STAR Sydney jockey Tommy Berry will appeal the severity of a month-long riding suspension he incurred in Hong Kong on Sunday night that threatens to rule him out of the rich Magic Millions carnival.

Berry rode two winners at the Sha Tin international meeting but his success was soured when stewards charged him for failing to ride his mount, Smart Man, to the finish of a support race.

Berry pleaded guilty to the charge but was shocked when hit with a 10-meeting ban. The commencement of his penalty period is delayed until after Saturday's Villiers Stakes meeting at the Kensington track.

The length of his suspension seems harsh and could prove very costly as the Magic Millions is run at the Gold Coast on January 11, five days before he is due to resume riding.

Berry, who has won two Magic Millions 2yo Classics on Karuta Queen (2011) and Driefontein (2012), is partnering Gai Waterhouse's boom first-starter Echo Gal in the TAB Rewards Plate at Warwick Farm tomorrow.

Echo Gal was very impressive winning a barrier trial at Randwick late last month and is rated one of Waterhouse's main contenders for the $2 million Magic Millions 2yo Classic.

Waterhouse has already won four Magic Millions with Assertive Lad (2000), Excellerator (2001), Dance Hero (2004) and Driefontein (2012).
