To download meeting files, simply click on the Download button
on the Speed Bar, or the smaller Download button on the
Speed Bar, and the Download Menu will appear with the list of today's
meetings at the extreme left, followed by subsequent days to its right.
Meeting files are generally available at least two days before the event.
Each day's listing comprises two columns displaying the meetings available for downloading. The Metropolitan meetings, in three letter code, are in the left column and the Provincial and Country meetings are in the right column. At the foot of the columns is the 'Jockeys' file (Jocks) and the Late Jockeys file (Late).
To select meetings for downloading, you can click on each of the meetings you want, plus the jockey file for that day. If you want all Metropolitan Meetings, click the 'Metro' button. If you want all meetings for that day, click on 'All'. The selected meetings and jockey file will be highlighted in red. Clicking on an already selected (red) meeting will deselect it.
have finalised your choices, make sure you are connected to the Internet,
then click the 'Connect' button. GTX then automatically connects to
the appropriate server and downloads and imports your selected files, and when it's finished, all you
have to do is select and load those meetings you want to view in
the GTX Race Screen.
The Late File
As previously mentioned, the Late file will also contain
the TAB codes of the day's meetings, which allow GTX to display
the current TAB Win and Place Dividends, and Win, Place and
Exotics pools. These dividends and pools are continually updated
until the close of race, and a short time thereafter the finishing
positions of the placegetters will appear in their 'FinPos' column. The display of the TAB information is dependent
on the appropriate columns being selected for inclusion in the
Field View. These columns are the Win Odds and Place Odds
for the QLD, VIC, and NSW TABs, and FinPos. To learn
how to select columns for inclusion in the various views of GTX,
see Select Columns.
