Dyna Virion - Late scratching at 17:10pm on the advice of the On-Track Veterinarian (GAR 37) due to pyrexia. A 5 day stand down period was imposed. Stewards spoke with trainer Ms Cassendra Jayakody with regard to the circumstances surrounding the late scratching of the greyhound, noted the trainers advice and further ordered a veterinary certificate of fitness pursuant to GAR 20 (3) (v) before any future nomination will be accepted.

Mrs Lithgow pleaded guilty to the charge, Gotham Duke was found guilty and must perform a Satisfactory Trial in accordance with GAR 69B (1) and pursuant to GAR 72, before any future nomination will be accepted.
