Australian officials deny Golden Silca run in Cox Plate.

PLANS to run Golden Silca in the Cox Plate on October 26 have been knocked back by Australian authorities, who felt the mare did not have the form to warrant a place in the World Series contest

The Moonee Valley Racing Club committee held a meeting yesterday and

released a statement saying: "Golden

Silca does not currently satisfy the

conditions of the race in that the mare does not have Group 1 or Group 2 form at weight-for-age or at set weights.

"Had the matter of the horse's entry been delayed, Golden Silca's connections would have incurred expense and embarrassment, so the MVRC Committee has acted expeditiously."

The six-year-old's trainer Mick Channon was not too downbeat.

"Obviously they can only have so many running and that's their policy," he said. "I'm not going to make a fuss and there are plenty of other races she can go for instead."
