Hollinshead was found guilty of schooling in public and failing to give adequate riding instructions to 7lb claimer Peter Hatton, who received a 14-day ban (January 20-February 2 inclusive) for failing to ensure his horse ran on its merits, while the horse was banned for 40 days.
The rider told the stewards that his instructions were to give the horse an educational ride as he had run on the Flat and might be keen. The trainer's representative said that he agreed that those were his instructions as Second Brook had had a wind operation since his last run on the Flat.
