  1. Quite! Interestingly trainers hv been relatively quiet – till their jock gets a ban! My info is most agree with new rule + last furlong amendment. Also will make many jockeys better riders/ balanced. Clerks of courses wr part of research sample. Many said they had received comments re whip from new racecourse visitors. Certainly there is a belief that if nowt changes the whip cld be banned totally in couple of yrs. Acting pragmatically I guess.

    • Hi Kate,

      Against the odds it looks like today’s bans were restricted to the Flat boys. Perhaps jocks are all adjusting and it should have been given more time rather than causing such a stir in week one.
