What is the scope of penalties that the Disciplinary Panel may impose?
The scope of penalties that the Disciplinary Panel may impose is set out in the Guide to Procedures and Penalties. The Guide is divided into sections for Racecourse penalties and Disciplinary Panel penalties. Under each individual Rule breach, the Guide sets out the range of penalties available to the Disciplinary Panel together with a recommended entry point. In most cases the Stewards and the Panel will follow the range indicated in the Guide, although they can give a higher or lower penalty if they have good reason to do so in that particular case.
