The Jockey Club yesterday refused to rush its investigation into the "jockeys' revolt" which led to the abandonment of Wednesday's Haydock card. Twenty-one jockeys refused to ride after the first race at the track which they deemed unsafe.

John Maxse, a Club spokesman, said: "There is no time restriction on our investigation, such as when a jockey is appealing against a ban. We have received a copy of the report from the Haydock stewards but there are a couple of other items of information we need."
