Dermot Browne, the former trainer and jockey, has been summoned to appear before the Jockey Club's Disciplinary Committee tomorrow, on a number of charges after a two-year investigation by the Club's security department. Browne lost his licence to train in October 1990 because the number of horses in his yard failed to reach the statutory minimum.

The committee will consider whether the 30-year-old, who was the champion amateur jump jockey when riding for the Monica Dickinson stable, has committed breaches of the rules covering the giving of information to a bookmaker in return for monetary reward; over the running and riding of Dashing Prince, whom he trained - when it finished unplaced in a maiden at Leicester in June 1990; and concerning the vaccination record of another horse in his care in 1990.
