    I got the same guff .. I’ve unsubscribed again, maybe this time?

    The only thing they that’s worth looking at is the database, all of the other stuff is pin sticker material.

    Haven’t they heard of a tap?

    In answer to the OP, I would expect their hits are well down and the advertisers are probably beginning to grumble.

    Haven’t subscribed, can’t say I’ve missed it and have certainly got used to operating without it.

    .. that’s the problem when you have a free site that’s plastered with adverts and then you want folk to pay for it as well .. a bit like having your cake and eating it. 2 + 2 = 4 not 5.6. Let’s hope the millions of subscribers make up for the loss in advertising revenue.

    The only thing I miss is the post-Race Analysis. However there’s an upside to this in that I am now able to resist the temptation to try to find the winner of the Class 5 Handicap for No Hopers at Lord-knows-what-track, and can retain my focus on the better class races where I know the horses and the form withoit having to read it up.

    Couldn’t do without it to be honest and as the UM comes with unlimited RUK streaming it’s unfortunately an essential.
