The Other Side: TopSport Podcast Episode 8… On the latest podcast, we chat with Tristan from TopSport about the spring majors markets, dealing with smart punters, and the impact of having so much sport happening at the one time.

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.
