Struggling Adelaide United are up next from MJL456's blog

Jockeys are set to face stiffer penalties for manoeuvres that might impact on the safety or fairness of a race by causing interference. Bouchon Hydro Flask France . The change is part of moves to take effect from May 23 with the intention of providing a greater deterrent to riders, and comes as the result of British Horseracing Authority consultation with the Professional Jockeys Association, as well as the National Trainers Federation and Racehorse Owners Association.Under the new structure, Andrea Atzenis three-day ban incurred for careless riding in a controversial renewal of last years St Leger at Doncaster would now carry a ban of seven to eight days for improper riding. The BHA said there was a common feeling among those consulted that the rules and penalty structures should be reviewed during what is a usual annual process, following a series of offences in high-profile races in 2015.Instances where a rider manoeuvres during a race, when he knows or ought reasonably to have known, that by doing so interference would occur, are to be categorised as improper rather than careless and are set to carry a higher penalty of up to 21 days, with a minimum of four days for interference-related offences.In contrast, the impact of bans for the most minor offences will be reduced.One-day suspensions are to be removed from the bottom of the penalty range for careless riding in order that minor offences which would previously have incurred a one-day suspension will now receive a caution.The top end of the penalty range for careless riding is to be increased from nine days to 14 days.However, penalties for whip-related offences are to remain unchanged.

We are grateful to the PJA for their constructive participation in this project.The alteration to the penalty range for careless riding serves to, at the top end, provide a greater disincentive to ride in a careless manner, and at the same time, by dropping one day suspensions, ensure that riders are not incurring unwarranted suspensions for minor offences.Stier added: We are aware that niggly one-day offences may seem a minor penalty, but they do have an impact on jockeys as it causes them to lose potential earnings for a day.We have agreed with the PJA that it is appropriate to commence applying suspensions for careless riding at a level of offence which has previously incurred a two-day suspension.Therefore offences which would have incurred a one-day suspension will now instead attract a caution.On the subject of the whip, Stier said: We remain satisfied overall with the way in which British riders are adhering to the whip rules. We are encouraged by the ongoing decrease in the number of whip offences.The increased number of offences in Group or Grade One races in 2015 did prompt us to undertake a more detailed analysis of the data to see whether a trend was developing. That analysis revealed no evidence to support the development of such a trend.We do not see a need for further review of the penalties for whip offences as long as the downward trend in breaches continues, including those in high-value races.The British jockeys at Cheltenham recently showed that it is possible to ride within the rules in valuable races. We expect riders to continue such an approach throughout the remainder of the jump season and into the Flat season.
