Still no Hamdan Oaks decision

first_imgLeading owner Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum will wait until later in the week before deciding whether to let star fillies Taghrooda and Tarfasha lock horns for a second time in Saturday’s Darley Irish Oaks at the Curragh. The John Gosden-trained Taghrooda got the better of Dermot Weld’s Tarfasha in the Investec Oaks at Epsom in early June and both are among 15 horses still in contention for this weekend’s Group One feature. Asked whether both could run, Sheikh Hamdan’s racing manager Angus Gold said: “I honestly don’t know and as is always the case, those decisions will be made by Sheikh Hamdan. Both fillies have been left in at this stage and we’ll make a decision on running plans later in the week. Both trainers are keen to run and tell me their fillies are in good form, so we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.” Press Associationcenter_img Aidan O’Brien has saddled three previous Irish Oaks winners and is mob-handed this time around, with Ribblesdale Stakes heroine Bracelet joined by five stable companions in Beyond Brilliance, Just Gorgeous, Marvellous, Palace and Tapestry. Taghrooda is not the only potential British challenger, with Luca Cumani’s Volume, the Mick Channon-trained Nancy From Nairobi and Richard Hannon’s Lustrous also in contention. Weld has also left in Vote Often. last_img read more

HS Group Media Forum Raises the Alarm over Nigeria’s Rio2016 Participation

first_imgBy Duro IkhazuagbeNigeria’s poor preparations for major competitions especially for the fast approaching 2016 Rio Olympics has become a source of concern to leading sports editors and managers of the country’s newspapers and electronic organs as well as former Olympians.The forum therefore called for the restructuring of Sports in Nigeria which should involve deliberate plans to revive School Sports and getting passionate and credible persons with ideas to run the sports federations.“The forum called for deliberate plans to incorporate funding from the private sector with attractive waivers to get corporate organisations more involved in sports, while the government should ensure conducive environment through the provision and maintenance of sports facilities.It also noted with sadness that “there is an unprecedentedly high turnover of sports ministers in Nigeria, which in itself is an indication of having wrong people in charge of this very important area of our national life.”The forum therefore “called on President Muhammadu Buhari should forthwith ensure that only knowledgeable person is made to head the Sports Ministry.”Special Guest speakers at the gathering include Nigeria’s greatest quarter-miler of all time and Olympic silver medalist, Falilat Ogunkoya-Omotayo and Sydney 2000 Olympic 4x400m relay gold medalist,EnefiokUdo-Obong  and the Chairman/CEO HS Media Group, Mr. Taye Ige, who was the chief host.A communiqué issued at the end of an Editors’ Forum hosted by HS Media Group at its corporate headquarters in Oregun, Lagos last Friday, noted that the non-preparation was a reflection of an almost total collapse of sports structure in Nigeria.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Bookmakers remain exempt from latest money laundering rules

first_img Mr Green to pay £3m for failures in gambling harm and money laundering prevention February 27, 2020 David Clifton: Licensing Expert – Consensus cannot be the hardest word February 21, 2020 Share Related Articles StumbleUpon David Clifton: Licensing Expert – Gambling faces a pivotal moment March 31, 2020 Share Submit Bookmakers already celebrating a successful start to Cheltenham week will have further cause for celebration with the news that the betting industry will continue to be exempt from European money laundering rules.There was a real danger that the Fourth EU Money Laundering Directive would encompass bookmakers given the classification of gambling as a high risk area for money laundering. At last year’s Betting on Sports conference, one compliance manager described it as introducing the biggest change the retail betting sector will have ever experienced.However it seems that the Gambling Commission’s recent work on money laundering and the tightening up of its Licence Conditions and Codes of Practice (LCCP) has persuaded the Treasury that areas of the gambling industry are suitably policed in this area already and that its latest National Risk Assessment (NRA) views bookmaking as low-risk and as such exempt from the 4MLD.Licensing expert David Clifton of Clifton Davies commented: “In what is a surprising decision to many – me included – the Government has made a policy decision to exempt all gambling service providers other than remote and non-remote casino operators from the requirements of 4MLD.“In light of comments contained in the September 2015 first National AML Risk Assessment and repeated concerns expressed by the Gambling Commission, betting operators have good reason to be mightily relieved that they will continue to fall outside the ambit of the Money Laundering Regulations, but they will need to remember that they remain bound by both the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (breach of which could constitute a criminal offence) and the Gambling Act 2005 licensing objective to prevent gambling from being a source of crime or disorder.”Things can still change in the future though. In its consultation document on money laundering and terrorist financing (ML/TF), the Treasury warned: “The government will regularly review its position on the ML/TF risk that gambling providers present. Moreover, the Gambling Commission will continue to evaluate ML/TF risk across all gambling sectors, and this information will contribute to and influence future NRAs.“Importantly, the government recognises that the risk levels attributed to a particular gambling sector are not static and will vary over time. As a result, if a gambling sector can no longer be deemed low risk (including where the sector fails to adequately manage the ML/TF risks) then the exemption could not be maintained. It is therefore imperative that gambling providers comply with the requirements of the Gambling Act and the strengthened LCCP to ensure that they have effective policies, procedures and controls in place to mitigate ML/TF risks, and continue to raise standards.”last_img read more
