    Racing Post new site.

    I thought there was already a thread on this......can't find it!


    I wanted to do some research on trainer/jockey/course combinations - it was easily done on the old site but I can't find such stats on the new/improved/upgraded HAH!! site.

    Are they hidden away somewhere on there? If so could someone give me some directions, please!

    I think any references were contained in the thread on the new Sporting Life thread Col

    http://www.talkinghorses.co.uk/forum...ht=Racing+Post


    Regarding what you want to research, pretty sure you'd need to pay these days to find that sort of info on the RP site

    Actually if you search for a jockey in the white search box and then click on "Stats", then click the down arrow there's a filter facility including filter by course if you click on the down arrow beside "Display By"

    Good luck, Colin!


    I told them not to renew my membership.

    The new site is utterly, utterly awful.

    They'll say they thank us for our feedback and will take account of what we're telling them but it looks like nothing more than lip service.

    Thanks,DG, Ido pay for the basic stuff but it's much more difficult, if not impossible, to do what I want and it was so easy before.

    Agree entirely with your thoughts, DO, but I'll keep it going to have the access to the mare information, which isn't for free.

    Edit, I've just checked and the dam information is free now.

    interesting -does anybody know how much Raceform Interactive costs-I did like the way that EC1 could crunch the numbers on there and come out with some killer stats.

    I trialled RI for 6 months (got a deal - 88 for the period) but couldn't work it as easily as i used to with RSB. Also, none of this technical stuff allows me to study the way my old brain likes to do it. I like hard copies. I like making annotations on paper.

    The RP site had its uses and I'd have happily kept it going under the old format but as we discussed elsewhere it the new site appears designed by people who know nothing about racing for people only interested in getting a bet on quickly via their mobile phone.

    I had the Ultimate subscription and cancelled it after Cheltenham. It has gone so far backwards I haven't looked at it since.

    It's fantastic value, for me. There's nothing to beat seeing a race with your own eyes.

    Who is surprised about these changes? From experience, large companies only value the bottom line...don't actually care for us small fry opinion.

    If they cared about the bottom line they'd revers the changes treff. Almost everyone I know that subscribes has cancelled.

    When I visited the site last night a box popped up asking me to rate the new site from 1 (shite, presumably) -10 (o man, this is just awwwsem, like).

    I rated it 1 and this prompted the usual follow-up question about how they can improve it. I mentioned the new site had been mentioned on various forums and no-one seemed to have anything positive to say about it. I suggested parceling up the new site and sending it to fvck. (Or polite words to that effect.)

    Rang up to cancel my Racing Post membership this morning and Amanda wanted a reason - told her that since the update I haven't been able to access the information that I wanted. Amanda was sympathetic and said that they had had a number of subscribers who felt the same way. She advised me that the update was in the process of being updated and that I could have a 50% reduction of the fee for three months by which time the site should be much improved.It seemed rude not to accept her generous offer and in three months time I will be phoning again because I can't see her prediction being accurate........we shall see.
