The British Horseracing Authority believes the recommendations made in a new review will set out a blueprint for how its integrity team should operate in the future. Wholesale Jordan Shoes From China . The integrity review was launched last summer with the team - which was led by the BHAs director of integrity, legal and risk, Adam Brickell and included an independent regulatory director in Sir Paul Stephenson as well as a panel of leading experts from the fields of sport, regulation and racing - interviewing more than 100 individuals.Trainers, owners, jockeys - and their representative bodies - the betting public, media, legal representatives and others who have an interest in British racings integrity work were able to put forward their views and while the overall impression was favourable, some criticisms were highlighted. The BHA has identified some recurring themes and specific areas where there are opportunities for improvement, prompting a list of suggestions as to how processes and procedures may be improved.The review makes six main recommendations with the establishment of a stakeholder integrity forum, which will include licensed personnel, to act as an advisory group the first key point.Improvements to the investigation, case management and disciplinary process is the second area pinpointed in the review, with proposal of a formal investigation charter to everyone involved in an investigation, at the outset, which sets out their rights and obligations and what they can expect from the process, as well as a code of conduct.The BHA will develop a fast-track process to deal with minor or admitted offences outside of the full disciplinary process and a review of the level of penalties for minor rule breaches.The formalisation of a new integrity strategy, with the aim to do more to educate and protect the majority of participants who comply or are trying to comply with the rules along with looking at improvements to the way in which the media, racing and betting public and the sports participants are informed on what the BHA are doing to protect the integrity of the sport.The BHA also plans to work with stakeholders to review the structure, composition and processes of the Disciplinary Panel, Licensing Committee and Appeal Board to make sure that the sports participants have full confidence in them.Finally, the BHAs extension of partnerships with other organisations across the betting industry, other racing jurisdictions, other sports and regulators in order to increase access to intelligence is also recommended.A number of other smaller ideas were also proposed, including the establishment of a set of guidelines as to the acceptable time-frame within which a disciplinary panel would be expected to produce a decision and reasons following an inquiry, an annual public integrity survey and adding new senior-level resource within the integrity, legal and risk department.

From my brief time within the racing industry and from the people I have spoken to as part of this review it has become clear to me that British Racing is seen as a leader when it comes to managing sporting integrity.This is evidenced by the fact that other sports and racing jurisdictions constantly contact us for guidance on running integrity services.However, we do not have a divine right to this reputation. Hence this Review was instigated to ensure that British Racing is doing all it can to maintain and improve this reputation.Brickell was pleased to see a largely favourable overview of the BHAs work but believes constructive criticism is a valuable tool.He said: The BHA has an excellent track record of detecting and taking action to remove corruption from British horse racing.We are not complacent, and this review, far from revealing serious weaknesses in our approach, shows that we are open, transparent and committed to continuously improving in order to remain among the worlds leaders in sport integrity. It also shows we are confident enough to admit when we make mistakes and to learn from them.We believe that the resultant recommendations, which include some notable, tangible improvements and additions to our procedures and policies, will set out a blueprint for how the BHA integrity team should work with the sport to continue to set standards for others to follow.I am extremely grateful to all of those who gave up their time to take part in the review. We were, at times, challenged robustly by those individuals and it is only through being challenged in such a way that you can learn and improve.An Independent Challenge Panel was established to oversee the Review and ensure the rigour and fairness of the process and to challenge the direction of the Review and the recommendations that arose. The Panel was chaired byNick Bitel, chief executive of the London Marathon and consultant at Kerman & Co solicitors, chaired the challenge panel.He was pleased the BHA admitted its failings in some previous cases, including those of trainers Jim Boyle and Kate Walton, who were involved in investigations which took long periods of time to be resolveed.He said: The challenge panel considers that the review was thorough and carried out properly in accordance with its remit, and reflects a serious and constructive approach by the BHA to achieving the objectives of the review.While we felt that the initial scope and terms of reference were too narrow, we are pleased that, at our request, the BHA widened the review to include some aspects of its disciplinary structure, and that based on the results, has now agreed to a further, separate review of the structure, composition and processes of the Disciplinary Board and Appeal Panel.The Panel applauds the willingness of the BHA to recognise and apologise for past failings, both generally and in the specific case studies of Jim Boyle and Kate Walton included within the review.Paul Struthers, chief executive of the Professional Jockeys Association, welcomed the reviews recommendations.He said: We are pleased that any concerns that this could be a case of the BHA marking its own homework have proved unfounded.The review acknowledges a number of areas for improvement and the correctly offered apologies to Kate Walton and Jim Boyle further demonstrate the change in tone and approach that has been increasingly seen under Nick Rusts tenure.We welcome the review and recommendations and the review team, led by Adam, should be applauded for their work.It is of course vital these recommendations are fully implemented and that outstanding concerns around disciplinary panel processes are addressed.The PJA fully supports a robust integrity framework but this has to be fair and transparent. This review and recommendations, once implemented, should help to ensure this and repair the confidence that had otherwise been lost.Rupert Arnold, chief executive of the National Trainers Federation (NTF), added: We are pleased that the review acknowledges that there have been failings in the investigatory and disciplinary processes.We would especially point to the recommendation to create an investigation charter and code of conduct for disciplinary cases. Defendants must be treated properly and understand how the process will develop.We also welcome the other recommendations including an emphasis on protection and education and alternative methods of dealing with minor offences as well as exploring the provision of pro bono legal advice for disciplinary hearings.

A year ago, as newly appointed general manager Masai Ujiri bided his time and sat out of a lacklustre 2013 draft, this scenario seemed highly improbable. The Raptors, like every other team in the association, had at least one eye on this years rookie crop, one of the most highly touted and eagerly anticipated ever to enter the league. The rest is history. Ujiris team overachieved in his first year on the job and as a result, they will miss out on this drafts biggest prizes: hometown phenom Andrew Wiggins, NBA ready star Jabari Parker, the intriguing Australian Dante Exum and, depending on your aversion to risk, Joel Embiid. Even so, their reality doesnt sound half bad. Instead, they find themselves nearing the end of an extensive pre-draft process, intending to add a complimentary piece to their winning program. This is not a bad year to be in such an advantageous position. Although Ujiri has called this draft "a little overrated", its one with solid depth specifically at the wing positions, one of Torontos most glaring needs heading into next season. Provided the Raptors hang onto the 20th overall pick, as expected, they will hope to hit a home run although they wont necessarily be swinging for one. Their philosophy throughout this process, one that has seen them audition roughly 60 prospects over the last four weeks, has been consistent with Ujiris management style. As always, hes ambitious albeit realistic and well prepared while knowing full well hell have to roll with the punches. And on draft day, specifically what figures to be one of the most eventful and unpredictable in recent memory, there will be more than a few punches to roll with. "Its a huge process for us," Ujiri acknowledged just ahead of the teams final pre-draft workout Monday afternoon. "It just builds and builds and builds. Hopefully by [Tuesday], Wednesday morning, well have gathered all the information that we have." "And theyll mess it up with a trade or something," he joked. Indeed, the Raptors are at the mercy of the 14 teams that occupy the 19 slots ahead of them. So much of this is a poker game, only the guys youre playing with, 29 other executives, are not sitting across from you at the table. The "homework" that Ujiri references is far more involved than just player scouting but also anticipating the motives of every other team, which will ultimately determine who is available to them at 20. Thats the biggest challenge. Its feasible to look at the Bulls, slated to draft 19th overall, and their roster to determine who or what they might be targeting with their pick. Accounting for a possible trade, an unknown team with unknown interests moving up, is not so simple. So Ujiri and his staff have put together their wish list. On Monday, it was 10 players long, as the draft approaches it figures to be cut in half. Theyll weigh the pros and cons, ranking each prospect while keeping a keen eye on the ones that could fall to them unexpectedly. "Our mindset is we get the best guy, best talent available and we try to do our homework as much as we can," Ujiri said. "Weve done our homework on the top guys because you never know what can come up in the next couple days. Our job is to do our homework. We really have to be prepared for this draft." Among the 60 or so prospects the Raptors have brought in over 11 workout sessions this month, theyve seen about a dozen that figure to be selected somewhere between the middle of the first round to the beginning of the second. Here are a few names that may interest them should they be available at No. 20. Tyler Ennis - PG, Syracuse, freshmanLast years stats: 12.9 points, 5.5 assists, 3.4 rebounds, 2.1 steals When the Brampton-native auditioned in Toronto as part of the Raptors first workout crop this spring, it seemed like a pipe dream to think he could fall to his hometown team at 20. At worst, Ennis was believed to be a lock to go in the top half of the opening round. Since then, his stock seems to have dropped, a likely result of fellow prospect point guards Elfrid Payton and Shabazz Napier rising up draft boards. The correlation is understandable, though its hardly an indictment on the NBA player Ennis could become. The qualities that make thhe 19-year-old such an intriguing prospect wont necessarily jump out at you in a workout. Cheap Jordans For Sale. While Payton and Napier are probably quicker, flashier and more athletic players, Ennis is still considered to be the best pure point guard in the draft. Hes a natural leader with a nose for the game, something that is evident on the court in live action more so than in drills or smaller scrimmages. He has a fan in the Raptors, who have been tracking his progress for a long time. "From what Ive seen, hes very poised, he plays very calm and thats the first thing I noticed," Ujiri said ahead of his workout in Toronto. "[He] can get his teammates involved and then when he needs to score, he takes care of business which I think is a good trait to have as an NBA player." The Raptors top priority is re-signing Kyle Lowry, they also have to make a decision regarding Greivis Vasquez, a restricted free agent, but Ujiri has made it clear he intends to select the best player available, regardless of position. If Ennis name is on the board, Canadian angle aside, they would have a hard time passing up on him as Lowrys back-up or possible insurance should the incumbent go elsewhere. K.J. McDaniels - SF, Clemson, juniorLast years stats: 17.1 points, 7.1 rebounds, 2.8 blocks, 1.1 steals Given his elite athleticism and upside as a lockdown defender at one of the NBAs most crucial positions, its hard to fathom why McDaniels is routinely overlooked in this draft. With each year at Clemson, accompanied by increased playing time, McDaniels has expanded his game and appears to be well on his way to becoming an impact rotation player in NBA. Questions surround his offensive versatility, efficiency and whether or not hell be able to knock down the NBA three with consistency. Still, with his athletic gifts, size and commitment to defence, he would be a welcomed addition to Dwane Caseys roster. "I think hes a dynamic player," Dan Tolzman, the Raptors director of scouting, said earlier this month. "Its hard to see how good he is in this [workout] setting because in five-on-five, with help-side defense, thats where he flourishes. I think with the way the spacing in the NBA is, rotations and defensive principles are so important. A guy like him, he can fly in from the wing and get blocks off the board like nothing. I think plays like that, thats what gets guys time in the NBA." Kyle Anderson - G/SF, UCLA, sophomoreLast years stats: 14.6 points, 8.8 rebounds, 6.5 assists Not only is Anderson the most unique player in this draft but hes poised to become one of the most unique in the association. The 20-year-old wont blow you away with speed or athleticism but he has a tremendous command of and vision for the game, a point guard in a 6-foot-8 body with a massive 7-foot-2 wingspan. The question is, where will he play in the league and what position will he guard? Although, in todays position-less NBA, it doesnt seem to matter all that much. "I think he can definitely play the point, I think its the defending the point thats the thing," Tolzman said of Anderson. "So many point guards are scoring guys now. So that means you have six-foot, 6-1, 6-2 guys on the floor who are just there to score and then youd have a guy like Kyle who is on the floor to do the actual running the team at the point. And on offence that sets up fine but then on defence you can just switch men." Outside of their point guards, the Raptors dont have anyone that can handle the ball and initiate the offence in a pinch. Although it may be more of a challenge to fit Anderson into your system than, say an athlete like McDaniels, there is undeniable value in having a player that combines size, versatility and court vision, something that made Boris Diaw such an integral part of the Spurs championship run. "Hes the definition of versatility, really," Tolzman added. "I mean that guy, he can play just about every position on the floor. Just the pace that he plays at and the level of IQ that he plays with and the composure that he shows when handling the ball its at NBA level, no question. Hes like a throw-back player to the fullest. Hes an old school-type guy."
