All of the individuals except the jockeys are alternatively/additionally charged with another breach in that it is alleged "they caused the jockey in the race to act by communicating to him directly or indirectly, at his request and for material reward, gift, favour or benefit in kind, Inside Information in relation to the named horse".
Each of the jockeys is additionally charged with a different breach in that it is alleged "they communicated directly or indirectly to one or more betting exchange account holders, for material reward, gift, favour or benefit in kind, information relating to the prospects of the named horse".
