Champion jockey Oisin Murphy was suspended for a seven-day period after being found guilty of careless riding at Ayr aboard Tiritomba (Ire) (Exceed And Excel {Aus}) on Monday. The winning filly appeared to drive across the runner-up Ricksen (GB) (Acclamation {GB}) with Paul Mulrennan in the irons at the finish on Aug. 24. The stewards determined that Murphy “allowed his mount to drift left for a considerable time without sufficient correction causing Mulrennan to take a significant check and clip heels.” Murphy leads in the jockeys' championship by 18 winners over Tom Marquand.
