Very good day again yesterday with three winners but Solicit run questioned by stewards...... Hughie's explanation that he didn't "push his mount full out to the line" is not what it looked like in the replay......he made no effort to urge the horse .......let it walk to the line to finish tailed off...beaten 47.5 L. :o

Solicit – rider H Bowman stated that, as the mare overraced in the lead in the early and middle stages, he had some concerns regarding its ability to finish off the race as far out as the 700m. He added, although he had no specific concerns with the mare's galloping action, it was immediately under pressure on straightening and, when it was apparent it was well beaten, he did not push his mount full out to the line. A post-race veterinary examination revealed the mare to be displaying a poor post-race recovery and had lost its off-fore plate. Trainer Mr G Ryan could offer no tangible excuse and said that he will consult with the owners before deciding on the mare's immediate racing future. The inquiry was adjourned pending that advice.

Goes to a 3 race lead with that winner. Looking like it is "all over red rover" for this year's jockey's premiership.

Hughie did an Oliver on Damian Lane yesterday at Ascot......Ollie got 20 meetings......Hughie got home free.

General: Jockey D. Lane (THE CELT) and Jockey H. Bowman (LUSAHA) were interviewed in relation to their mounts making contact on several occasions near the 150m. Jockey H. Bowman was cautioned and told he must ensure that he has sufficient room to improve between runners and avoid making contact to other horses in an endeavour to obtain clear running in future.

Watch the head on closely and you will see D.Lane using his left reign to ride his horse in on H.Bowman so why isn't this foul riding.

It's one thing to ride tight but to do what D.Lane has done is not on.

D.Lane is the lucky one not to get time.

In regards to D.Oliver getting 20 meetings he pushed out in such a dangerous manner the stewards had no option but to suspend him.

D.Lane is heading back to Melbourne as a very lucky jockey to have escaped suspension.

Bowman in trouble for the second time for allegedly not riding his horse out to the line...the first time he was lucky the horse won and he copped a small fine ..today he was fined $1000 and suspended for 5 days on Realise Potential which dead heated for second in the last race ...it was not a threat to the winner..........having watched the replay it seemed to me that he rode it right out .......obviously the stewards are in a better position to see the finish with both views ..if he did stop it appeared it was only a stride or less from the post. :o

https://www.punters.com.au/news/bowman-appeals-in-effort-to-ride-winx_165836/

Hugh Bowman has changed his mind and will appeal the two riding bans he incurred over the Australia Day weekend in an effort to ride Winx in the Apollo Stakes.

The leading Sydney jockey has already lodged an appeal against the penalty of a ban he received at Warwick Farm on Friday.

Bowman's manager Bryan Haskins confirmed to Punters.com.au that he also plans to appeal the suspension he incurred at Ellerslie on Saturday.

As things currently stand Bowman will be sidelined until February 22.  The Apollo Stakes will take place at Randwick on February 17.

Bowman initially indicated he wouldn't be appealing and was resigned to missing the star mare's return race.

The last time Winx raced without Bowman was in September 2015 when James McDonald rode her to victory in the Theo Marks Stakes.

NSW Stewards agreed to alter the timing of his suspension to start earlier and finish on 10th Feb according to another report I read then he has to overcome the guilty plea and hope he gets special consideration based on the severity......lots of eyes will be watching to see that fair play is applied.

https://www.racing.com/news/2018-01-29/hugh-bowman-may-yet-ride-winx

Late news is his appeal sdet down for hearing in Sydney at 11am on Monday.

The NZ hearing date not yet announced.

No surprise that Hughie's appeal fell on deaf ears..they could hardly make an exception on account of WINX Waller is reported to have said he may delay the mares next race so Bowman can ride her.

Hughie was kept in overnight and released this morning according to the Racing NSW site.

Looks like he will be OK to ride Winx in the Ryder.

Hypothetically, would Waller have scratched Winx if Hughie wasn't able to ride her?

Was a nasty fall

Ranier - Stewards questioned rider Hugh Bowman regarding his riding of the colt in the straight. He reported that he was held up for clear running until near the 100m, whereby he then made the decision to come to the outside of Wild Planet where there was sufficient room to improve. He added that after initially attempting a run to the inside of Wild Planet passing the 200m he then had to steady due to that gelding shifting in slightly. Stewards questioned Hugh Bowman as to the reason why he did not attempt the run between Wild Planet and Big Night Out sooner than he did passing the 100m. He explained that he was aware that Syds Coin had been racing to his outside and that had he shifted out sooner towards that colt, then he may have caused Syds Coin to be taken out onto the heels of Big Night Out. After taking into account all the circumstances, Stewards severely reprimanded Hugh Bowman for failing to shift out and obtaining a clear run passing the 100m sooner than he did on this occasion and that he would be expected to do so when racing in similar circumstances in future. A post race veterinary examination failed to reveal any abnormalities.

Ranier looked a moral beaten but the run the stewards thought he should have taken was only there for an instant .....on Friday night the stewards couldn't be comfortably satisfied there was a run for Regan Bayliss and dismissed his protest......I have very little confidence in their opinions.

For a so called "great jockey " the ride lacked nerve. Truly great riders like Moore or Dittman would have been into that run in a flash.
Sadly he is not to that level despite the hype.

Fours, I suspect your comment is pretty accurate. However I would have loved to have been around if  a certain ex Randwick mentor with first  two initials "TJ " had observed that ride and heard some explanation along the lines you have suggested. Come to think about it there is still a mentor out at Warwick Farm called Connors who I am sure would have loved to hear an explanation  like that !

If he's going to ride like that on day's or in the lead up to Winx's races then he shouldn't be taking other rides.

Absolute slaughter job, had ample time to take the gap when it presented  emthdown

Should count himself very lucky to only get a reprimand  :shutup:

REPOSTED FROM MELB CUP THREAD.


EXTRACT FROM STEWARDS REPORT Hugh Bowman (Marmelo (GB)) - pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under the provisions of AR137(a), the carelessness being that near the 500m he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear of Chestnut Coat (JPN) resulting in that horse being checked when tightened for room. Hugh Bowman had his licence to ride in races suspended for a period of twelve race meetings. In assessing penalty Stewards took into account his guilty plea and good record and that the carelessness was in the mid-range.

Hugh Bowman (Marmelo (GB)) - pleaded guilty to a charge under the provisions of AR137A(5)(a)(ii) for using his whip twelve times prior to the 100m, which is seven times more than permitted. Hugh Bowman had his licence to ride in races for a period of eight race meetings. In assessing penalty Stewards took into account his gross breach of the rule in a Group 1 event.

Hugh Bowman (Marmelo (GB)) - pleaded guilty to a charge under the provisions of AR145 for returning to scale more than a half kilogram over his declared riding weight. Hugh Bowman has his licence to ride in races suspended for a period of twenty-one race meetings.

Stewards deemed that all three suspensions be served cumulatively, however to avoid making his term of suspension manifestly excessive, Hugh Bowmans licence to ride in races was suspended for a period to commence at midnight November 8th and to expire at midnight December 8th, a total of thirty-five race meetings (one calendar month)


 IMO 35 days out is an abuse of power...... an obvious excessive penalty which on any fair assessment will be overturned on appeal ...12 meetings for interference ...8 meetings for excessive use of the whip 7over ........admittedly 7 over was in excess of other whip violations ..McEvoy 4 over $3K fine.....Bayliss 5 over $1.5K fine .....Lane & Dunn both 4 over same as McEvoy fined $800...and 21 for being overweight...all cumulative but in their wisdom "however to avoid making his term of suspension manifestly excessive, Hugh Bowmans licence to ride in races was suspended for a period to commence at midnight November 8th and to expire at midnight December 8th, a total of thirty-five race meetings (one calendar month" a reduction of 6 meetings.....so down from manifestly excessive to just plain excessive...the stewards in their own words have shot themselves in the foot.

Bowman appeals severity of ban


Andrew Eddy@fastisheddy

4:34pm

Jockey Hugh Bowman is to fight the severity of his 35-meeting ban arising from his Melbourne Cup ride aboard Marmelo with an appeal to be heard on Tuesday.

The Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board will hear Bowman's appeal at 9:30am.


Bowman on Friday lodged a notice of appeal against the severity of the penalty imposed by the stewards when he pleaded guilty to three charges with respect to his ride on Marmelo.

Charge 1- Bowman pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under the provisions of AR137(a), the carelessness being that near the 500m he permitted his mount to shift in when not clear ofChestnut Coat (JPN)resulting in that horse being checked when tightened for room. Bowman had his licence to ride in races suspended for a period of twelve race meetings. In assessing penalty stewards took into account his guilty plea and good record and that the carelessness was in the mid-range.

Charge 2- Bowman pleaded guilty to a charge under the provisions of AR137A(5)(a)(ii) for using his whip twelve times prior to the 100m, which is seven times more than permitted. Bowman had his licence to ride in races for a period of eight race meetings. In assessing penalty stewards took into account his gross breach of the rule in a Group 1 event.

Charge 3- Bowman pleaded guilty to a charge under the provisions of AR145 for returning to scale more than a half kilogram over his declared riding weight.Bowman has his licence to ride in races suspended for a period of twenty-one race meetings.

The stewards deemed that all three suspensions be served cumulatively, however, to avoid making the term of suspension manifestly excessive, Bowman's licence to ride in races was suspended for a period to commence at midnight on 8 November, 2018 and to expire at midnight on 8 December, 2018, a total of 35 race meetings.

A stay of proceedings was not requested.ENDS

This is how appeals need to be set down quickly not like QLD where they first  have a shot at Internal Review .....not sure how long it takes.....would have to check results to find the average time ..... but if they fail there and apply to QCAT it takes ages ...most unsatisfactory for everyone involved.

Bowman in big appeal
LEO SCHLINK
 
PENALISED: Hugh Bowman.

CHAMPION jockey Hugh Bowman will argue a 21-meeting ban for weighing in overweight in the Melbourne Cup is excessive when he faces the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board today.

Bowman finished second on Marmelo before weighing in at 56kg instead of 55kg – 100 grams more than tolerated.

Bowman claims up to “four or five other jockeys weighed 0.9 over, which I am allowed to do”.

Bowman said he had weighed out at 55kg 90 minutes before last Tuesday’s Cup but had drunk a bottle of water before mounting Marmelo.

“I knew exactly where my weight was at,” Bowman said on Channel 7.

“And I misjudged it by 100 grams.

“If I was 0.9 over, I would have been right. (But) I came in exactly one kilogram over and I am not allowed to do it.

“I accept responsibility but I think the penalty far outweighs the problem.”

Bowman pleaded guilty to three charges out of the cup – careless riding, excessive whip use and weighing over.

It is unclear if Bowman intends appealing the careless riding and whip penalties.

ENDS
Now we know how he was over
He'll know next time only drink half a bottle.
