Racing’s regulator the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) is to bar inexperienced apprentice jockey Gina Mangan from riding rank outsider Diore Lia in Saturday’s Epsom Derby.

Diore Lia was a 1,000-1 shot for the race and Mangan has only ever ridden one winner – Roscommon in 2009.

Prize money was to be donated to Great Ormond Street’s children’s hospital.
