VETERAN New Zealand jockey Alwyn Tweedie has been suspended for six weeks by the Stipendiary Stewards of the Macau Jockey Club on a handling charge. Tweedie rides Ground Commander, favourite for Sunday's $1 million Macau Derby, but the ban will begin after the meeting. Tweedie was found to have breached the MJC rule 131 (ii) for his ride on Phoenix in the Damascus Handicap at Taipa last Saturday. Tweedie will be on the sidelines after the Derby meeting until Monday, May 10. Meanwhile, English ace Tony Ives finds himself very much in demand for Sunday's Derby. He was declared for two horses in the Classic field yesterday. Ives was officially declared to ride Good Luck Lynx for trainer John Gilmore and Spiritual Warrior for Charles Leck. No explanation was given for the bizarre double booking save a rather logical provision at the bottom of the declaration sheet that Ives would ride either horse. Even for a jockey of his undoubted talent, riding both might prove difficult.
