    At a pinch they could have given some pro drivers 2 regions while making sure they did not overlap
    eg Sugars, Gath, Bellman - West and Inner West
    Alford, Herbertson, Frenning - North East and Central
    Of course this has the potential to take out 2 regions with 1 virus case but we do have 7 regions compared to NSW's 4

    Doubt that would fly Kev. Martin and Daniel would not approve.
    Besides you left out one gun driver from the north east who has run past Chrissy his last two drives

    Only a couple of meetings just released, take it as a sample. Prize money per race 7000, 8000, 12000.

    The drivers (enough of) might be the tricky bit
    Chris Alford is listed to drive 4 horses in R3 at Kilmore at this point

    The driver listed with the first release of fields would be, by default, the last one who drove that horse.
    I don't think it's going to be a problem, certainly not out biggest hurdle, to continuing through COVID19.
    Off the top of my head Josh Duggan might have driven a couple of those previously...
    A tip from me - follow the form of the horse.

    I knew why Chris was listed 4 times
    A tip from me - follow which one Chris goes with

    Although we have many accomplished drivers who might run past the likes of CA
    The new regions means we are not going to see the leading drivers race against each other as much - there may only be a couple in each region

    ps I wonder why David Miles isn't driving any of his

    This is what we want to see - sharing it around

    Except Menangle trainers are still getting all the Metro stakes on Saturday
    How long has Grant Dixon been a Menangle trainer?

    From the bottom up (a hint to the HRV race programmers) David drove and won at Bathurst, has self isolated, maybe still celebrating, but his horses are racing.

    Not seeing the top drivers race against each other for this period is...we shouldn't race because of that? Hmmm

    A tip from the mouth of C Alford for last night - Alison had three in one race, Chris thought one he wasn't driving had the better chance. Odds went from 8's to 4's in a few mins, started 2's I think. Started badly and ran second. Form line suggested C A wasn't a bad tipster. BTW was public, RSN.

    edit: and no, Chris didn't win

    edit II But hey Kev, no better time to back the top drivers in the region, they should have field days. Just like the stock market now, buy in buy in buy in!

    Nobody is saying that are they?

    One side of my brain says that the top drivers might have a picnic, the other says that without their peers there - it might be a bit more unpredictable and trickier
