Jason Weaver is facing eight days on the sidelines after being hit yesterday with his second whip ban in a week.

Weaver was in trouble after riding Fizzed to victory in the Westwood Maiden Stakes at Beverley. The stewards decided he had used his whip with excessive force.

Weaver was punished with a four-day ban which puts him out of action on 23 & 25-27August. Weaver received a four-day suspension for his riding of Princely Heir in the Phoenix Heinz 57 Stakes at Leopardstown last Sunday which means he will be on the sidelines for eight consecutive racing days from Tuesday.
