    Well done Lorcan Williams, but if Harry can’t ride, you are still allowed to put him in the race properly. Should get a ban imo….

    No, that’s just silly.

    Ridden in a similar position to the winner tracking the leaders, slightly awkward and lost ground two out as the winner had flown, just nudged along to get the best possible position. It would’ve been a worse ride if he’d given a nice young horse 8 lashes for the sake of finishing a couple of lengths closer.

    I think you’re wrong here. And not just slightly.

    There was a much worse ride that needed investigation at Wincanton yesterday.

    I admit, there is a bit of pocket talk involved, but there is no reason to be that tender on a horse when still full of running.

    What horse are you talking about from yesterdays Wincanton card?

    After seeing the Hugh Morgan “non stirrup and boot falling apart” legendary winning ride doesn’t it beg the question that every horse that ever pulled up in the past under the same circumstances could be classed a non trier ???

    Don’t know what the rules say. For instance if his helmet comes off with a circuit to go, would he have to pull up?
    What about if you lose some parts of the saddle and you could weigh in lighter, would you have to pull up as well?

    Well how about another simple “non trier”- Run For Free in the Scottish National in the 1990s, whips round at the start, loses a furlong, Mark Perrett keeps going and wins. Old Pipey says on Channel 4, “if we had a walkie talkie I’d have said pull him up there’s the Whitbread Saturday week”, so anything left at the start and doesn’t bother, are they non triers ?
