Group One-winning trainers Robert Smerdon and Stuart Webb have agreed to stand down pending the hearing into serious charges against them relating to race day treatments.

Smerdon employees Denise Nelligan and Daniel Garland will also stand down while trainers Tony Vasil and Liam Birchley along with Greg Nelligan have been issued show cause notices as to why they should not stand down.

The eighth person charged, trainer Trent Pennuto, is already serving a disqualification for stomach tubing a horse.
