    When the SIS rep in the SP team is replaced in April at 5 courses by the AMRAC rep (and at another 25 next year), will SIS start sending its own SPs (and vice versa) ?

    Of 8,300 betting shops in UK  7,500 owned by multiples,<br>they will as most do now offer their own prices on all races including those managed by AMRAC,

    AMRAC hope to impose their own restrictions on us on-course bookmakers from conveying our prices to the outside world.

    If a big IF, they are able to convince the minority of single ownership shops it will give them an advantage over the multiples they still wouldn’t be able to operate viably,

    punters will be the losers, the mutiples wont be blackmailed, the UK racing product is not that profitable, betting shops can easily continue without it,

    ie. machines, micky mouse, sports betting, lucky numbers, greyhounds, even virtual footie,

    I will go without AMRAC it will price itself out of the market eventually

    "We support the current SP system and want it to continue because the punter trusts it," said David Harding, the chief executive of William Hill.

    Surely, the more interesting question is why this state of affairs developed.

    What disclosure protocol should this thread now have?

    Let the Big 3 have their own industry SP’s for the mugs in the betting shops.  This would put an end to the same Big 3 pumping money into the on course market to manilpulate the SP.  The on course bookies who take the easy money, shorten the odds and then hedge back into Betfair would be redundant.  A nice solution for most of us.

    Wot u fink Baz?????
