Danny Brock is due to appear in a disciplinary hearing on Wednesday into alleged violations of four rules, including passing on inside information and failing to ride horses for the highest rankings possible.

The former jockey who hasn’t ridden since receiving a 30-day ban for a string of whipping offenses in July 2021, faces an independent BHA Disciplinary Panel in a hearing expected to last three days.

The panel will consider whether Brock violated insider disclosure rules, was involved in corrupt or fraudulent racing practices, and repeatedly failed to ride horses on their merits and also to obtain the best rankings possible.

Five other people, Sean McBride, Andrew Perring, Eugene Maloney, Luke Olley and Luke Howells, face allegations of involvement in corrupt or fraudulent practices related to racing.

The case relates to nine all-weather races between December 2018 and September 2019, one at Kempton, one at Southwell, two at Lingfield and five at Chelmsford. Seven of them involved Mochalov, whom Brock rode eight times, winning once and finishing second twice.

He won the last of nine races aboard Resurrected in September 2019 and stewards inquired about the apparent improvement in the winner, who was backed to 10-1 despite not being placed in the race. his three previous starts. Her trainer Charlie McBride said the filly had benefited from the lower trip and the yard was in better shape.

Brock was fined £140 for scoring Risen in the 6f contest after stewards discovered the racer had used a whip with two rubber bands attached. It caused an uproar on social media and the jockey said he felt his career was over after receiving death threats.

An independent disciplinary committee replaced the fine with a seven-day suspension and found that the rubber bands had been left on the whip in error. Brock said they were used to hold his whips together in his kit bag. Before releasing its written reasons after the case, the BHA announced that it would review penalties for the use of modified whips.

Brock had three winners out of 38 rides in 2021 and had his best season in 2014, when he partnered with 27 winners out of 218 rides.
