Curragh,  8th  October,  2006

The Appeals Body, Division One, Mr. Justice Ronan Keane (in the Chair), Mrs. T.K. Cooper and Mr. Peter N. Reynolds, met at the Stand House Hotel, The Curragh, Co. Kildare, on Friday, 20th October, 2006, to consider an appeal lodged by Apprentice Jockey, David J. Moran, against the decision of the Acting Stewards at the Curragh on 8th October, 2006, when following the running of the Derrinstown Stud Apprentice Handicap Final he was suspended for twenty one racedays for improper riding.
