Resolution in sight with jockey Bryony Frost's 'bullying' case

Torbay Weekly

Bryony Frost's 'bullying and harassment' case against rival jockey Robbie Dunne may finally be approaching resolution as Dunne is set to appear before a disciplinary inquiry next Tuesday.

The affair has hung over the popular Frost, from Buckfastleigh, and the new National Hunt season for months.

Frost, 26, has not allowed the pressure surrounding the case to affect her great form - two recent 'doubles' took her to 27 wins, at a strike-rate of nearly 25 per cent.

She has also turned down the chance to appeal against a controversial two-day riding ban, even though all the connections behind her recent big win aboard Yala Enki at Cheltenham urged her to do it.

Frost was suspended for alleged 'careless riding' more than two fences out, a decision described as 'totally ridiculous' by the horse's owner and his trainer Paul Nicholls.
