QUESTION OF THE DAY.

Should racecourses ban racegoers from using mobile devices to bet on course? No, the only way a ban could work would be to copy The Open golf, where the phone is taken and then handed back at the end. But that would deter people from racing. ablett It would be impossible to police and, as the bookmakers use exchanges, totally unfair. We should have terminals installed on course. tindooi No. Customers have paid their entrance fee and they are entitled to bet how they want. If course bookies offered better prices and place concessions it wouldn't happen. I got one sixth the odds a place at Folkestone the other day. Graham Newing on Facebook Don't the bookies use mobile devices to bet with off-course sites such as Betfair? Why don't we all just put our money in their satchels before racing starts and let them go home early. Chris Dalton on Facebook No way. I always used to bet on course with the bookies, but their ridiculous place terms drove me away and I now use mobile internet. Andrew Morris on Facebook Yes. Go to the window or the bookie and make your bets like the rest of us do. Jess Morris on Facebook If they do, I wish them the best of luck trying to enforce it. Diarmuid Deegan on Facebook I just wish I could get a damn signal at the course in order to make a bet online. Sarah Jane Hyde on Facebook Today on racingpost.com Who will win the Coral-Eclipse?
