It was a relief to hear that Robbie Cotgrave and Kit Campbell are going to be all right. I note they are now ‘colleagues’ rather than ‘freelance cameramen’ to Race Tech. What a turnaround in 24 hours, eh?
I see the whip has raised its leather-knobbed head once again via a story in the Post:
Changes to the whip’s role and deterrents for its misuse in British horseracing are set to be in place before May next year, with the BHA believing “some level of reform” is a likely consequence of the delayed consultation into the whip, which launches on Thursday.
BHA chief executive Julie Harrington said racing “must be willing to listen” on the whip, while chief regulatory officer Brant Dunshea stated the aim was for any changes to “deal with the issue for some time”.
My nap today is that this will not go down well with Dilton. Sadly, it’s ‘no offers’ on that.
It’s well seen that the markets were running scared of me yesterday. Having put up Zagato at evens they backed him into 2/7. I’m going for the hat trick with Johnny Boom in the 1.45 Yarmouth today.
As ever, use the comments below for your nap and for anything else you want to discuss.
