            No Sir, not a fan if I’m honest, I went once years ago and 90% of the people there never watched a watch or saw a horse, each to their own…

              Yes , I understand what your saying . Never been myself , Not sure i want to jump through all those hoops .
              Dress code etc., not to mention the cost . especially sharing that experience with thousands of people who realistically
              are not even racing fans. Only thing i heard on i.t.v was that they restricted the numbers to give people a" better Experience ".
              Maybe Cheltenham could learn from that ??.

                A few friends of mine went at various stages last week and they all said there were no issues whatsoever with getting drinks, food, toilet facilities etc so it looks like the experience for racegoers was improved for the
                restrictions.
                Sadly I think Cheltenham will use that as justification for going to 5 days and do something similar with attendances, and whilst I’m not a fan of a 5 day festival if they were to cap attendance at 50,000 and that meant facilities were easily accessible I’d be less against it…

                • went 3 days - 2 in royal enclosure and other was in owners area. Have to say it was a far better exp than chelt and even beats arc day in paris. Racing + on course exp were great but the added craic pre and post just lifts it up several notches.

                  Completely disagree about knowledge of racing, but that is probably dependent on who you go with [same as chelt really]
