Having the replays all in one place is very convenient, the tracker shows entries nice and early which i like. You get all the papers they do, RP/Weekender/RFO etc all that is prob ?100+ a month albeit inflated in this day and age.
    For anyone paying full price Racing TV, you can also get reduced monthly payments by saying you dont watch the flat, im paying 12.50 per month now..

    I'm amazed he does so well at the horses when he's up all night and who-knows-what!

    Agreed Spectre,

    If its a matter of cost, or not needing videos much for your betting, then of course Sporting Life would be great.

    But the more serious I have got on form research, very regular use of videos as part of the antepost betting strategy has been a must-have and Racing TV are a lot better than anything else.

    Maybe one day Sky Sports Racing will make a bid for the Irish Racing coverage, and the best of the English racing, but until then I will stick with Racing TV as the first port of call.

    Also, of course, their live coverage is better than anyones elses with so many races to watch every day through the season.

    Their live stream is seconds faster than the feeds to the bookmakers sites and ITV too - which can be handy

    I used to use that, but the pictures were smaller and search a bit more fiddly. But they were free.

    Racing TV's pictures are better than anyone elses by far.

    Racing Post's are inferior but good enough, and its great to be able to press on the video replay button when you are on that horses profile, or race result, its so quick.
    Sporting life is the same tbf

    You can be on the horses profile click on its last race and then watch it from there as long as you are logged in

    And it can be full screened

    I have used both, and to me, with the amount of research of races I do, I couldn't do without it.

    Videos are key too, you get this with the Ultimate for UK and Irish racing.

    The only other place to get those in decent full format, are subscribing to Racing TV (for Irish and most UK tracks) and Free via ATR (for their UK tracks shown on Sky Sports Racing).

    1) will the receipts fade after 9 months?
    2) if they do fade, how can I stop this from happening?

    thanks in advance
    This made me laugh a lot.
