Welcome to Nicholas Godfrey (GB) (Racing Post)

The British Fixture List must be removed from further wacky BHA

  government impostors' abuse and meddling.
The British Fixture List needs to be drawn up by top Flat Turf trainers, like Sir Michael Stoute, Clive Brittain. John Gosden, Rachel Hood,  Ed Dunlop. Jump Turf trainers like Jonjo O’Neill, Nicky Henderson,
Nigel Twiston-Davies, Paul Nicholls; To include British Champion Flat Turf Jockey 2013 Richard Hughes. And British Champion Jumps Turf Jockey 2013 A P McCoy. 

Andrew Dietz  brings news:
. “Morphine positives now stand at seven. “
“TWO more horses have tested positive for morphine, it was revealed yesterday, when the BHA made it clear positive detection from post-race samples obtained in recent weeks could not be ruled out.
“Yesterday’s development takes the number of confirmed cases to seven, with Tony Carroll admitting Ocean Legend tested positive for morphine after winning at Brighton on June 24.
“Carroll joins fellow trainers Sir Michael Stoute, Eve Johnson Houghton, Gay Kelleway and Charlie Hills in having been caught up in the latest drama to envelop the sport’
“Hills was the first to come forward last week, while the issue intensified on Tuesday night when Buckingham Palace revealed the Queen’s Estimate had tested positive after finishing second in last month’s Ascot Gold Cup.
“The same happened to Royal Ascot runner Russian Realm, who like Estimate is trained by Stoute, following his ninth in the Buckingham Palace Handicap.

British Justice on Trial:

Bearing in mind the colluded poor form that the British political, legal, racecourse and horseracing government have shown, the gross injustices these governments have dished out and  got away with dishing out over the last six decades due to their bloodhorse illiteracy; contaminating and breaking the lives of so many true trainers and jockeys unjustly. To say nothing about all the horses they are guilty of snuffing out. ...

“Scudamore’s chances to make up for mistake. "

“TOM SCUDAMORE today gets an early opportunity to partially right Monday’s dramatic wrong, when he jumped the first fence instead of the first hurdle on the well supported Run Forest Run at Cartmel.

“The same horse contests a 3m handicap hurdle at Uttoxeter, for which trainer Karen McLintock and owner Carolyn Todd “unanimously” voted to retain the services of Scudamore, who was hit with a 12-day ban for his error.

“We were all in agreement and were glad he could still ride the horse here, “ said McLintock, speaking yesterday after just completing the 300 miles drive to the track from her base in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

“She added: “We’re still finding out how much ability and attitude to race the horse has. I thought at Cartmel we were going to find out one way or the other having someone like Tom on, because he’s a top jockey and professional through and through and would have been able to tell us if it’s worth keeping him in training.
“I feel sorry for Tom. He was beating himself up about it and didn’t need anyone else to do it. It’s why they put erasers on the end of pencils; because people make mistakes. You could tell by his face coming back in he was disgusted with himself and I don’t think he will make the same mistake twice.
“On today’s race, in which Run Forest Run faces ten rivals, McLintock said: “It looks a bit more competitive than Cartmel was, which is a bit of a shame, but there’s so little for him that we thought we might as well bite the bullet. “ Uttoxeter Card page 40.

Racecourses who have chase courses running alongside hurdle courses especially when running into the first hurdle, when there is a chase fence not dolled off so close to the hurdle track. We saw what happened on Monday.  Clearly Tom Scudamore’s first priority was to make sure he didn’t let Run Forest Run get all entangled up racing into the first hurdle upsides, amongst all the other runners. His reason for opting to go wide of the field in the first place. Nothing wrong with doing that at all. Once a jockey gets the leg- up on a racehorse his whole perspective changes fast, when actually in the saddle. People don’t realise this. When riding at speed in a race, situations can develop fast especially in jump racing when there are a lot of other runners all around you with hurdles or fences to jump, hazardous in fact far more dangerous than Flat racing. So no, Tom was not the only one to blame and call a chump. Tom did not deserve that mockery. For starters jockeys can't see what is going on behind them.

The M25 Motorway does not leave drivers in the lurch as to every which-way to go. A car is a machine, racehorses are not machines as neither are their riders. Racecourses fall well below standard in all Equus Zone issues.
