After a six-hour inquiry, the trainers were found to have been in breach of Rule 220 (II). After hearing the judgement Turner said: "I've had 20 years of abuse from him [Elsworth].

Turner said their feud was sparked by an incident when Elsworth was the key figure in Ricky Valance's training operation over 20 years ago.Reuse content
