Richard Hughes’ appeal against the five-day ban he was handed at Salisbury earlier this month will now be heard next week.
The rider was adjudged to have used his whip six times on Swift Blade inside the final furlong (200m) on October 10, once more than allowed, but he felt at the time that one of his strikes was a corrective measure.
Hughes went on to pick up a further ban at Kempton on October 12 which as a second offence meant he was suspended for 15 days, forcing him out of the Breeders’ Cup meeting.
Hughes subsequently said he would not ride again until the new rules were altered.
Christophe Soumillon will also have his appeal regarding his use of the whip when winning the Champion Stakes at Ascot heard next week.
Soumillon was banned for five days for using his whip with excessive frequency aboard Cirrus Des Aigles in the Group One contest.
The suspension also applies in France where he is currently chasing the jockeys’ title and Soumillon lost not only his riding fee, but also his share of the prize money which was around STG50,000 ($A77,048)
