered the gig of being a guest presenter. I would definitely do a "Paul Haigh", I just know I would!! (Sorry, Paul).:o

    Coming back to Chapman, I have the feeling that one day he is going to get into to trouble. Sometimes his mouth seems out of control and I feel it is inevitable that eventually he is going to say something slanderous.

    I just hope that his producers will stand by him if/when that happens.

    If he is in the booth tonight for Teddy’s race (the 7.05) he will be at his most excrutiating worst if he wins.

    Chapman is an a*se – both on and off screen going by what I know of him.  End of story!
