The Court of Appeal of the Supreme Court in Australia has set June 9 as the date it will decide whether to hear the Racing Victoria appeal against the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) ruling that exonerated trainers Danny O'Brien and Mark Kavanagh in the ongoing cobalt saga.

According to, a three-judge panel will hear the application seeking leave to appeal the VCAT decision which cleared the trainers of any wrongdoing after horses in their care tested positive for cobalt.

The application for appeal will be heard by the court the morning of June 9; if granted, Racing Victoria's appeal will be heard that afternoon.
