Coleman wins Thurles non-trier appeal.

Byline: Tony O'Hehir

JOHN COLEMAN, the County Kildare permit-holder, has won his appeal against the Irpounds 800 fine imposed on him, and the 42-day ban imposed on his horse Centralisation in relation to the horse's running at Thurles on May 10, writes Tony O'Hehir.

The Thurles stewards decided that Centralisation, who finished strongly in second in the first division of the amateurs' maiden hurdle, had not been allowed to run on his merits.

The Appeals and Referrals Committee of the Turf Club

reversed both penalties yesterday, but warned Coleman to be more careful when giving instructions to jockeys. Coleman said he would give the Irpounds 800 to the Injured Jockeys' Fund.

Amateur Denis Cullen, who rode Centralisation and was banned for 28 days, did not appeal.

nTurf Club chief executive Brian Kavanagh yesterday explained the decision by the Appeals and Referrals Committee that trainer-jockey Tony Martin should forfeit his deposit after an apparently successful appeal against penalties

imposed by the Gowran stewards, who decided his Corrib Supreme had not been allowed to run on its merits last month.

"He did not win his appeal," said Kavanagh. "In view of the weight of veterinary evidence presented at the hearing they decided to reduce the fine and the suspensions imposed."
