Michael Kinane has, as expected, launched an appeal against a suspension that threatens to rule him out of the ride on Galileo in the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes at Ascot on Saturday week.
The ban, which rules him out of action next Friday and Saturday, was handed down when he was found guilty of careless riding on the Aidan O'Brien-trained Sophisticat at Leopardstown on Wednesday.
However, Kinane may not have his hearing until less than 24 hours before the suspension is due to start.
