    Yeah, I know, just saying that I thought it was reported, whereas Brumby is saying that it hasn't been from what he's seen.

    I haven't seen it written anywhere that says he was banned for coke, just that he's been banned because he was found guilty of a testing positive to a 'non performance-enhancing banned substance'.

    Actually now that I'm reading an article on it it says:

    Although there has been much speculation as to the substance that he tested positive for it is unlikely, unless Dettori reveals, it will ever be known as France Galop policy is not to divulge such details.

    And they report it as 'believed to be cocaine'. So again it's just speculation, but as Brumbeh said, it's more than likely to be the case.

    Generally accepted here that it nose candy

    Frankie is almost universally regarded as the world's best but hardly the most disciplined and it's probably no coincidence that he was done in just about his first race outside the protection of the guy who supports European racing

    I was there. Not pleasant, and the writing was on the wall very early.

    Will be a tough day at Waikouaiti tomorrow too.

    A brilliant NZ Derby over the weekend, won by a really sensational filly called Habibi - 7 starts now for 6 wins and a fast-finishing third. The first time in the 138-year history of the race that fillies have won it two years in a row, and only the second time ever that fillies have run 1-2 in the race. So it was pretty cool.

    But it wasn't enough to be mentioned on the TV1 news - funny that the first time they've ever left it out (in my memory, at least) just happened to coincide with the first year of TV3 sponsoring the race.

    Can't wait for Cheltenham next week. Really fancy a few but Gevrey Chambertin, Cantlow and Far West stand out along with Sam Winner.

    As for the big races Zarkandar, Sprinter Sacre, Wonderful Charm ew and Silvinacio Conti.
