    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.

    A long, long time ago
    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 !
