    As I understand it Carol the matter is still under investigation. There is more to be investigated then just the blood test results taken on the night. A prohibited substance positive is not required to breach the rule. No slight on Ellen but wouldn’t you expect every trainer to say it was another horse that was treated, both the honest who would be telling the truth, and the dishonest who would be attempting to cover up their wrong doing? Rightly or wrongly I doubt anything further would be released until the whole investigation has been concluded, which may take several weeks.

    Somebody told me to have a look at the start of Our Millionaire's track record win at YV today
    Why did the starter let them go when both 1&2 were so far off the gate - to the detriment of 8 ($1.30 fav) & 9

    Chris Alford was even more of a hinderance to the fav as he did not try to get 2 going
    Consequently the Stewart stable got a very handy start on the winner

    The starter seemed to be very obliging in R7 at Kilmore on Thursday night too
    As you will note in the Stewards report:

    A false start was declared when Beach Babe Nikky refused to score up. At the restart Beach Babe Nikky again refused to score up. As a result Beach Babe Nikky will continue to remain outside the draw for future mobile start races. Beach Babe Nikky took no competitive part in the race and was subsequently stood down from racing until the completion of one satisfactory trial.

    Why was a false start declared the first time (and the race shafted to Sky2) when the offending Stewart/Alford horse was ODM and drawn 7 of 7 and caused no interference?

    Needs to be an inquiry into this , can't bend the rules for favorites or certain stables . Starter can't call a false start for no valid reason.
    Don't die wondering !

    With considerable backing for the emergency before it got a run you would expect questions to be asked if it was All In betting

    Somebody that watched Shep R5 on TrotsVision emailed me that:

    ODM (11) odds on fav for Emma Stewart with a junior driver was circling on the second row but as the horses were called forward for the score up it is facing the opposite direction and refuses to turn back to score up - in fact it starts to head the wrong way.
    The Junior driver raises his arm and turns to look towards the mobile, presumably calling out (cannot be sure as no sound on Trotsvision yet).
    The camera goes back to the main body of field as they begin to score up, Chris Alford on the 3 (Wayne Potters) has jumped out of the cart and gone to his horses head (no clerk in sight) and started fiddling with the gear, stopping the start and causing a short delay.
    The gear is suddenly right again on the 3 and Alford jumps back in the bike and the score up re-commences. It is not on camera but presumably this coincides with Stewart’s horse facing the right way again and moving toward the start as it catches the field

    This is how one person saw it. We cannot see a replay.

    They said it will be interesting to see what the Steward's report has to say

    The Stewards saw no connection

    RACE 5 – COUNTRY WEEK LEGEND CHRIS RYE PACE (3RD HEAT) (1690 MS)

    Liftntorque was fractious in the score up, out of position when the start was affected and will continue to be drawn wide in future mobile starting events.

    Four Lonely Nights began badly and will be placed out of the draw in future mobile starting events. Four Lonely Nights then trailed the field thereafter.

    That reads that the stewards saw nothing at the start at all Kev, or I should say more accurately records nothing about the actions of the starter or Chris Alford after the starter has called the horses forward off the circle. Of course none of us that have been in the red hots for years would think for a second that a wily old driver would engage in a little “gamesmanship” to the advantage of his principle source of income.
