Well I don’t know Mr Scotney but I think he has nothing to gain on behalf of racing or the BHA. It’s OK working to prepared press releases but, although he’s hardly likely to get the Paxman treatment, you need to be pretty slick to field questions and debate effectively on live TV.
Even if he turns out top-notch, this affair should quietly be left to fade, rather than kept in the limelight imo.
Never argue with a fool. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience, then onlookers might not be able to tell the difference. https://lazybet.com/
Given the BHA has taken a bit of a mauling over certain issues recently, perhaps they are trying to restore some credibility within racing. Shining the spotlight on a man who has done his job well may do that. Of course any awkward questions he can simply swerve by saying that to discuss the issue might compromise future investigations.
One awkward question is if BHA had all that evidence to "convict" 1 -3 years ago, why the hell were the jockeys allowed to ride (and be bet upon/ against) for the whole of the past flat season? The Warwick Davis of racing integrity?
