Winks handed seven-day ban
Ryan Winks has been hit with a seven-day ban for a whip offence on Fresh By Nature in the #localandproud Mares' Handicap Hurdle at Uttoxeter.
The conditional jockey was found by the stewards to have used his whip above the permitted level as the Harriet Bethell-trained six-year-old took third place behind Deja Bougg.
He is suspended from May 20-26.
Adam Wedge got two days (May 20 and 21) for using his whip too much on fourth-home Blue Rhythm in division one of the Sentinel May Un Mar Lady Novices' Handicap Hurdle.
