The punishment was imposed for Ffrench's riding of Marchman in the Hove Claiming Stakes. Marchman, a 10-1 shot, was first past the post by an eased-down length and a half from Simon Whitworth's mount, Roman Reel.
But the latter had been given a hefty bump over two furlongs from home and the placings of the first two were reversed.
Earlier, Ffrench had scored on the 10-year-old Sooty Tern. Milton Bradley, his trainer, said: ''He's now won over pounds 83,000 and he cost me only 3,000 guineas.''
