Hi - thanks for the question; we should have these loaded on Friday evening, but we will update again tomorrow.

Great, thanks for the update.
The cards have arrived so should be fetchable from 7:30 pm tonight
Thank you. When using the automated scripts to update the database, how would I know if the updates have been successful from the command terminal? I'm updating on my Mac and all I get is 'loading updates from 'http:...'
I always run a query at command line if wanting to check the data is loaded, eg:
>smartform (alias to starting mysql with username/ password)
>select scheduled_time, course from daily_races where meeting_date >= CURDATE();

This returns:

| scheduled_time      | course    |

Great, thank you. Do the Betfair daily mappings not update until the morning of the Raceday?
Yes, always morning of raceday - usually by 9 am.
