    Fine the gentleman 40,000 sterling and suspend his license from Nov. through Jan. A just punishment don’t you think?

    It’s possible they don’t want to release the news to clash with the inaugural running of The DG Taxis Get You Home Safely Handicap at Nottingham.

    Can you imagine how gutting and galling it would be to DG Taxis Get You Home Safely if national press coverage of their important sponsorship was decimated?

    Or indeed this afternoon with the running of the Goudhurst Game Handicap at Ascot.

    Given the Lynch ‘penalty’ you can hardly blame people for being sceptical. Allowed to keep their ill-gotten gains and make £40k for the privilege.

    A chance to do what? They screwed up Fallon for two years before finding him innocent. Can you imagine if he had been riding the horse that Henderson drugged up? He was champion jockey riding for Coolmore. No three months suspension for him And he was INNOCENT.No retribution no restoring his name or income. Two years waiting for his trial without a ride No keeping his job in the USA or Canada or Australia.No settlements out of court . How many chances do they need? What a bunch of incompetents.

    I suspect a fudge is coming ,large fine plus a short ban , all will be roses in a few weeks …….it will all have blown over

    Lets hope for racing they dont catch anyone, in the meantime as heavens knows how this bunch will ever manage to get it right

    its sad really , racing’s integrity is now a pliable commodity , expediency seems to rule the day

    Didn’t Fallon ride in Ireland for Coolmore whilst awaiting the trial?

    His current ban is for a failed drugs test and as such complies with the WADA guidelines (which French racing is signed up to) for such an offense.

    Yes he did; .the cheeky devil. How dare he ride while waiting two years for his trial.Coolmore have more respect for justice than the British racing authorities.What does his current ban have to do with the price of potatoes? It came from the French and was legitimate.He tested positive. I have no complaint with that.

    Haps, if there is a way of ******* this up – the BHA will find it – and they don’t care how long it takes!

    BTW are you running HF on Thursday?

    " The Disciplinary Panel of the BHA has been conducting an Enquiry into allegations of breach of the Rules of Racing made against Fergal Lynch, Darren Williams, Karl Burke and Miles Rodgers relating to various supposed dealings between them between March and August 2004.

    …the cases against Lynch and Williams were finally concluded on 25 June 2009, before the Enquiry into Burke’s and Rodgers’s activities had ended…,"
