Hi guys.

Just been watching ATR with Matt Chapman and this chap was on there saying the major bookmaker on-course i.e. Ladbrokes have been thrown out and as yet; no bookmaker has replaced them.

I assume the Tote is still there and the standing / pitch bookies are there and it's just the Ladbroke shops?

I only want 2 facilities :-)

Get stuck into Geoff Banks who to be fair to him with take on the short-price stuff and the Tote for my ridiculously optimistic Placepots and even more stupid Exactas / Trifectas Laugh

Anyone know anything?

Way I understand it Laddies chose not to have the oncourse shops as they felt if wernt allowed to sponsor at the meeting it didn't sit right with them to have the shops.
Betfred still have their shop oncourse despite also not being allowed to sponsor.
Suppose question is are Laddies biting off their nose to spite face??
As for what will happen regarding the shops during Festival well racecourse seem to be telling us nothing at moment.

I read that shops at the races last year didn't make money after expenses.
