Business before pleasure for Royal Dutch Shell’s horseracing-mad executive Steve Harman.

Such is Harman’s dedication to leading the oil giant’s downstream joint ventures that he has told the British Horseracing Authority — which wants him to replace NewSmith founder Paul Roy as chairman — that it will have to wait until July.

Explains Harman: “Existing commitments over the coming months will preclude me from being able to devote sufficient time and energy to the role.”

Under-fire Shell chief Peter Voser — grappling with the US government’s frosty feedback on Shell’s Arctic plans and the $2.3bn (£1.5bn) IOU to Iran — will be delighted he has Harman’s full attention.
