- Richard Johnson, four-time champions jockey, will appear before the panel
Richard Johnson is expected to give evidence when the BHA disciplinary panel hearing into allegations that Bryony Frost was bullied and harassed by fellow rider Robbie Dunne reconvenes on Tuesday.
Four-time champion jump jockey Johnson is likely to be one of a number of Weighing Room figures who will appear before the panel as Dunne’s legal team begin their defence.
The hearing has raised questions about the culture within the Weighing Room, with Frost saying she believed that fellow female jockeys had not supported her because it could damage their careers.

Frost has alleged that Dunne threatened to hurt her and put her through the wing of a fence to teach her a lesson after blaming her for the fatal fall of his mount Cillian’s Well at Southwell in September 2020.
However, concerns over Frost’s riding style among her colleagues have been raised and look likely to be further aired this week.
