He was outed for causing interference aboard Written In Stone in Saturday’s Moorookyle Park Handicap in which the Ryusei Sakai-ridden Good Therapy was checked.

Thompson rode a double at Saturday’s meeting on Shoreham and Ozi Choice and rode another winner, Graceful Storm, at Bendigo on Sunday.

Thompson’s appeal will be heard by the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board at 9am on Wednesday.
