Robert Havlin considers the potentials of appealing against the duration of the 13-day whip ban initiated by stewards at Windsor.
The 45-year-old whipped above the permitted limit of seven times which caused for its suspension and concluding second after Frontman, a John Gosden-trained horse in the Rita Ora Live held at Windsor Racecourse Maiden Stakes.
Halvin is expected to rule out of Ascot’s Qipco King George Weekend with the ban that is expected from July 15 to 27 missing the Group One King George VI and Queen Elizabeth II Stakes.
The bet has ridden the best every tally with 127 champions the previous year which is why the team has hopes that the penalty may be lessened with some leeway.
On an interview, the trainer mentioned that Paul Struthers, chief executive from Professional Jockeys Association, reviewed the interview and is certain that there was no force behind the strikes ever shot.
He added that there were no marks for the bet and that the horse ate up fine on the morning.
“I hold my hands up going over the permitted level, and I rarely get whip bans.”
The interview was concluded by:
“If there is any way of appealing against the severity of it, Paul will let me know.”
