    i bet the police and the jury don’t understand racing and for the record i think Fallon is innocent but by all means if i’m wrong string him up, but prove it don’t talk nonsense about how he should be banned for a year til he proves his innocence unless he is compensated for every penny he will lose for the year and for that matter the rest of his carreer.  He’s winning to much, how can you fix a race from the front? shhot me down like a dog but i’ll stand by KF

    EC, the letter’s on the RP site. Go to "news", then "cuttings" and search under "Ray Murrihy". Murrihy’s involvement in the case is very interesting. Much of Jarvis’ letter can be dismissed as self-serving but it’s not hard to see one or two likely lines of defence in what he says.

    Schumi,<br>In due course the Crown Prosecution Service will have to prove their case beyond all reasonable doubt before a judge and jury.<br>I have no idea as to the stength of the evidence or whether Fallon or anyone else is guilty- certainly Fallon would be a greedy "b*****d" were he to be as he  has earned more than enough money legally. <br>However he and his co-accused face serious criminal charges of systematically defrauding the sport and its followers and to my mind should not be allowed to participate in it until the matter is resolved in order to maintain public confidence. This has been widely debated on other threads. It would be the norm in most other areas of employment.<br>As regards financial compensation, this was provided to Lynch and Williams but Fallon is licensed abroad and has chosen to ride on.<br>He may of course be successful in getting his interim Uk ban overturned in the High Court today.

    It is a myth that Fallon’s livelihood as been affected. He is licenced by the Irish Turf Authority and is free to and continues to ride under their jurisdiction.

    Unfortunately racing is a particularly insular and inward looking industry  prone to rallying round and closing ranks to protect its own when subject to outside scrutiny from e.g. the police, authorities, investigative journalists etc. who "don’t understand racing or its working practices".<br>Some of this tendency is out of simple self interest but much of it is simply naive. In a competitive economy for both leisure and betting it is important that racing maintains public confidence.

    report of the submissions made for KF this morning here:

    http://www.sportinglife.com/racing/news … 21833.html

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><br>The financial consequences for former champion jockey Kieren Fallon and his dependants will be disastrous if his current racing ban is upheld, the High Court heard on Thursday.

    ……..Mr Pannick said that if the ban was upheld, the financial consequences for Fallon and his dependants would be “disastrous”.

    Once he lost the Coolmore retainer, racing in Ireland would provide him with a very modest income as a jobbing jockey which would not meet his existing financial commitments to his dependants, which were in excess of £200,000 a year.

    Those court orders could, of course, be varied, he said, but variation would mean Fallon’s children would have to leave their schools and they and their mother would lose the matrimonial home because the jockey would not be able to keep up payments.

    Anything to be taken out of the fact it seems they are considering the case rather than the usually just declining to get involved in sports governing decisions?Wit?
