ADRIAN MAGUIRE will decide today whether to appeal against a 10- day ban handed out by the stewards at Newton Abbot on Saturday night.

Maguire, who has suffered more than his fair share of setbacks in recent years, on Saturday had his first rides since breaking his left collar- bone at Ascot in April. But after partnering Afon Alwen to a 10-11 success in the opening race, the night turned sour when Maguire was found guilty of causing intentional interference aboard the unplaced Synieyourmissed in the handicap chase.

The Aga Khan's Zainta got up in the last stride for a short-head win over Abbatiale in yesterday's Prix de Diane.

Victory Gallop, runner up in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, denied Real Quiet the US Triple Crown by a nose in Saturday's Belmont Stakes.
