Trainer Mick Channon and jockey Michael Tebbutt's appeals against the punishments they received earlier this week under the revised "non-triers"' rules will be heard by the Jockey Club on Monday.

Channon was fined £1,500 and Tebbutt suspended for 10 days over the running of Spirit Of Light in the Burford Handicap at Windsor last Monday.

The trainer was found in breach of Rule 155 (i) which states that every horse should run on its merits and 155 (ii) which states that it is the duty of every trainer to ensure adequate instructions are given to the rider.

Tebbutt was found in breach of Rule 157 which covers jockeys failing to take all reasonable measures to ensure their horse reaches the best possible placing with the intention of concealing its true ability.

Channon and Tebbutt are the first people to be punished since the new rules replaced Rule 151 on March 23rd.

Spirit Of Love was suspended from racing for 40 days from March 30th.
