Jockey John Egan was in hot water with the stewards at Lingfield after being found guilty of failing to ride out Athletic in the Handicap.

John Egan: Banned by Lingfield stewards

The David Evans-trained eight-year-old was the 7/2 second-favourite for the one-mile contest and passed the post third behind the impressive Polymnia (14/1).

Egan was suspended for 10 days (January 30 to February 4 and February 6 to February 9 inclusive).
