TCO2 update for the Last two weeks including Fairview's latest odds on shot

Fairview on Monday, experienced a quiet day, relatively speaking, following on from Saturday's 'Kenilworth 7' and Sunday's Scottsville meeting where two odds on shots respectively were scratched sending punters into a frenzy.

Fairview, however, wasn't exempt from any issues. They saw another odds on shot, a third in three days, scratched due to the controversial test. However, it was only the one for the day.

This time Gavin Smith's Dance Mo was taken out. Listed as even money with some bookmakers at the time of his scratching and odds on with others, TC02 continues to haunt stables and punters alike. This is seemingly Smith's first TC02 positive since the tests began.

The last two weeks have produced Pritti Victory (Gareth Van Zyl) at Greyville on June 15, Captain's Clover (Robyn Klassen) at Turffontein 16th June, Perfect Trust (Carl Hewitson) Greyville 19th June, then the 'Kenilworth 7' on 22 June including Love Shack (Candice Bass Robinson), Port Louis (Brett Crawford) as well as One Stripe (Vaughan Marshall) was taken out of the Gr3 Langerman as well as Blue Bay (Brett Crawford).

Race 10, however, had the most TCO2 scratchings in one race since testing started in South Africa, with 3 out of the contest. These included Baton Rogue (Piet Botha), Twice The Master (Vaughan Marshall) and Lockheed Lightning (Vaughan Marshall).

My Boy Lollipop (Frank Robinson) was another odds on shot gone at Greyville 23 June and the Fairview incident yesterday was the latest.
