Bravemansgame OUT of Aintree run after last minute shock intervention over owner issue | The Sun

BRAVEMANSGAME will NOT run at Aintree after a shock last minute intervention.

Paul Nicholls' star had been due to take his chance in tomorrow's Aintree Bowl.

But he will not be able to take part due to an ownership issue.

The horse was switched to the sole care of Bryan Dew yesterday with fellow owner John Dance under investigation by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

It was originally reported that this would enable the horse to run on Thursday.

But the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) have at the last minute ruled otherwise after receiving further information from the FCA in light of a court order.

A BHA statement read:"In light of new information, including a court order, provided to the BHA on Wednesday 12 April by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) Bravemansgame is no longer able to take part in the race and has been withdrawn.

"The BHA will continue to liaise with the FCA and other affected parties."
