Recent updates to racingpost.com
You may have noticed a few recent enhancements to racingpost.com. We’d like to explain them to you in a little more detail. Most noticeably, on the cards pages we have integrated William Hill to streamline your betting journey and rearranged the card header on both racingpost.com and our bloodstock site to improve the navigation between cards pages.
You will notice the new William Hill bet slip on the right hand side of the cards pages. This allows you to place bets quickly and easily with William Hill as well as manage your account. This is the first phase in a plan to integrate other bookmakers in a similar fashion in the coming months so that you can get your bets on quickly and easily from a choice of bookmakers.
Meanwhile, if you wish to show odds from your preferred bookmaker, just click the ‘Customise Card’ button at the top of the cards page, click on ‘preferred bookmaker’ and you can select from the list or just choose to display best odds by clicking the black button. You can use the ‘Customise Card’ button to change the display in other ways, removing or adding information to your own specification. Viewing race times is now clearer and you can navigate to any race by using the Select A Race dropdown menu at the top of the card.
Alongside these alterations we’ve added a new feature called Tipping Live where you can get all the latest betting information throughout the day live from our reporters at the track. You can use the menu to filter by meeting. This service can be found in the tab alongside the News Live tab on the News Live section of the site so it is easy to flick between the two. And if you just want to catch up with all the big stories of the day click on All Stories then choose News Round-up.
In order to make the cards cleaner, we no longer display the Print Cards link but you can still print the cards by simply pressing CTRL + P on your keyboard.
As with any website upgrade you may notice some areas of the site not performing as you would expect. If you do, or if indeed you have any feedback at all, we’re always keen to hear from you so feel free to contact our customer services team on +44 (0)1635 246 505 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
