This doesn’t sit right with me…

So yesterday Jonathan Moore was taken to task for his excessive use of the whip when bringing home Bigbadjohn to win the Sodexo Reynoldstown Novices’ Chase at Ascot.

According to the Steward’s enquiry…

“They found him in breach of Schedule (B)6 Part 2 in that he had used his whip above the permitted level and with excessive force.”

Subsequently he’s been banned for 11 days and will miss the first day of Cheltenham.

To be honest I’m not sure how I feel about this.

Full disclosure: I’ve not seen a replay of the race.

So maybe he did go over the top and deserve the ban.

And I fully agree that horses do need protecting.

But I can’t help but think that jockeys are far more likely to get banned for trying to win a race than not trying.

And that doesn’t sit right with me.

Anyway onto happier news…

Members of JT’s Racing were celebrating yesterday thanks to 3 winners from 4 selections…

VERNE CASTLE – adv @ 9/4
SMILEY BAGEL – adv @ 5/2

February is proving a great month for the service with over 60 points profit so far.

This service has been with us less than 6 months and is already closing in on the 150 point profit mark.

A great achievement!
