Dean Yendall's national jockeys' premiership chances have suffered a major blow with a careless riding suspension at Flemington.
Yendall will miss 10 meetings after pleading guilty to careless riding aboard Profit Share in the Taj Rossi Series Final on Saturday.
Yendall has ridden 143 winners this season.
Greg Ryan leads the nationwide premiership with 149-1/2 wins and is two ahead of Brad Rawiller who rode a double at Flemington.
Yendall is 14 winners behind Rawiller in the Victorian premiership.
The season ends on July 31.
Yendall was outed for shifting out aboard Profit Share at the 500m mark when not clear of Total Control which had to be checked.
His suspension starts on Tuesday and he can return to race riding on July 25.
