I'll concede B grade Wily, but that's my assessment. He certainly proved me wrong last Tuesday  :tomatoes:

From Racenet.

Ibuprofen positive confirmed for Signoff

Stewards have confirmed the Darren Weir-trained Signoff tested positive to Ibuprofen after his first-up win in the Listed Lord Stakes (1700m) on Boxing Day.

Stewards informed Weir of an irregularity in his initial urine test in January before advising the trainer of the confirmed findings this week.

Signoff is one of a rash of horses that have tested positive to Ibuprofen weeks or months after the substance has been used on horses in the treatment of tendon injuries.

Caulfield trainer Clinton McDonald has endured similar troubles with his comeback galloper Rib Eye, who has tested positive after three runs back from undergoing the same tendon rehabilitation program.

The trainers have said Ibuprofen has been released from the horse’s systems only when burning fat during gallops, while the horses have produced clear urine samples when idle.

Weir fined $5000 for incorrect horse identification
Andrew Eddy@fastisheddy   6:15pm

Leading trainer Darren Weir has been fined $5000 after pleading guilty to a charge of making a false or misleading statement or declaration relating to a Ballarat jump-out last month.
Weir was charged under AR 175 (gg) that stipulates stewards may penalise:

‘’Any person who makes any false or misleading statement or declaration in respect of  any matter in connection with the administration or control of racing.’’

The particulars of the charge we

‘’On August 3, Mr Weir did, via email from stable staff to the Ballarat Turf Club, falsely and misleadingly declare the name of seven horses, those being Spicer, Pelonomena, Kragle, Bindabooberri, French Fry, Ancient Echoes and Mio Nipotina, as having jumped out at Ballarat on 1 August in specific heats.

‘’As a result, the jump out information provided to the public for these heats was incorrect.

‘’Mr Weir’s actions, as listed above, constitutes a false and misleading declaration under AR175(gg).

‘’During the inquiry it was established that the correct horse identities were as follows:

Horse listed as Spicer in Heat 1 was Imperial Edition
Horse listed as Pelonomena in Heat 1 was Diamond Diva
Horse listed as Kragle in Heat 3 was Masterbrax
Horse listed as Bindabooberri in Heat 3 was Rewarding Girl
Horse listed as French Fry in Heat 7 was Holy Freeze
Horse listed as Ancient Echoes in Heat 7 was Buck Bay
Horse listed as Mio Nipotina in Heat 11 was Vogue Empress
‘’Mr Weir plead guilty to the charge and Stewards acting under LR 6C(2A) fined him the sum of $5000.

‘’In assessing the matter, stewards took into account Mr Weir’s guilty plea, evidence during the inquiry, that an initial email to the Ballarat Turf Club gave weight to the evidence that the offence was not premeditated, the circumstances surrounding the incident and the fact that the incident has the ability to erode the confidence of the industry.

‘’Stewards further wish to remind trainers that as of Monday, October 1, they must ensure that any horse nominated in jump outs which are listed in the Inside Racing publication must be correctly named and identified.ENDS

Stewards report that this communication was not premeditated but  their report contains no elaboration on the explanation that they would have sought from the trainer please explain.
