National Hunt trainer Tim Vaughan has had his licence withdrawn for a suspended six months after one of his runners tested positive for a prohibited substance.

Vaughan, who is based in Wales, has also been fined £1,000 for the breach of Rule (K)2.2. The horse in question, Bells Of Peterboro (Ire), tested positive for the corticosteroid TCA after winning the novices’ handicap chase at Chepstow on January 24, 2024. The nine-year-old has been disqualified from that race but subsequently won over fences at the same track on April 13.

The trainer’s six-month ban will only come into place in the event of a subsequent positive test for one of his horses within the next 18 months. Full written reasons will be published by the BHA’s independent disciplinary panel following the hearing on Thursday morning.
