Veterinary Surgeon Dr. Linda Corney examined the greyhound after it competed last week and advised Stewards that the greyhound had split its webbing on the nearside hind foot and subsequently issued the greyhound with a certificate of incapacitation for 10 days.

In considering the request of Mr Azzopardi to have the period of incapacitation reduced in accordance with GAR73 (3) to allow the greyhound to compete in the Macro Meats Megastar Final at Dapto on Thursday 29 July.

Stewards have directed the greyhound be examined by Dr Corney at Alcorn Street Veterinary Clinic in the presence of Stewards on Wednesday 28 July.
