Lingfield ban for de Giles

Felix De Giles was handed a 12-day ban by the Lingfield stewards for taking the wrong course on Newton Tonic in the Crowhurst Handicap Chase.

De Giles ended up on the hurdles course with a circuit to go and by the time he realised his mistake it was all too late.

His suspension starts on December 29 and takes in December 31-January 10.

The race was won by David Pipe's Take Over Sivola.
