Three weeks of purgatory await Robert Winston, Robbie Fitzpatrick and two former jockeys, Fran Ferris and Luke Fletcher, before the Horseracing Regulatory Authority announces a verdict on the corruption inquiry that concluded yesterday. The hearing, which lasted eight and a half days, also involved five unlicensed individuals, including a former bookmaker.

A statement from the HRA read: "Given the serious nature of the charges, the volume and complexity of the evidence and the availability of the various legal representatives, the hearing will reconvene the week commencing Monday, 12 February, when the panel will formally deliver their verdict and publish the result."
