Apprentice Rebecca Goldsbury has been suspended for a second time this year on a handling charge.

Stewards opened an inquiry into Goldsbury’s ride on Occilupo at Toowoomba on December 2 but adjourned it to allow her to get further evidence.

At a reconvened inquiry stewards charged Goldsbury with breaching the rule which states a jockey must take all reasonable and permissible measures to ensure a horse is given full opportunity to win or run its best place.

Goldsbury pleaded not guilty but stewards found against her and suspended her for two months starting Saturday night.

Stewards noted she had only recently resumed from a suspension for a breach of the same rule.

She is expected to seek an internal review.

Larry Cassidy and Luke Rolls will each miss a Saturday metropolitan meeting after being suspended for nine days for causing interference in separate races at Doomben on Saturday.

Fellow riders Tegan Harrison and Matt McGuren are expected to be sidelined for several weeks with injuries sustained in the NSW Northern Rivers last week.
