    Kevin Darley – soon to be out of the picture – crassly (and possibly naively) uses the Cheltenham Festival as a negotiating threat ahead of upcoming meeting re- whip rules.

    If he watched Kennedy yesterday he must be ruing this comment…

    The guys that are riding winners at high-profile meetings are sportsmen at the top of their game and they’re only doing what they feel is expected of them to stay as competitive as they can

    Number 1 thing for a sportsman Kevin – PLAY BY THE RULES

    Darley is completely out of his depth, should have gone months ago.
