Apprentice Blaike McDougall’s first metropolitan double has been tempered by a careless riding suspension.
McDougall rode two winners at Randwick on Wednesday but was outed for a shift on Pirate Ben causing another horse to be checked.
It was the fourth recent ban for McDougall who is indentured to John Thompson at Randwick.
His latest suspension starts after he finishes one from last Saturday’s Scone meeting and he can come back on June 3.
Newcastle jockey Craig Dwyer was also suspended from an incident in the same race.
