Jason Weaver eased down Thaleros in the closing stages of the last race at Southwell yesterday and was fined £400 by the stewards for failing to ride out his mount to hold on to second place behind Palacegate Jo. Who's The Best was runner-up inste ad, bythree quarters of a length.

Lanfranco Dettori, who has said he will be seen less at all-weather tracks in the future, rode a treble at Southwell - the middle leg supplied by Shaft Of Light.

Lord Huntington, the winning trainer, who had followed Dettori's advice to fit the three-year-old in a visor, commented: "Dettori must be a rich young man if he can afford to miss out on mounts like that in the future."
