Police yesterday arrested another man in connection with their investigation into allegations of race-fixing and the doping of horses.

This brings the number of arrests to seven, three of which have been the jockeys Jamie Osborne, Dean Gallagher and Leighton Aspell. None of those arrested have been charged with any offence but the original six arrested men are on police bail until 29 April.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said of the fresh arrest: "His premises were searched and he is under arrest at a Hampshire police station."

Jamie Osborne is to break his silence on BBC television today. Osborne will be interviewed after the 1.15 race at Newbury.
