It began almost a fortnight ago at Tramore, when Russell punched Kings Dolly for misbehaving before a handicap hurdle, the mare having approached the “show” hurdle at such speed that she almost tumbled over it.The Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals broke its silence on the affair, saying it was “appalled by the incident” and called for the penalty to be reviewed, just hours before the Turf Club announced it would do so. “This behaviour is completely unacceptable and the caution imposed … is unduly lenient,” the ISPCA statement said.It was “disappointing”, the ISPCA added, that Russell had been punished for bringing the sport into disrepute rather than for hitting Kings Dolly. “The same jockey was banned for 14 days last year for being rude to a steward. It is alarming that the Irish Turf Club treated that breach of its rules more seriously than hitting a horse.“We call on the Irish Turf Club to review the sanction imposed and to consider banning the jockey from racing for a period of time to send out a message to other jockeys that this type of behaviour will not be tolerated within the horse racing industry and that the welfare of horses must be absolutely paramount.”The ISPCA statement concluded that it had no powers to investigate the incident itself or take any direct action against Russell. It said it had received “a number of enquiries” from the public in Ireland and elsewhere, asking it to do just that.There is no date yet for the rehearing of the case against Russell. While the Turf Club will surely want to bring the matter to an expeditious conclusion, it took a full week to organise the first hearing after footage of Russell hitting Kings Dolly emerged online. Since you’re here… Share on WhatsApp Share on LinkedIn Animal welfare Turf Club officials declined to discuss what would be an appropriate penalty for Russell’s offence. The jockey Shane Foley was banned for seven days, reduced to five on appeal, for striking his mount with his whip before a race last month and that case is seen as the closest available precedent.While footage of the incident is not entirely clear, Russell admitted at the hearing on Saturday that he had hit Kings Dolly. The panel’s report said he “used his fist to hit the horse on the soft part of her neck, just behind the head, to make the horse concentrate” and added: “He had his stick in his hand when he did this. He said he would have slapped the horse if he hadn’t had the stick in his hand. He accepted his actions were inappropriate.”Meanwhile, Daban is to be transferred to an equine hospital in Newmarket this week as the filly continues to recover from the fractured pelvis that caused her to be pulled up at an early stage of Friday’s City Of York Stakes. “It’s not as bad as it was first thought, as it was not near an artery,” said Bruce Raymond, racing manager to her owner.“She won’t be running again this season but it is too soon to say if she will ever run again. If she is ready to run next year, that will be up to John [Gosden] to decide and how she recovers over the winter.”Thursday’s tips, by Chris CookChelmsford1.20 Austrian School 1.50 Honiara 2.20 Dukinta (nap) 2.50 Aljuljalah 3.20 Cainhoe Star 3.50 Master Of Heaven 4.20 Chilli Jam 4.50 MobbhijMusselburgh1.30 Brandy Station 2.00 Hamba Moyo 2.30 Claramara 3.00 Trooper’s Gold 3.30 Erinyes 4.00 Peach Melba 4.35 Quiet Moment 5.10 See VermontBath1.40 Just For The Craic 2.10 Tobouggaloo 2.40 Affair 3.10 Dandilion 3.40 Paint 4.10 Chalky 4.40 JaganorySedgefield4.30 Ange Des Malberaux 5.00 Man Look 5.30 Ashoka 6.00 Almost Gemini 6.30 Highbury High 7.00 Shining Romeo 7.30 ShrublandWolverhampton5.40 Wolfcatcherjack 6.10 Military Parade 6.40 Just For Fun 7.10 Top Of The Bank (nb) 7.40 Moxy Mares 8.10 Envisaging 8.40 Robbie Roo Roo Share on Facebook Horse racing tips The Recap: sign up for the best of the Guardian’s sport coverage Davy Russell is once more at risk of a ban for punching his horse, after the Irish Turf Club’s decision to reopen the case against him. The jockey was given a caution after three members of the Turf Club heard the evidence against him on Saturday but senior officials have since held an internal review, decided a caution was “unduly lenient” and referred the matter on to the appeals board.
