• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • There seems to be a problem with some alerts not being emailed to members. I have told the hosts and they are investigating.
  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting


    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

I've done my own ratings for the racing in South Africa for years now , and overall i'd say they do pretty well .. recently have started to try and select what i would consider the best bets from those , alongside a few other things like course form etc , as well as the races where i think theres a good chance of getting the forecast (and / or tricast) ... thought i would post them up

I used to do the bet that is very popular in SA, forgot its name but it was bit like dutching - think you had 3 in the bet - it was only available over here on the Tote but when Fred took over my account was suspended and stopped - but the form did work out and there were some decent web sites for info.

Hi Mark. When do you do your ratings? How you you decide what are the best selections? Sorry if that’s a really stupid question.
