William Buick intends to appeal against the severity of the six-week ban imposed by the stewards for his ride in Sunday’s Hong Kong Vase.

The jockey pleaded guilty to a charge of reckless riding after partnering the Tony Cruz-trained Pakistan Star to finish sixth in the Group One heat.

Buick was found to have caused interference to both Waldgeist and Red Verdon when going for a gap with a couple of furlongs to race, with the Hong Kong Jockey Club stewards suspending him from December 17 to January 28, which is equivalent to 12 Hong Kong racedays.

Buick was also fined HK$20,000 for the rule breach, but intends to lodge an appeal against the sanctions
