Jockey Maxime Tissier has been barred from re-applying for a jockeys' license for nine months for betting on racing while holding a license in November of 2019, Racing Post reports. Tissier admitted making the bets-totalling £1,205 in a William Hill shop–and voluntarily relinquished his licence ahead of the disciplinary hearing, claiming to have misunderstood the rules around betting while holding a jockeys' license. Tissier has, as such, not been disqualified from working in racing while he serves his ban, which dates from Nov. 27, the day that Tissier handed in his license.

The French-born Tissier has notched 22 wins from 140 rides in Britain.
