What is the process for appealing the decision of a Stewards Enquiry?

09 Jun 14

Anybody wishing to appeal a decision from the racecourse must submit written grounds within seven days, or 48 hours if the suspension of a jockey is involved.  The written grounds must be accompanied by a deposit of £500 (£250 if it is an apprentice or conditional jockey), which will be forfeited should the Disciplinary Panel dismiss the appeal and find ‘no reasonable grounds’ for its submission.  As with any other person appearing before the Disciplinary Panel, the appellant has the right to be legally represented.
