The training partnership is accused of breaching the rule regarding conduct prejudicial to the image and or/interests of racing' with the pair acknowledging galloping Stampede, Fabrizio and Sort After in place of Serena Bay, Debonairly and English last Tuesday.

Waterhouse and Bott would not enter a plea during a hearing on Tuesday with the legendary trainer saying the charge was "totally unnecessary and unfair".
