    Both the first two jockeys dropped their hands but because David England won the race (and therefore obtained the best possible placing) he wasn’t banned.
    Neil Mullholland got 28 days,is he a little harshly done as he has basically committed the same offence as England but because he didn’t win the race he gets banned.

    Just watching the replay, is there another finishing post at Wincanton that cannot be seen from those replays? ? ?

    There isn’t another post, but rather some approximation of a path which the unfortunate can sometimes mistake as the winning line. Messrs Mulholland and England’s reasoning appears to be that the low sun tricked them into mistaking the path for the line this time.

    It’s not a completely unknown occurence at Wincanton – didn’t the same happen in the Elite Hurdle earlier in the season? On that occasion I don’t think any bans were handed out, as no real or imagined change to the final finishing positions resulted.

    Correct Graysons, Dougie Costello mistook the winning post on Kings Quay, as did the rider of Chivalry.

    A rare occurrence for Mr ‘Noddies Way’ Panvert to saddle a winner but
    my congratulations to him.
