Tom O'Brien: Set to miss the Cheltenham Festival

Sky Bet

Tom O'Brien is set to miss the Cheltenham Festival after he was hit with a 10-day suspension at Doncaster on Wednesday.

O'Brien was found guilty of "failing to take all reasonable and permissible measures to obtain the best possible placing" aboard Benefit Cut, who finished seventh in the race won by Minella Forfitness.

The jockey is due to be sidelined between March 6-15, and with the Festival running from March 12-15 that would mean he misses all four days.
