    it’s often found in a horses analysis on the racing post website. Rose Bloosem’s first run for example.

    Just to get the answer in first, it means someone can’t type.

    & pound ; (without the spaces) is the html code for a pound symbol.

    Now the witticisms can begin… 8)

    What, you mean as in someone typing Rose Bloosem instead of Rose Blossom?

    Yes, it means £ ….
    For some reason the software converts it into a&phound even when you type in "£"
    But I’ll have a word with the IT experts tomorrow and try to stop it happening
    Thanks for spotting this, blackfingernail

    Err, if you’re going to have a word with their ‘IT experts’ Lee, there’s quite a few other problems you might mention – would you like me to start a new thread? :lol:

    The £ problem is being sorted and should be corrected when the next update takes place on Monday, hope that helps

    Pleased to say this has been fixed now (in Results/Analysis on racingpost.com); it has backdated so all earlier cases have been updated too. Do let me know if you spot anything else that needs tweaking or explaining and I’ll do my best to get it sorted, cheers

    Thanks, Lee – your starter for ten:

    1, When are they going to sort out the racecards so that weights and ratings are no longer printed over each other (mainly on NH cards)?
    2, Why do we no longer get standard times and comparisons for foreign form in a horse’s form profile? They are still on the database, but it’s daft having to search for them separately.
    3, Why does the card for an individual race no longer tell us which meeting the race is at?

    More to follow! :)

    Any chance that the Big-Race Entries page can tell us at what forfeit stage the current card is showing?

    Also, when you click on a trainers’ entries, it does not give details of horses engaged in 2yo races (the sales races for the ’09 season at the moment), or in next years Derby – can this be done?

    Two RP.com Form page queries, Lee :P

    6) In the past when I pointed to a horse’s name on the full race record

    page I could swear the stallion/dam details automatically appeared in the

    bubble. "Horse- click to view details" now appears. Can we have the

    Stallion/dam details back? It’s well worth seeing who the sire is without

    having to click into full details. There are only so many clicks the online

    punter can tolerate even with broadband!

    7) After clicking into,say, fifteen or twenty race page details I find this

    option freezes and I have to log out completely from my PC to enable

    access to full race details again. Does the RP by any chance limit the

    number of races punters can access at any given time or is this someting

    to do with my PC?

    I suspect it may to be with your PC and the amount of space available for cache storage.

    The weirdest thing for me is just clicking on a horse’s name on the racecard, instead of getting its form, you get taken to Betfred, WillHill, Sportingbet etc etc.
