Racing’s regulator the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) is to bar inexperienced apprentice jockey Gina Mangan from riding rank outsider Diore Lia in Saturday’s Epsom Derby.

Diore Lia was a 1,000-1 shot for the race and Mangan has only ever ridden one winner – Roscommon in 2009.

Prize money was to be donated to Great Ormond Street’s children’s hospital.

The BHA said it had “a responsibility to place the welfare of our participants, equine and human, first”.

A statement added: “While risk can never be removed entirely, it is possible to identify factors that can increase risk, and act on them.

“While Miss Mangan has held her licence for a number of years she remains inexperienced, with only 69 rides and one winner to her name. She has never ridden at Epsom and certainly never ridden in a race on the scale and stage of the Derby, with all the unique challenges it presents.

“We believe that the decision is the correct one in the best interests of all concerned and the sport. Should the BHA have not acted and an incident have occurred, then the disappointment of one rider could have been placed in stark contrast with the potential consequences.”

‘We’re in the Derby to have a go at it’

The total purse is set to be £1.625m, the richest race ever staged in Britain, with the winner receiving £920,913 and prize money then paid down to sixth place, which will net £21,922.

Owner Richard Aylward said he would now refuse to run the horse.

He told the Racing Post: “We’ve had people donate tonight from America to the charity, all on the grounds of the horse being in the race. We’re in the Derby to have a go at it, and the BHA has been got to. They’ve changed their mind.”

There are two ways of looking at this.

On the one hand, the owner’s paid the entry fee, the run is for charity and Mangan is technically qualified for what has the look of a romantic, ‘David against Goliath’ sporting encounter.

On the other, the most famous flat race in the world is no place for an inexperienced apprentice, and she could blight the race.

The authority has decided, probably correctly, that the risk of a drama is just too high.

Unlike the Grand National, there are no jumps, but this race too is a considerable test of all involved.

The latest odds released yesterday have a horse named Always Dreaming with the best odds at 5-1. However, even though he has the best odds to win, many would say that he isn’t really a favorite to win. Always Dreaming is known to be a headstrong horse and even though he ran the best workout time of 59.6 seconds, many say he is uncontrollable when it gets into the heat of the race.

Classic Empire and Gunnevera are the next two horses in terms of betting odds at 6-1. However, it is the 4th and 5th horses in betting odds that many consider having the best overall chance of winning. Irish War Cry is sitting at 7-1 and is a very experienced horse that is poised to be in the mix coming down the final stretch on Saturday. Though it is an experienced horse with some big victories in the past, Irish War Cry is always known to produce a dud showing from time to time. So be cautious when betting on that horse.

Speaking of seasoned horses, McCraken is another 3 year old Colt that is trying to start another hot streak at Churchhill Downs this weekend. Before taking a surprising 3rd place at the Blue Grass Stakes last month, McCraken had won his first four races. According to jockey Brian Hernandez Jr., McCraken went into the Blue Grass Stakes with a little bit of a bum ankle and was at 100%. If at full health, you can definitely expect to see McCraken near the front of the pack on Saturday. If close to the lead, this horse has the kind of breakaway speed that can leave other challengers in the dust on the final straightaway.
