  1. Sedgemen riding at the much more difficult 5 as opposed to 3 last time. He looked fast in his first ride behind Batchelor, passed by Ruml in his next, got a 5-1 with Brennan in his next then last in tough 13 and 15. He looks a different/more determined rider now to a few years ago, was just a tough night last night as Batchelor and Nicholls were both good.
  2. Given Glasgow got a 4-2 in heat 13 off 1&3 if my memory serves me correctly I thought their choice of 2 and 4 in 15 was odd. Batchelor made a cracking start and made the room for Harris to get up the inside. Really good close meeting that had a bit of everything and was a good evenings entertainment. First time I'd seen Killeen riding and he was on the pace after bend 2. Don't think he could have any complaints about his exclusion and from where I was stood I thought the ref got the first bend calls correct. Tempted to go back again next week Any chance of finding another spot for the enormous tractor to park as it does block the view of parts of the track. You can't see the start/finish line from the entry to bend 3. Rico
  3. Really enjoyed my first trip back to Oxford tonight, some really good races, heat 7 probably the highlight. Once they get the track right they will have a cracking circuit. Will definitely be back.
  4. I watched the full replay via browser on my tv and there was an option in the bottom left to fast forward or rewind at 10 second intervals, which I used frequently.
  5. The confirmation email states Season Pass - If you have purchased a Season Pass, this will automatically expire on the 31st October 2022 and will not auto-renew Would have been nice to have been given access to end of Feb 23 to be able to re-watch the classic Berwick Birmingham match over and over during the bleak winter months.

  6. I would say I don't think it's a bad idea, giving people more options but it does need the individual to be realistic and responsible. I get your point about potential for trouble further down the line in some circumstances but I also see upsides if it's done in the right way. In my opinion the slashing and subsequent freezing of the lifetime allowance will hit more and more individuals with a horrid tax bill as we move forward
  7. Curious as to why you think Pension freedoms are a bad idea?
  8. No problem watching the stream here other than it cutting out briefly around heat 6. This is gonna be close on aggregate going down to the wire I reckon

    European Union - In Or Out?

    Anyone buying an annuity under current legislation needs their head wobbling. Keep it invested and use drawdown.

    As people can stay invested I believe more people will get caught out by the lifetime allowance (rumoured to be getting reduced again in the future) going forward. Anyone purchasing an annuity at retirement these days needs their head wobbling imo.

    IR limits were replaced in 2006 https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pension_tax_simplification#:~:text=Pension tax simplification%2C often simply,as applied to pension schemes. Nothing is simple in the world of pensions
  12. Definitely snowed in Reading this morning - woke up to complete whiteout. Now all gone and a beautiful bright day. Rico
  13. https://www.lbc.co.uk/news/more-than-40-per-cent-over-80s-admit-breaking-covid-lockdown-rules-after-vaccine/ I'm assuming it's this ONS survey that you're referring to - I think you may have slightly misheard.

    You seem to be suggesting that Bradford isn't a "majority white area". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demography_of_Bradford

    According to Grant Shapps on LBC this morning, this has been falsely reported and only applies to passenger traffic.
