Hugh Bowman will miss the unofficial start of Sydney’s carnival with a careless riding suspension ruling him out of the Expressway Stakes meeting.

The premiership-leading jockey was outed at Canterbury on Monday for his winning ride on Colour Of Money.

He pleaded guilty to shifting out at the top of the straight and bumping into Brodie Loy’s mount Wildenstein.

Bowman will miss the ride on 2013 Doomben Cup winner Beaten Up who resumes in Saturday’s Group Two Expressway (1200m) giving Blake Shinn the chance to further close the gap in the premiership race.

Shinn had a double at Canterbury to move within 1-1/2 of Bowman, who starts his suspension on Thursday.

Fellow jockey Brenton Avdulla will have an extended stint on the sidelines after having a six-meeting ban for his ride on Inz’n’out added to another suspension.

He was outed for crossing over when not clear of Brodie Loy’s mount Floral Insight in the 1100m benchmark 75.

It wasn’t all bad news for Avdulla who snared a win on Serenade, which more than made up for her inauspicious debut to earn a start in the $250,000 Inglis Classic with victory.

The filly dominated Monday’s 1200m two-year-old maiden with a new set of blinkers helping her keep her mind on the task at hand.

The Mike Moroney-trained juvenile did what the stable thought she would do at Gosford on December 29 when instead she finished second last, 10 lengths from the winner.

Unforgiving punters sent her out at $19 for her second start but, after taking the early lead, Serenade got further in front the further she went.

On the line she had five lengths on I’m Not Sure ($2.70) with Echo Queen ($12) another half length third.

“She will go to the Inglis Classic on Saturday week now,” Moroney’s stable representative Robbie Hewitson said.

“The blinkers did it for her today.

“She has always shown us a lot at home and we were very disappointed by her Gosford run.

“It was woeful.”

Hewitson said he told Avdulla to be positive and get her into a position early.

For his part, Avdulla said the filly was focused and got to the front easily and controlled the race.
