Making every All Weather day a winning day
After my criticism of the Taunton Stewards yesterday It will be interesting to see the reaction of stewards at Lingfield Park towards David Probert dropping his hands on Paphos believing the race to be won in the opener.
Speaking through the pocket with a 2 point win for subscribers of The Actuary Horse Racing Tips at 9-4, certainly not! I have almost become apathetically unemotional over jockey malpractice.
If you believe Robert Hawker was deserving of a 12 day ban, you wouldn't be expecting to see David Probert much before the summer. Consistency among stewards is not their strong suit and I fear that it will be no more than a month at most.
Backers of Paphos have done their money and Probert will simply shrug it off and be free to do the same again when he next chooses to have a break. How about a public apology? That would go along way in making me feel better.
