Roger Hoad had his licence withdrawn for just over a year yesterday for misleading Jockey Club officials over a positive test returned by a stable runner.

Elburg, from Hoad's Sussex yard, tested positive for a prohibitive substance after winning at Pontefract last year. The 52-year-old trainer was fined pounds 1,000 and lost his licence to train from next Wednesday.
