Free downloads of both Form and Field screen shots data from Tatts have been excellent this year and minimal changes, usually none, required for their use once captured.
At one stage when a horse was a likely non runner, the Jockey name of course would not be there, but as well the field in the captured file would also be missing; causing a problem for any older computer programs expecting the field at least to be present even if blank. For some time it was the practice to insert "N Notified" as the jockey so that the software would handle the file seamlessly.
Also the Race field at one stage used to require the capture in two parts, but I have noticed lately that the whole file can be now captured in one go which is appreciated.
Just hope this data availability continues under any new structure. Much apreciated.
Not absolutely sure of the status of any new methods of data capture for us golden oldies.
