Pat Cosgrave will have his appeal against a six-month ban for improper riding in Dubai heard on Monday.

Cosgrave was adjudged to have moved his horse Anaerobio's line to allow the Mike De Kock-trained stablemate Vercingetorix a clear run to victory in the Jebel Hatta on 8 March.

Vercingetorix won the Group One race, with Anaerobio finishing third.

Cosgrave, 31, from Banbridge in Northern Ireland, was a Royal Ascot winner on Society Rock in 2011.
