Cox Plate veterinary examinations

Racing Victoria (RV) veterinarians have today inspected all 14 starters and the emergency for this Saturday’s Ladbrokes Cox Plate (2040m) at The Valley.

Two horses trained by Aidan O’Brien will be re-examined by veterinarians tomorrow, Magic Wand and Armory.

Magic Wand presented with lameness in her right fore limb while Armory presented with a degree of lameness in his left fore limb.

RV will provide a further update tomorrow following the completion of the re-inspections which will be conducted by a panel of three veterinarians (two from Racing Victoria and one independent).

All other horses have been passed fit to race.
