Nick, in Bahrain for the final leg of the Turf Series, is joined by Daily Mirror journalist David Yates to reflect on racing news from around the globe. They lead with the interim suspension meted out to decorated equestrian Sir Mark Todd for his appearance in the viral TikTok that sparked social media outrage earlier in the week. They discuss the way perspectives can shift over time and consider whether the British Horseracing Authority will be able to deal with this swiftly and efficiently. They also talk about the Oisin Murphy hearing, a date for which has been set next week, the continuing fallout from the Grand national weights and looks ahead to this weekend’s racing, with a notable contribution from trainer Anthony Honeyball. JA McGrath joins from Australia to talk about the Lightning Stakes as well as the best of the Hong Kong action, while Marcus Bird updates us on the progress of the Godolphin Flying Start trainees.
