Peterjon Carberry faces a hefty ban from the British Horseracing Authority after mistaking the winning post in the final race at Uttoxeter on Saturday.

Carberry was riding Rachel Hobbs' 100-30 favourite Monty's Moon in the Get Live Football Stats At totesport.com Novices' Handicap Hurdle and appeared to have the prize sewn up when racing into a clear lead after the final flight.

But he eased down when passing the marker that denotes the chase and hurdle course and he was passed by both Some Catch and Miller's Dawn in the final strides, being beaten a neck and three-quarters of a length into third.

The on-course stewards noted this was Carberry's second such offence within the space of 12 months and therefore referred the matter to the BHA.
