The Other Side: TopSport Podcast Episode 40… Tristan from TopSport gives us an insight into how the trading operation looks on a big, multiple Group 1 raceday like this Saturday… And what skills do you need to play a role? Plus we check out all the market action for this weekend’s five Group 1 races. The Other Side is brought to you by TopSport.

We’re all punters. And we speak to a lot of other punters. On The Other Side podcast series we jump the fence and speak with Tristan Merlehan, Director at TopSport, to get an insight into modern-day bookmaking.

Tristan takes us through how a modern corporate bookmaker operates, the issues they face, and how changes in racing and sport impact the business.

Have you got a question for Tristan about anything we’ve discussed, or anything else related to bookmaking? Just get in touch with us and we’ll ask him on the next episode.
