Hollie Doyle, named to ride G1 King's Stand S. scorer Bradsell (GB) (Tasleet {GB}) in the GI Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint at Santa Anita Nov. 4, has appealed a seven-day suspension and will have to face the British Horseracing Authority disciplinary panel next week to determine if a trip to America is in the offing.

Doyle incurred the ban aboard the Jonathan Portman-trained Rose Light in the 11-furlong Unibet More Boosts In More Races Fillies' H. at Kempton Monday.

According to the stewards report, “Doyle was suspended for seven days for careless riding as she allowed her mount to shift right-handed when insufficiently clear of Flying Circus on her inside, causing [Neil] Callan to take a significant check to avoid clipping heels which resulted in Sindri, Page Three and Typical Woman to all be tightened for room and lose their respective racing positions on the inside.”

Doyle's ban is currently due to run from Oct. 30 to Nov. 4, plus Nov. 6 as there is no Flat racing in Britain Nov. 5.

If she is successful in having the punishment reduced to five days or less, she would then be free to ride.
