Beginners Guide

Racing can be a wonderful, exciting, sport but it can be overwhelming and confusing for the first time racegoer. People talking in a seemingly strange language, large sums of money changing hands. Even striking a bet in the betting ring can be intimidating for the first time racegoer.

The aim of this part of the web site is to help you get the most from your first visit to the races so you can fully appreciate what is on offer.

Racing Live

There will no longer be live racing coverage or reportage.

Click Here for an archive of previously covered meetings

Live updates on the site ceased in November 2013. The site now serves as an archive, with the course reviews as they were in 2013. The reviews are still generally valid, however prices quoted will invariably have changed and are therefore indicative only.The beginners guide is still valid. The Beast section contains a record of all articles written during the life of the web site.The live racing archive contains all racing reports from 2007 - 2013.

Most of the later items and reports are written using a responsive format which should display on mobile devices. However some of the older content is not responsive so may not display properly on mobile devices or some modern browsers.

Our Other Web Sites

Old Moaner

The site is still in Beta stage but some content is now live

The site will, hopefully, be both fun and informative.

There are Old Moaner blogs, travel guides, even cooking guides.

This is my personal web site, partly live but still very much under development.

It will be of more interest to family and friends to be honest. But it will include a gallery of photographs and, in time to come, a section where photographs and custom greetings cards may be purchased.
