The Stewards opened an inquiry into the late scratching of Shamrock Lava at 9.08am this morning, only a short time after scratchings closed. After hearing submissions, Mr Purcell acknowledged an offence under GAR 23 (1) (a) for failing to examine Shamrock Lava prior to the close of scratchings to ensure he was free of illness or injury. A fine of $200 was issued. Due to the circumstances in the commission of the offence and Mr Pursell's candor in dealing with Stewards, $100 was suspended for 6 months.
Mr Purcell was also queried about the prospects and betting activity for He's an Ace (8) after significant support was identified by the GRV Betting Analyst throughout the day. Mr Pursell thought the greyhound would perform very well first up and had trialled well in preperation. Mr Pursell supported He’s An Ace as did connections and associates due to this confidence.
