John Allen loses his appeal at RAD Board

The Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board has dismissed an appeal by John Allen who now misses the ride on Cliff's Edge at Flemington.

Jockey John Allen has lost his bid to ride Cliff's Edge in the C S Hayes Stakes at Flemington.

The Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board on Thursday dismissed Allen's appeal against the severity of a nine-meeting suspension for careless riding incurred at Caulfield last Saturday.

With Allen now sidelined until next Tuesday, Brad Rawiller takes the ride on Cliff's Edge in Saturday's C S Hayes Stakes.

A first-up winner of the Manfred Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on February 3, Cliff's Edge shares top billing with stablemate Peaceful State at $5 in the 1400m-race, a lead-up to the Group One Australian Guineas (1600m) at Flemington on March 3.
