Racing: Gallagher rides through storm

DEAN GALLAGHER said yesterday that "nothing new" emerged in Tuesday's questioning by police investigating doping and race-fixing allegations. He said he was "very disappointed" at being rebailed, so that the inquiry which has racing in thrall for eight months will drag on again until at least next January. However, he intends to carry on riding as normal, resuming at Ludlow today.

Gallagher, who was at Charing Cross police station at 11.08am on Tuesday, did not leave until 8.40pm. "I was interviewed for only 28 minutes - the rest of the time I was hanging around waiting," he said.
