Champion trainer Willie Mullins has been handed a two-week racecourse ban due to a Covid-19 protocol breach by his staff.

Two of Mullins' staff, Katie Murphy and Steve Jones attended a meeting at Aintree on November seventh and were at Punchestown a week later then they should have been self-isolating.

The IHRB tweeted: "At a referral hearing of W.P. Mullins (Trainer) following the fixture at Punchestown on 14/11/20, Mr. Mullins was found in breach of rule 272(i), fined €2,500 & prohibited from accessing a racecourse for two weeks for a breach of Covid-19 protocols. Full details in due course."
