Tim Jarvis has been granted a licence to train at Twyford, near Bicester, by the British Horseracing Authority.

Jarvis, son of Alan Jarvis, had seen his application turned down last month by the BHA, but exercised his right for a reassessment.

In March, Jarvis senior, whose career spanned more than 40 years, lost his permission to train under the BHA’s ‘fit and proper person’ rule relating to a debt owed to Doncaster Bloodstock Sales Ltd.

A statement from the Licensing Committee read: “The committee has decided that on all the evidence now before it, that Mr Timothy Jarvis is a suitable person to hold a trainer’s licence.”

However, a number of conditions were imposed on the issue of Jarvis jnr’s licence.

These include that Alan Jarvis must not represent his son on the racecourse or to owners, act as a spokesperson to the media or wider racing industry, or be granted access to any BHA-approved yard for which Tim Jarvis holds a licence.
