The Racing Stewards concluded the Aspara and Maxamore cases this morning.


Gilbert Rousset has been handed a 12-month disqualification for the Maxamore case, while he has been fined Rs 100,000 for the Aspara matter.

It is worth noting that Mr Gavin Glover, the lawyer of Gilbert Rousset, had already stated on November 13th, that his client would appeal against both sanctions.
