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
