A British horse trainer, who was handed a record 12-year ban from the sport, has seemingly set up his own tipping service on TikTok and boldly declared, "I want payback."
A Video on TikTok Appears to Promote New Tipping Service by Banned Trainer McNally
A series of three videos have emerged on TikTok under the account name 'The McNally Line'.
In one of the videos, the banned trainer McNally, who was previously banned for a number of 'very serious' breaches, states confidently, "My licence might be gone but I still have a lot of contacts in the game. Jumps racing is starting now in a couple of weeks, and that's my forte, so I'm hoping to be able to share some information with the public. Together, we'll bash the bookies."
Since their upload, these clips have already amassed nearly 60,000 views in just two days.
McNally Banned over Horse Form Improvement and Gambling Scandals
McNally was slammed with his record 12-year ban following a thorough investigation into the remarkable improvement in form of some of his horses, which led to significant gambling scandals.
One of the notable examples is The Jam Man, who completely dominated the 2020 Troytown Chase after being heavily backed off the boards. Another case points to Dreal Deal, whose odds dramatically dropped from 20-1 to 6-4 before winning at Navan in the same year, sparking an inquiry into betting patterns.
Expressing his frustration after the win, McNally criticized the state of the betting game, claiming that it only takes £100 to shift a horse's odds from 20-1 to 12-1.
In addition to passing on inside information, McNally was found guilty of numerous rule breaches and fined over £50,000.
Accusations of Manipulation and a 'Farcical' Race
One of the most serious charges leveled at McNally involved him allegedly orchestrating the manipulation of official handicap ratings for two horses, including All Class.
This horse won what was deemed a 'farcical' race at Punchestown in 2021, having seen its odds plummet from around 20-1 to 6-4, winning by an astounding 23 lengths.
Despite losing his appeal against the 12-year ban, McNally did manage a small victory as the final four years of his disqualification will be suspended.
