Geegeez Upgrades: 26th April 2021

If you logged into the geegeez racecards this morning and were surprised or confused by what you saw, sorry about that, and let me explain.

The video below highlights the four small (but highly visible) changes made, as do the words and pictures beneath the video - if you prefer to read than to watch.

 

Four small changes

  1. Expandable / collapsible race meetings

We've tidied up the racecard menu page further by hiding all races behind their meeting header bar, as you can see below.

Clicking on a blue bar, for example, Naas, opens the races for that meeting:

Clicking the '+' or '-' buttons top left will expand all or collapse all meetings. Nice and tidy.

 

2. Added Irish racecourse info links

We've also added links to our Irish racecourse information pages. These are packed full of intel regarding course layout, draw or run style biases, top trainers and jockeys, upcoming races, recent results, latest news and more.

We now have these in place for all courses and I encourage you to check them out if you haven't already, especially for courses you're maybe less familiar with.

 

3. Mobile card menu tweaks

We've streamlined the mobile menu to provide more space in your device's 'viewport' for the actual race you're looking at. To do that, we simply removed some of the date buttons and placed them behind a dropdown.

As you can see below, things are a bit slicker now.

 

4. Added Race Conditions data

The sole 'new data' upgrade is the addition of race conditions information. This is found in the blue race bar on the right hand side. Clicking on that link reveals, inline, the conditions for the race. This is especially useful in non-handicap races where the weights horses carry are often a little confusing without such insight.

 

There is, as ever, more coming soon, so stay tuned!
