JOHN REID received a two- day suspension for his use of the whip when winning on Vanborough Lad at Bath yesterday. Reid was found to have used his stick with unreasonable frequency and to have infringed the guidelines on using the whip in the forehand position.

Russell Price, who partnered the runner-up, Hoochiecoochie Man, received the same punishment for using his whip with unreasonable force. Both jockeys are suspended for 25-26 May.

Reid won the Irish 2,000 Guineas aboard Turtle Island on Sunday.
