After what feels like forever jokes, Bryony Frost and Robbie Dunne are finally about to reveal it all.

Frost has made a series of egregious allegations against Dunne, including claims that he marched naked in front of her – claims he denies.

A hearing into allegations that Dunne bullied Frost is underway at the posh BHA headquarters this morning in Holborn, London, and a lot is at stake.

No titles or bonuses but potentially lengthy bans, large fines and a need for a wake-up call for the weight room.

The BHA has scheduled six days to proceed with the proceedings. Three this week and three more – if needed – next week.

Dunne, 36 years old, is charged by BHA again in April with ‘behavior that damages the good reputation of riding and acts in a violent or improper manner’.

In a word, Frost, 26, has accused him of bullying since 2017 when she was a conditional.

It can be said that there is no love lost between them.

Dunne's alleged conduct will be the biggest story in the racing world during the hearing

Most of the allegations became known after part of a 120-page BHA dossier was leaked to the Sunday Times.

We already know Dunne denies the allegations.

But what we don’t know is whether he’s denying they ever happened or admitting they did happen but believes it’s been exaggerated – and if he feels he’s been seen as a scapegoat for sports problems.

In interviews with BHA, Frost said Dunne swore, threatened and yelled at her many times, going back many years.

Anger flared as Dunne believed Frost had severed her on the track with a mid-race move that was to spell disaster for Dunne as he fell and his horse had to be put down at Southwell. .

It was one of three days BHA officials agitated, others at Stratford and Uttoxeter between February and September last year.

ASK FROST DUNNE TO WALK IN front of her

Frost said in interviews with the BHA that Dunne calls her a *** and a whore, and claims Dunne paraded naked in front of her in the dressing room.

Frost, one of the biggest names in diving, has kept quiet since the allegations became public.

She continued to ride, Team up with Frodon for a great win in the Ladbrokes Championship Race in Ireland, but tried to stay out of the public eye more than usual.

For the most part she has ridden just for her main supporters – Paul Nicholls, Lucy Wadham and her old man Jimmy Frost.

The former chief escaped after a mysterious escape

BOTH Dunne and Frost are expected to attend some hearings but will likely be in London only when required.

Surprisingly, neither of the riders were cross-tested.

The supervisory board will be headed by experienced judge Brian Barker, who will sit alongside James O’Mahony and Alison Royston.

Ironically, the Professional Horsemen’s Association will participate, ironically after calling for the hearing to be reconsidered following the leaked report.

They will answer questions around the new code of conduct and facilities for female riders.

And former BHA Chief Integrity Officer Chris Nash will be grilled.

He ran the investigation before leaving mysteriously and has not been heard of or seen since.

Dunne was injured in July and was back in the saddle at Ludlow earlier this month.

He fought against Frost that day and get the better of her in a suspenseg ends.

There was never a race in Ludlow received a lot of attention.

He was busy with a lot of yards but happily supported their man despite the accusations.

It is likely that he will rely on these coaches to voice their support in the coming days.

It will be interesting if any driver, valet or coach finally speaks out about the alleged incidents.

The BHA struggled to get anyone to continue as their initial investigation unfolded.

TEST OF FELLOW JOCKEYS CAN PROVIDE CRUCIAL

But you can bet your lowest dollar that the team of lawyers for Frost and the BHA have worked hard to change that now the hearing will proceed.

Any riders coming forward in favor of Frost could be crucial in proving her case and could spell trouble for Irishman Dunne.

The hearing could be a case, he said, and a field day for any attorney if, shamelessly, no one makes both sides.

If found to be in violation, Dunne could be banned for up to three years and fined up to £15,000.

However, fines of £2,000 or a three-month suspension are recommended in the BHA rules.

Both jockey players will be relieved to finally get this done, but for either Dunne or Frost, the result will be a crushing blow.

What is clear is that, either way, there will be no winners in this.
