Chiefs to review new whip rules

HORSE RACING: The British Horseracing Authority says it will review the sport’s new controversial whip rules. The move comes after discussions with a delegation of riders and the Professional Jockeys’ Association. The dispute over tougher regulations and penalties nearly led to a strike yesterday. Jockey Richard Hughes relinquished his licence last week in protest at new rules which had seen him banned twice in the space of four days.
