The three men involved with convicted jockey Christopher Munce have been banned from the city's two racecourses by the Jockey Club.


A Jockey Club spokesman said the trio had been 'excluded' by the stewards who used powers granted to them under the club's Rules of Racing. Two of the men, Andy Lau Wai-ching and Kamal Govindram Daswaney, are Jockey Club members.


The spokesman said the membership's disciplinary committee would inquire into their conduct with a view to suspend or expel them. No time has been set for this hearing. A District Court judge on Thursday jailed the jockey for 21/2 years on charges of conspiracy to accept an advantage. The court was told Munce, 37, an Australian, had received nearly HK$1 million from a businessman in return for giving tips on races.


Munce had denied he conspired with Lau, Daswaney and Daswaney's nephew, Dinesh Kumar Daswani, in the betting deal.


Daswani and Daswaney gave evidence under immunity.
