Fawcett will be suspended for eight days, from the conclusion of racing next Saturday up to and including November 8.

Cowan allowed Bully Boy to shift ground near the 100-metre mark in the ninth race, causing Richard Of Yorke to check.

Cowan was suspended from seven days, from the conclusion of racing next Saturday up to and including November 7.
