Nick is joined by the Daily Mirror’s David Yates in episode recorded in the thick of a fast evolving situation. Wednesday sees paying spectators at Doncaster return to the racecourse for the first time since March as part of the government’s pilot scheme for sporting events. Already against a controversial backdrop of some local resistance, the racecourse’s St Leger Festival was further unsettled by news that broke late Tuesday evening of government plans to further restrict social gatherings. Nick talks to Doncaster MD Mark Spincer, receives the latest news from the Racecourse Association, and discusses the excitement of being there with racegoer Matt Willis.
Nick also gets the latest news from Hong Kong with JA McGrath and talks to Lisa Delany from the Jockeys’ Education and Training Scheme (JETS) about their latest series of education films focusing on addiction and substance abuse.
