Jamie Moore was handed a 10-day suspension for dropping his hands and losing third place on Just Midas in the Gerrard Wealth Management Selling Hurdle at Fontwell yesterday.

Riding for Martin Pipe, the conditional jockey was caught close home and beaten three-quarters of a length by Grand Prompt after easing down prematurely in the 10-runner contest. The race went to Moore's father, Gary, who trained the winner Lightning Star, who was ridden by Tony McCoy.

Moore will be banned on from 6 to 10 June inclusive, then 12, 13, 15, 16 and 20 June. But the jockey also rode a treble, partnering Wayward Melody and Tioman to complete a treble for his father, and Shannon Water's for Pipe.

The Horse Racing Channel announced it would start broadcasting on Saturday, 13 days before its rival At The Races. The channel, under the new brand name of Racing UK, will cover races from Kempton, Doncaster, Musselburgh and Cartmel.
