Three Questions: George Primarolo
The public relations manager of Totesport, sponsoring several big races today
Saturday 08 May 2010
1. How useful is it to be generating some headline rollovers on a weekend like this?
It's great. The Scoop6 pools should hit the million today.
This bet is one of the Tote's biggest success stories, and it was devised to generate rollovers like this. The Jackpot is designed to be won on a more regular basis, but it has proved tough going for Chester punters this week. It was won to five units yesterday, with a dividend of over £124,000 to £1.
2. Totesport signed this week as the official betting partners of the Investec Derby. Pending today's trials at Lingfield, what is your own view of the race?
That deal fits really well into a portfolio that includes not only these Lingfield trials, but the Dante at York next week. As for the Derby, it looks wide open, but there was a slight over-reaction to the defeat of St Nicholas Abbey in the 2,000 Guineas last weekend. He might have been a victim of the Sea The Stars syndrome, with so many talking about another wonder horse on the scene. If you take all that away, he has run a perfectly decent Derby trial.
3. And how did you get on in the London Marathon?
Hmm. I did manage to beat the bloke with a fridge on his back, but was devastated to cross the line only about five metres ahead of Lorraine Kelly. It turned out she had started about an hour before me. Anyone prepared to sponsor me for Racing Welfare can do so through www.justgiving.com/george-primarolo.
