JON LEES FALLON STRIKES BACK"
"FALLON cuts deficit as DE SOUSA concedes ....
"KIEREN FALLON adds fresh spice to the jockeys' title race last night after riding a double at
Wolverhampton to leave him just seven behind PAUL HANAGAN ...
"DE SOUSA, who trails the defending champion by 13 and is a 33-1 chance for the title, dismissed his prospects of maintaining a realistic pursuit of his rivals in the wake of a careless riding suspension.
"AYR BLOWN OFF COURSE There was nowhere to hide from the strong winds and torrential rain, that prompted the abandonment of
Ayr's meeting yesterday after three races, also causing frustration for champion jockey PAUL HANAGAN in his bid to retain his title as he missed five rides and challenger SILVESTRE DE SOUSA who missed four. "
HOW YESTERDAY'S JOCKEYS WOULD HAVE FARED UNDER NEW BHA GUIDELINES:
"FROM 16 races run yesterday, four winning jockeys would have been punished under the new whip regime that starts on Monday for hitting their mounts more than five times in the final furlong or after the last obstacle.
"On the Flat, DURAN FENTIMAN hit FIRST PHASE nine times in the final furlong when winning the nursery which would mean he would have received an 11-day ban from Monday."
Worcester, SAM THOMAS, for six strikes on AKBABEND after the last in the opener, RICHARD JOHNSON for seven aboard LOCO GRANDE and KIELAN WOODS for six strikes on from where the flights of the final hurdle stand in the bumper, would all have received suspensions. The jockeys at CASTLETOWN BRIDGE would all have been safe under the rules from the final obstacle." Exeter

PETER SCARGILL SPECIAL REPORT
" TRACKS TO ROLL BACK THE YEARS why racecourses are planning to cut back on post-racing concerts and concentrate on the old favourites.
"JOCKEY CLUB RACECOURSES, Britain's biggest racecourse group, looks set to drop a number of after racing concerts and shift its focus from boy-bands to legends despite recovering from a sharp fall in attendances during its core season to report 'a substantial seven-figure profit' this summer. .....
