Jockey Lizzie Kelly says a mooted 4lb weight allowance for female riders is not a good for women.

If implemented, women jockeys will be given an extra 4lb allowance over men with the aim to create more female winners.

However, Kelly told BBC Radio 5 that the move would not only cause women to win artificially, but also encourage unhealthy and unsafe weight for female riders.
