ADW's drop Australia?

Anybody know why the non-A/B/C/D Australian tracks all disappeared a few weeks ago? Xpressbet was carrying Victoria and South Australia for the last few years, now nothing. I asked them but couldn't get a straight answer (aside: #worst#customer#service#ever!).

I did see a note somewhere about how the Australian nomenclature was going to change to all the tracks using abbreviations or something but not sure why that would cause it to go dark. The A/B/C/D tracks from Sky are still available.

I don't have Xpressbet, but do have DRFBets, one of their "shells". I'm seeing the ABCs for tonight, but also Mount Gambier, Sale, Pakenham, and Terang - which I'm also seeing on NYRABets and TVG.

They finally gave me a straight answer, said the contract with those tracks expired. I guess they aren't renewing it.

OK - so DRFBets (the Xpressbet shell) is SHOWING those tracks in the wagering menu - but you can't place bets.

NYRABets and TVG both allow bets to be made on them.

The content management for most of those tracks switched hands. Its still a bit messed up but will be back once they get it sorted out. I don't have a firm date.

Also Aus A/B/C will soon be broken out into the actual individual tracks and track codes.

I prefer the A/B/C format because those pp's are far more detailed than the single track pp's. I'm speaking of the free international pp's available from BRIS.
The A/B/C version has in-race running positions, final fractions, and (i think) a speed rating for each runner, as well as a small write up on each horse.
The single track pp's are the standard international ones you get for European tracks, which have very little info.

I don't know if the stuff on Skyracing would work for you. They also have a free video feed of the races:

https://www.skyracingworld.com/form

Click on the >> left of each runner to get more form details. You have to make a free login to access.

Xpressbet isn't showing any Australian tracks on the calendar after tonight, not sure if they are dropping it completely or what. I will have to move to BetPTC if they do I guess. They still appear to be carrying all the Aus tracks.
