Findlay vows to 'keep himself in check' to avoid another bust-up

Harry Findlay has vowed not to initiate another public confrontation with British Horseracing Authority chiefs after Thursday's unsightly altercation at Doncaster.

Findlay challenged BHA chief executive Nic Coward on Town Moor as he continues to make known his dissatisfaction at the handling of his disciplinary inquiry earlier this year.

The owner was initially banned for six months in connection with laying his own horse, Gullible Gordon, on two occasions but that suspension was later changed to a fine on appeal.

After his altercation with Coward, Findlay planned to continue the argument should he see Coward or BHA chairman Paul Roy at the track today.

However, he changed his mind and will now wait to a later date to further air his grievances.

"I'll be keeping myself in check. I'll watch Black Moth in the first and then I'll be going home," he said.

Sariska is reported to be in fine form as she bids to redeem her tarnished reputation in the Qatar Prix Vermeille at Longchamp on Sunday.

Her trainer Michael Bell said: "She's been in great form at home, working well and she's got her ground, so ultimately it's up to her now.

King Torus is on course for the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere at Longchamp next month. Richard Hannon's two-year-old colt goes for Group One glory after Group Two wins in Newmarket's Superlative Stakes and the Vintage Stakes at Glorious Goodwood.

"He'll go to France for the race on Arc weekend," said Barry Simpson, racing manager to owner Robert Ogden.

"That is his objective. We'll see what he gets up to there."
