Samples taken from Wood Ditton Stakes winner Mariner's Cross and 1000 Guineas also-ran Lyric Of Light were found to contain propoxyphene.

The disciplinary panel said it could not be satisfied the administration of the substance was accidental and gave Godolphin trainer Al Zarooni a £1,000 fine for each breach.

Both horses have also been disqualified from their respective races.
