But in doing so racing's rev enue is bound to- suffer. Lord Wakeham, chairman of the British Horseracing Board, described it is a "sad day for British racing." "The annual saving to the three companies of up to 5m represents a reduction in central finance which the underfunded racing industry can ill-afford," he said. "The additional levy which would have accrued if they had stayed in the company scheme would have made a major contribution to the further enhancement of the product on which the betting industry and their customers are so reliant. "It is perhaps worth speculating on what their customers, the punters, will think of the decision.

Roger Withers, managing director of Coral, countered by saying: "Despite considerable efforts by the BHB and others, the much needed increase in horserace betting has not materialised, a point which seems to have been missed in the BHB response." Neverthless, the stark fact remains that bookmakers will be paying less towards the raw product beamed into their shops, while fruit machines and numbers betting continue to boost profits. Ladbrokes and Hill's cut Imperial Call to 10-1 and 12-1, respectively, for the Cheltenham Gold Cup after the gelding finished a creditable nine lengths second to Dorans Pride at Clonmel yesterday. Richard Dunwoody made the running on Dorans Pride, a 2-1 on chance, and although they won well in the end. Imperial Call looked dangerous as they swung for home. "I'm thrilled with him," reported jockey Conor O'Dwyer. Sport in brief Lorry strike diverts Schumacher to London ICHAEL Schumacher's appearance before For mula One's governing body, the FLA, has been moved to London because of the French lorry drivers' strike.
