Pat Cosgrave’s winning ride in the A$5 million Caulfield Cup has also resulted in a suspension for the visiting jockey.

Gosgrave guided the Saeed bin Suroor-trained Best Solution to a memorable win in yesterday’s Group One race in Melbourne, but stewards later charged him with careless riding.

Gosgrave pleaded guilty to shifting in near the 1800 metres on Best Solution, tightening the running of Japanese horse Chestnut Coat.

The 11-meeting ban begins immediately, meaning he will miss the ride on the Aidan O’Brien-trained Fleet Review in Friday night’s Gr. 1 Manikato Stakes at Moonee Valley. He can return to riding on October 31 and has riding commitments in Dubai before returning to Melbourne to partner Best Solution in the Melbourne Cup.

Japanese apprentice Ryusei Sakai was also suspended for 11 meetings after pleading guilty to careless riding at the same stage of the Caulfield Cup aboard Sole Power.

Jordan Childs was also hit with a careless riding ban from an earlier race on the programme.

Childs had deferred a suspension incurred last Saturday until after the Caulfield Cup meeting, so his back-to-back bans mean he will miss next Saturday’s Cox Plate.

He can return the day before the Victoria Derby meeting at Flemington, where he is set to ride star colt Written By in the Gr. 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes.
