In this HD on camera interview recorded in November 2014, I meet independent bookie Geoff Banks. Here’s part 1 of our long and illuminating chat.

It’s been one year since I last spoke the charismatic independent bookmaker Geoff Banks. His New Year message is fast becoming a VG Tips institution. Geoff has so much to say about the state of racing that I could not edit him down to simply one part.

Here he compares the quality of racing on offer on the flat and over the jumps, discusses value in the betting market and the betting exchanges, what his late father – a one time legend in the betting ring – would have made of bookmaking today, and offers his opinion on the racing coverage aired by Channel 4.

Geoff Banks offers a personal service. Like bookmakers used to be. Visit his website at www.geoff-banks.com

Never short of a word or an opinion, here is part one of my new set of interviews with Geoff Banks, recorded in late November 2014, at his local and very nice French bred fine dining venue. Ooh la la!

      Value for money Paul! Are you not, like me, sick of soundbite TV. There will be 2 or 3 parts in total. You know how Geoff can talk. Not away he has any corgies. He may though, in the loft, have the odd dinky toy. That’s is posh pads like his have lofts. Thanks for watching. Vernon
