Frost gets cold reception

Folkestone racecourse
Haddon Frost received a 12-day ban after mistakenly pushing out his mount, Romney Marsh, to 'win' the 2:30 Folkestone - only to realise he had another circuit go. The mare, trained by Roger Curtis, a major fancy in the five-runner race, was passed by the field as she was eased after the finishing post, never figuring thereafter although Frost tried to roust his tiring partner.

The Ladbrokespoker.com Handicap Chase (for the Number Engaged Challenge Bowl) (CLASS 5) (5yo+ 0-90) over 3m 1f was won by in good style by Delgany Gunner. A tearful Frost admitted his mistake. while Curtis was said to have shrugged his shoulders philosophically when asked by At The Races presenter, Luke Harvey.
