Enhancements and changes to your website

We are continuing to invest heavily in to bring you the best racing website in the world and June 23 saw yetanother flurry of improvements:

1. All race videos (including archive videos from the end of 2008) now play in Flash format, so you can now watch them in the Firefox, Safari and Google Chrome browsers as well as in Internet Explorer

2. There is an enhanced Tipping section, which now features Trading Post Extra - an exciting new service in which our top tipsters take a look at the morning markets to advise bets for exchange players - as well as old favourites Training Centres and Big-race Trends, as appear in the newspaper

3. We have brought back a Racing Post tradition - Diomed is the all-new at-a-glance tipping service, found on the racecards

4. We have improved navigation from the racecards, giving you more customisation options

5. We have extended the News Archive so that it goes all the way back to 1998

6. There are numerous speed and functionality improvements, which, from your feedback, we're sure you'll appreciate

You will also notice that parts of the website now require you to log in to access the content. This is because we are preparing for the launch, in July, of our Members' Club. If you do not already have a username and password you will need to register (it is free and fast) before you will be able to log in to the site. Once we introduce Members' Club you will need to purchase a membership to continue to access the content that currently requires you to be logged in to view it.

Racing Post is committed to delivering exemplary insight and analysis, and to keeping you up to date with racing and betting news from all over the world. We do our research properly. We don't cut corners. However, to sustain this level of service requires significant investment and resource. With that in mind, we will shortly be introducing a small charge for those of you looking for the most in-depth information and data on our website.

For most visitors the launch of Members' Club means no change. You can still access over 90 per cent of the website completely free of charge. But we're sure you're interested to know what content will become part of the Members' Club, so we've listed the key features below. Many you will already be familiar with, but there are also some new and enhanced features. Moredetails, including about the different subscription packages available, will be released soon.

From July the following content will be accessible to members only:
