British racing faces crisis as super-rich Sheikh Mohammed's horses fail drugs tests

This piece of mine appears in the Daily Express.

You can read the whole article here.

You can also hear a radio interview with me on this subject, on BBC Radio Wales, here. Item starts at 1hr 22 mins into the programme.

UPDATE: Trainer Mahmood al-Zarooni has been warned off for eight years.
