RWWA Stewards have been advised by the ChemCentre in Perth, that arsenic in excess of the threshold of 0.3 mg/L in urine has been detected in DISCO METAL after it won Race 1 at Ascot on 3 December 2016.

This finding has now been verified by the Racing Analytical Services Limited Laboratory (RASL) in Victoria.

Accordingly the Stewards will inquire into these reports on a date to be determined once all investigations are completed.
