Four-day ban for Johnson


Jockey Kenny Johnson's misery continued as he failed to smash a long losing sequence - and picked up a whip ban along the way at Catterick yesterday. The former champion amateur experienced his 145th ride without a win as Damza was narrowly denied in the Hans Christian Anderson Handicap Chase.

Then salt was rubbed in the wounds as Johnson, 30, was hauled over the coals by the stewards for his riding in an earlier race.
