Gay Kelleway has confirmed that she has launched an appeal against the disqualification of Praslin Island from first place at Nottingham on Monday.

The four-year-old, ridden by Neil Callan, edged left shortly after leaving the stalls in the 'Nottingham Racecourse And Conference Centre' Handicap.

One of those affected was the Philip Robinson-ridden Zincalo who finished strongly to get to within half a length of Praslin Island at the line.

Robinson lodged an objection against Callan for taking his ground shortly after the start.

Although it was overruled by the stewards, they found Callan guilty of irresponsible riding of a major nature, resulting in his mount's disqualification and a six-day ban (June 21st-26th inclusive) for the jockey.

And today she confirmed that an appeal has been launched against the decision of the racecourse stewards.

"He's jumped out, there's a bit of scrimmaging and they're a bit tight on the rail anyway," she told Sky Sports.

"I don't think it was 'major irresponsible', the highest of all and we're going to Portman Square on Monday.

"My concern is that there was no inquiry called until Philip Robinson brought it to their attention."
