Fairly sure a non trier won at Lingfield many years ago (in almost identical circumstances). Almost another one there.

Kept himself tucked in behind whilst the winner went clear before what was supposed to be an encouraging running on into 2nd, then panic stations as he nearly wins.Cry

If he doesn't get banned for that we might as well not have stewards.

Not a mention of Havlin, 
if that was Rab Havlin claiming 7lb they would be saying "well you could give him the benefit of the doubt because he's so inexperienced"

The run to the line was bad enough but the worse part that gets overlooked is when the winner went before the bend he just stayed put and let it go, that's where the throwing of the race away happened.

Andy, he tried slightly harder when he was confident he wouldn't quite get there. Even then was nowhere near full effort.

Duffy, you are right though of course he'll try and claim he was trapped in for that bit. The final furlong and a half was telling as it made it blatant he was doing his best not to get there.

agreed asparagus, you can visibly see him get slightly more vigorous...same effort consistently throughout...would he have got up

Wasn't there a similar scenario a few years ago at Chepstow involving two Gosden horses?

I seem to recall it was quite controversial at the time, but I can't anything through a google search. Maybe I dreamt it Crazy

Frankie Dettori's first ride at Lingfield since October 29 last year was a winning one as expensive Derby entry Polling Day held on to his unbeaten record in the 1m4f novice event – but it was the performance of previously unraced stablemate Stowell in second which proved the main talking point on Wednesday.

Stowell finished strongly under Robert Havlin for second behind his John and Thady Gosden-trained stablemate, having run into traffic problems behind the retreating front-running pair of Scampi and Reverend Hubert turning for home.

Although Lingfield is not a track necessarily suited to those coming from off the pace, Stowell, who had around four lengths to make up on 2-9 favourite Polling Day with a furlong to run, picked up in eyecatching fashion in the closing stages to be beaten a fast-closing head at the line.

Sky Sports Racing pundit Jason Weaver remarked that the ride on the runner-up, who drifted from 8-1 to 16-1 before the off, was "very, very kid gloves". The race attracted no comment in the stewards' report.

Pundit Jason Weaver: "If he gets out at that point, he definitely goes and wins"

Edward Whitaker
In analysing the race, Weaver said: "Stowell has absolutely picked up under kid gloves all the way down the straight. He was checked in behind runners, it then opens up for him down on the inside and if he gets out at that point, he definitely goes and wins."

Entering the final furlong, Weaver added: "We still haven't see Rab [Havlin] get into that familiar drive of his. He doesn't quite get there in the closing stages. That was very, very kid gloves on the second all the way up to the line.

"Just looking at the jockey's body language, there wasn't much urgency there, was there? Stowell, the absolute eyecatcher there."

An enquiry was held into the running and riding of STOWELL, ridden by Robert Havlin and trained by John
& Thady Gosden, which, after breaking well, was settled behind the leaders for the majority of the race,
before being urged along under an apparently tender hands and heels ride rounding the final bend and up
the straight to finish second, beaten by a diminishing head. The rider and the trainers’ representative were
interviewed and shown recordings of the race; the Veterinary Officer reported that two post-race
examinations of the colt failed to reveal any abnormalities. The rider stated that his instructions were to
settle the colt and ride him to obtain his best possible position. He added that STOWELL was a fragile type
who had a high knee action, and that John Gosden had instructed him to ride the colt hands and heels and
not to use his whip. Havlin stated that he was happy with his position in behind the leaders but added that
the pace had slowed at half-way which he felt had not benefitted the colt. He added that upon entering the
final bend he was caught on the heels of SCAMPI, after which he switched to the inside and the colt ran on
well inside the final half furlong. He further stated that, in his opinion, the winner was idling in front and

therefore it appeared that STOWELL had finished faster than he actually had and that in time, the colt
would likely benefit from racing on turf with ease in the ground. The trainers’ representative stated that he
was happy with the ride and that it accorded with the instructions given and that they were very pleased
with this, STOWELL’s first run. Havlin was suspended for failing to take all reasonable and permissible
measures to ensure STOWELL obtained his best possible placing, in that after getting a clear run in the
straight, the colt had not been asked for a sufficient effort. Taking into account how well STOWELL ran on
up the straight despite being tenderly ridden, and the diminishing distance that the colt was beaten, Havlin
was suspended for 21 days.
