Ash Park, ridden by Sam Coltherd wins at Musselburgh in March 2017

Just 10 days after winning a first Aintree Grand National in nearly 40 years with One For Arthur, Scottish racing could lose one of its five racecourses.

The track at Musselburgh is only operating on a temporary licence from the British Horseracing Authority (BHA), which has expressed dissatisfaction with the course’s “governance”.

The sport’s regulator will not give exact details of its concerns, however sources have said it is awaiting required business and budget plans.
