1. After assessing  bookmaker/attendee ratios for January/February does such a 'one size fits all' approach toward attendance correlate with a social distancing strategy designed to ensure covid security ?

2.It is disappointing that JCR have seen fit not to liaise with the BLC that they have established at each of their tracks...I am a member of the BLC at Warwick, and would have welcomed the opportunity to ,at least, represent my fellow bookmakers in discussions to ensure that the betting positions at Warwick were utilised in such a way that attendees could place their bets in as safe and competitive environment as possible.

3.Did racecourses actually consult with any bookmakers either individually or as an association before making this decision ?....and what of future plans ?....if crowds remain restricted indefinitely beyond April, do they intend to keep the same protocols in place ?

Use exchange

No chance of breaching social distancing and better prices

In my opinion.

Number per book is subjective.  Personally, I would have suggested a ration of 100:1.  In my opinion, Racecourses have selected this number but also feel it could be reviewed, so Mug pls raise with AGT

Jimnast, just had a look at the lay comp and can see why old bookies don't do any laying anymore Cry.

What was wrong about my comment, thanks

Morning Sugersteve1....You are spot on, the number of books able to provide a SAFE and competitive betting environment for attendees at each course is HIGHLY subjective, and is hugely dependant on the layout of the betting ring.As I've said, JCR have the perfect medium via the BLC to be as inclusive as possible where discussion of numbers is concerned....and have chosen not to use it...why ? I'm sure that we ALL want course betting to be conducted in as safe and enjoyable manner as possible on restart...I'm not sure that creating an arbitrary, inflexible bookmaker/attendee ratio will fulfil EITHER of those criteria !

Morning Jimnast....Couldn't possibly say whether ANYBODY from the bookmaking community has been consulted...I know I haven't...either way, they've got this wrong....let's hope that it does not result in even more negative publicity for our industry....that's the last thing we need !!!!!!
