    It is interesting re the point you make about guilt. In WA it seems that all is needed is for RWWA to form an opinion that a persons attendance at a meeting is “ prejudicial to the proper conduct or control of racing etc.” Then the show cause notice is used re procedural fairness. The rest of the process is vague. I guess any appeal process may be around the word opinion. In WA this is in RWWA regulations although the Act is fairly similar. Also submissions to repeal warned off participants are heard by the Integrity Assurance Committee and appear to be quite rare.

    It is an interesting approach to an institutions governance but I guess is only utilised in fairly extreme circumstances.

    This is from an ABC News article from last Friday

    Last night, it served formal notices to those named in the report, warning them off "all venues controlled by Tasracing in Tasmania".
    According to the Australian Rules of Harness racing, a person who has been "warned off" is unable to "participate in any manner in the harness racing industry".

    "TasRacing is satisfied it has the grounds on which to make this decision under the Racing Regulation Act 2004, based on serious allegations and subsequent findings made by Mr Murrihy," Tasracing chief executive Andrew Jenkins said.

    "The named participants have a show cause period to provide evidence why the notice should be rescinded."

    Interesting as it would seem you are guilty until you prove yourself innocent

    It might be time for HRA to change at least one of their banner pics for the Top Twenty page

    Peaces Of You, Final Peace.
    It's very strange that the Tas board didn't get to see the report until it was made public, you would expect them to be kept informed !
    Don't die wondering !
