Clearly the rocket scientists behind this strongly disagree with Jeff Bezos and he has it completely wrong with "start with your customer and work backwards"
SO this will make it easier for people new to racing? What trite, besides its not important to do anything for the customers currently betting beside confuse them.

However, this one does not make sense to me. I could be proven wrong, but imho, we have already made it difficult for Punters with MR, draw bias etc. Now we make it more difficult and time consuming for them to study form.
Are we purposely trying to create losers, for carryover's sake ? Winners and losers both contribute to tote and tote is not effected, cannot lose. Bookies, of course, gain from losers.
The problem is that if we keep Punters losing, we keep losing Punters.
This is why I have always preferred the Operators to concentrate on their tote and not buy bookmaking rights etc.
That's just my opinion. I pray for a shining light to awaken me and show me that I am wrong....

The Handicaps should be left as is. going to make life way more challenging for the punter.
they should have consulted on the change prior to making the change and also run a pilot meeting and then gathered feedback, checked turn over , win loss ratios etc before making this chnage.
Punters will punish them for this
