THE POWER BROKER - held up for clear racing room through the early stages of the home straight. Junior driver K McNaught (assisted by Senior horseman A Beck) was shown the films and questioned as to why he waited until nearing the 30 metres to utilise the passing lane when the opportunity to do so had presented itself near the 150 metres. After taking into account the explanation tendered by Mr McNaught and Mr Beck, Stewards issued a charge pursuant to Rule 868(2) in that Mr McNaught failed to take all reasonable and permissible measures to allow his horse to finish in its best possible position. After viewing replays and hearing evidence from all parties the JCA found the charge proved and imposed a suspension of Mr McNaught's junior horseman's licence from the close of racing on the 9th February 2019 up to and including the 7th March (6 days).
