Talk about taking liberties,. How the hell can Martin Dwyer be banned for a period of 8 months!! – I have watched the race so many times –
Lets look at the facts!!
Martin Dwyer was ridding a horse called ice age the 6/4 jolly when finishing third – I have watched a rerun of the race at least a dozen times. Believe me, my experience is of the highest order when spotting a blatant non-trier – Martin Dwyer gave the selection every chance of winning the race. The horse was not good enough, yes there was slight interference when another runner in the race came across and took the favourites ground – selection finished 3rd. Next minute all hell breaks out!
The Indian punters then decided upon taking the law into their own hands charging the stewards room – causing chaos – in turn the security had to take Martin Dwyer aside and protect him from the outrageous Indian public – these people should have been charged with the riot act!
Lets not forget the same happened to Richard Hughes given a 50 day ban only to be reciprocated by the BHA board last year. It’s time these people who run the sport here in the UK got behind their man – and reciprocated the Martin Dwyer scandal once and for all.
As a punter and supporter of the sport I have witnessed some terrible rides…
Let’s make a small example, a 5f sprint has to be held up and produced as late as possible. Stalls open, breaks well instead of being tucked in behind the leaders and the bloody jockey leads – selection stuffed with over 2f to run. Thats a crime!
Martin Dwyer has 72 hours to appeal – BHA have some balls and stand up for one the best jockeys in the country by reciprocating the ban – the reason India are so harsh is because they understand how corrupt the sport is in their own country!!
They should be held accountable for trying to tarnish a jockeys reputation never in all my years have I witnessed such a severe penalty – there was nothing wrong with the ride.
