passed fit to take its place in the field.

At the conclusion of an inquiry and after taking evidence from Jockey S Salee, the rider of
POLYGRAPH, Jockey Lou Ho, the rider of CRAZY CLUB and Jockey M Wepner, the rider
of SISTER IN LAW, Jockey S Salee pleaded guilty to a charge of careless riding under MRA
