TODAY’S HIGHLIGHTED RUNNER
“Hafeet Alain is really well in himself and has done well since his last race three weeks ago. This will be his first start on this surface so it will be interesting to see how he gets on but if running in a similar fashion to last time he will have a great chance.”Ed Walker

News in Brief
Apprentice jockey given 6-month ban for betting
The apprentice jockey Finley Marsh was offered some supportive words by a disciplinary panel on Thursday after he admitted betting on horses over a 16-month period in contravention of the terms of his licence, which was evidently done to feed his addiction to casino-style gambling online. The 22-year-old was given a six-month ban from racing but received dispensation to continue working at the Lambourn stable of Richard Hughes, his employer for the last six years, who gave a character reference and committed to supporting him.
