STAR GUEST THE MAN OF THE MOMENT PAUL BITTAR  (AUS) (NZ)
Racing Post Report By Peter Scargill 11:02AM Sat 21 JAN 2012





"THE jockeys and the BHA are thinking along the same lines on a number of whip issues according to new BHA chief executive Paul Bittar, who admitted that the regulator had some sympathy for riders.

However, despite saying that aspects of the whip review did not work in practice, Bittar said there would not be a dramatic overhaul of the rules.

Bittar started his new role at the BHA on Wednesday and was part of a meeting with representatives from the Professional Jockeys' Association on the whip on Friday.

He said on Saturday: "The key issues we discussed yesterday are the ones that have been discussed in the media; the retention of prize-money, what they feel are disproportionate penalties compared to the breaches and also the opportunity for stewards to use more discretion and common sense to be applied when considering if a hit has been used for safety reasons. I have to say we're understanding and in some ways sympathetic to those issues.

"The riders came along initially saying we want a set number [of hits], we want clarity. We've now realised when that's actually practically applied it doesn't work in the way that we thought it would.

"I think our role as regulator is not to be dogmatic and say come hell or high water these are the rules and you'll abide by them and they won't change."

He added: "The number of hits wasn't a key issue for the jockeys and there are key elements of the review that won't change. Any considerations that we do give will really be about the issues that the riders raised yesterday."

Speaking on Channel 4 on Saturdaymorning, Bittar also said that capturing levy from offshore bookmakers "would be the main success measure of my time" at the BHA.

"I think no one would argue losing out on the offshore element is a loophole that shouldn't exist," he said.

"I think there's a fantastic opportunity through government to create some sort of licensing regime that ensures all wagering on British racing via the internet, phone, offshore, in the high street gets captured by the levy. It's fundamentally right that it should be captured."

PAUSE FOR THOUGHT





 JOHN LEES  REPORTS FOR THE RACING POST THIS MORNING
"BHA SET TO REWARD GOOD PRACTICE ON WHIPS

"The BHA last night signalled it could be prepared to address jockeys' concerns over the controversial whip rules by introducing incentives for good behaviour ....
J MARGARET CLARKE TURFCALL
We are not dealing here with good behaviour rules, we are attempting to sort out the difference between bloodhorse literate whip rules and bloodhorse illiterate whip rules. To date the BHA have not even bothered to look at anything that is bloodhorse literate. Where are their bloodhorse literate whip rules?
 
The BHA bloodhorse illiterate whip rules abuse both the horses and the handler rider jockeys. Does the BHA want to abuse all horses and all handler riders? Is this their main aim?

HUGHES WINS APPEAL OVER INDIAN FOUL RIDING CHARGE
By Lee Mottershead 1:30PM 20 JAN 2012

"RICHARD HUGHES has had the month-long ban he received for elbowing a fellow rider revoked by the Royal Western India Turf Club, clearing him to ride in the country's Oaks on Sunday and Derby two weeks later.

"Hughes was found to be guilty of improper riding, roughly equivalent to Britain's careless riding, rather than foul riding. The month-long ban that would have ruled Hughes out of the Derby and Oaks at Mumbai racecourse was revoked and replaced with a fine of £1,283 (100,000 rupees).

"I'm obviously delighted to have been successful in the appeal. It's a weight off my mind and I'm now looking forward to riding in the Oaks on Sunday and the Derby two weeks later," said Hughes, who has enjoyed repeated success in the subcontinent Classics.

"Hughes had insisted the elbowing of rider S Zervan earlier this month had been in self-defence as he feared he would be forced through the running rail by Zervan's mount, who was hanging right.
