I mean it totally makes a difference if you win or not... but seriously a good night had by all. If you’re a large group the packages are worth looking at: dinner, drinks, programme, free bet all included - you can’t really go wrong.

We went to the greyhounds on a Friday evening on the Fab 4 package. £10 gets you some fast food, a drink and a race programme. Great value. Didn't win on the greyhounds but a good night out.
