Apprentice Ben Allen is considering relinquishing his rides at Moonee Valley to ride at the Memsie Stakes meeting.

Allen was hit with an eight-meeting careless riding ban at Sandown on Wednesday and has bookings in four races at Moonee Valley on Saturday.

He partnered the Darren Weir-trained Tosen Stardom into fifth place in last Saturday's P B Lawrence Stakes and was hoping for a six-day penalty to allow him to ride the former Japanese horse in the Group One Memsie Stakes at Caulfield on September 2.
