Schofield suspended but keeps Metrop ride

Glyn Schofield will miss the Sir Rupert Clarke stakes meeting but will be back from suspension in time to ride Avilius in the Group One Metropolitan.

Glyn Schofield  will be able to ride Avilius  in the Group One Metropolitan after an impassioned plea for leniency on a careless riding charge.

Schofield was outed for a shift on Avilius whose win in Saturday's Kingston Town Stakes earned him $2.80 favouritism for the Metropolitan on September 29.

He will miss the ride on Home Of The Brave  in the Group One Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes at Caulfield next Saturday.

Schofield received five meetings and can return on September 28.
