The Good Things
New website as of Feb 2010. This is a big improvement and a clear leap forward in ease of use and many more markets for you to get into, especially good if you know about the sport you are betting on. Great racing coverage with free commentaries and track information.

Its clear and easy to understand what the menus mean and where to get your information. The maximum bet available is shown without asking. The betting screen sequence is clear. Allows you bet into the Tote Pool. Menus for help and Accounts all look clear.

The really good aspect of the website is that you can bet directly into Tote pools and so can get better that track price odds if you are canny. You can also pull up all the live pool information which is better than being at the track.

Excellent all round website!

The Downside
Nothing really wrong. Front page has no need to be that messy.

Great improvement.
