The Horseracing Regulatory Authority have agreed to his application to move the suspension. It means he will be free to partner Jeremy Noseda's Araafa in the Irish 2,000 Guineas at the Curragh on Saturday and Chris Wall's Wake Up Maggie in the 1,000 Guineas the next day.

Munro looked like missing the rides as those were the original dates of the suspension given to him at Brighton on 16 May. After partnering Perfect Treasure to victory in the a maiden race, the local stewards penalised the jockey for using his whip with excessive frequency, with his arm above shoulder height and without time to respond. He will now sit out the ban on 29 and 30 May.

Rod Millman has confirmed that the Munro-partnered Sergeant Cecil will head to the Ascot Gold Cup without another run. The seven-year-old was a fine second in the Yorkshire Cup last week.

He holds an engagement in the Henry II Stakes at Sandown on 29 May but that has now been ruled out.

"We're going to train him as a real good horse now and go for the biggest races," Millman said.
