Police report trouble-free Derby meeting

Derby day at Epsom: police reported no serious trouble over the two-day meeting
1 of 1

Surrey Police made only nine arrests over the course of the Investec Derby festival, as the two-day meeting, which drew a 65,000 aggregate crowd, passed by without serious trouble.

Months of planning by police, alongside partners including the British Transport Police and St John Ambulance, paid off at Epsom. The only arrest carried out on Oaks day was for a breach of a criminal behaviour order and on Derby day, there was just one reported incident of affray, with the offender now released from custody.

Chief Superintendent Jerry Westerman said: “It was brilliant to meet so many friendly members of the public who were reassured and grateful to see all our officers, armed officers and community support officers at the event.

“Our policing approach received some overwhelmingly positive feedback from the racecourse, our partners and the public. The low number of arrests is down to our zero tolerance on drugs and violence. It’s something we look to build on every year.”


Fehily hoping to remove neck brace after results

Noel Fehily is hoping for positive news from the results of a scan this week after injuring his neck in a fall at the Punchestown festival in April.

The rider suffered a stable fracture to his C7 when falling from the Oliver Sherwood-trained Got Away in the 2m5f handicap chase on the penultimate day of the meeting.

Fehily said: “I’m recovering well and go back to the hospital on Thursday to get the results from my latest scan, so hopefully I'll be able to take my neck brace off and start to do a bit more.

“It was particularly frustrating to be on the sidelines for the first couple of weeks as there were still plenty of horses running but now the ground has dried up and there’s not as many runners it’s a bit easier to cope with.

“It’s not the worst time of the year to be injured but I’m looking forward to getting back in the saddle in hopefully around a month to six weeks depending on the scan results.”


Jockey hospitalised following Ballingarry point-to-point fall

Amateur rider Claire Annan is recovering in a Limerick hospital following a fall at Ballingarry point-to-point on Sunday which led to her being airlifted from the track and racing delayed by an hour.

Annan reportedly came to grief at the fifth fence aboard Liam O'Brien's Taylor’s Guest. IHRB medical officer John Downey told HRI.ie said on Sunday: “She’s conscious and has improved massively since the fall. She’s been taken to Limerick for investigations and scans.”


Melbourne Cup trophy on world tour

For the first time as part of the Lexus Melbourne Cup Tour, the trophy will travel to Britain and Ireland.

The cup will also be on show at venues in Newmarket, London, Somerset, Newbury and County Carlow next month. For full details of the tour destinations, click here.


Blackmore relishing life at the top

Former champion conditional jockey Rachael Blackmore's blistering start to the jumps season in Ireland has led to her topping the leading rider standings but she is keen to keep a level head about targets for the year ahead.

The Killenaule, County Tipperary-native has partnered 11 winners already in the campaign, notching almost a third of her entire tally of 34 successes last season, and speaking to the Racing Post on her way to Listowel for four rides on Monday she said: "It's really cool to be top of the jockeys' championship and I'm going to enjoy it for the day or two that it's going to last!"

She added: "I'm obviously very happy with how things have started off and have been lucky in recent months but I have no real targets in terms of numbers. I'm just keen to continue riding winners."

The leading rider contributed to Willie Mullins' trainers' championship comeback at the recent Punchestown festival, steering True Self and Meri Devie to success, as well as a determined display aboard Dot Love's Dawn Shadow.
