Schofield seeks help after suspension

Melbourne's No.1 apprentice Chad Schofield has consulted a sports psychologist to help him improve his shocking careless riding record.

Schofield told the stewards he had begun seeking help after being suspended for the eighth time this season and the second time in two days at Flemington on Saturday.

The stewards found Schofield guilty of careless riding and suspended him for 10 meetings after he pleaded guilty to causing interference as he rode Auld Burns to victory in the Saintly Handicap at Flemington.

Schofield said he was the victim of an "ignorant horse" who refused to respond to his efforts to keep it straight.

But chief steward Terry Bailey told him his record had got to the point where "something needed to be done about it".

Stewards also suspended Schofield for seven meetings at Moonee Valley on Friday night.

He was one of four jockeys suspended at Flemington, among them Stephen Baster who was found guilty of careless riding on the Australian Guineas winner Ferlax.

Baster told the stewards his innocence of the charge was "ridiculously obvious", claiming that his horse was taken inwards by another soon after the start causing interference to several other runners.

He said he had done all he could to avoid the interference.

"I could do no more," Baster said.

"That's not careless on my behalf."

Stewards rejected his evidence and suspended him for 12 meetings, including next Saturday's Newmarket Handicap and Australian Cup card.

Baster said he would appeal.

Stewards also rubbed out champion rider Luke Nolen and Brad Rawiller, both for careless riding in the Bob Hoysted Handicap.

Nolen got seven meetings, permitting him to return to ride the favourite Moment Of Change in the Newmarket and Rawiller was put out for eight meetings, meaning he will miss the Australian Cup ride on Niconoise.
