Balding set to lose out over positive test.

IAN BALDING is set to lose a winner after Hoh Discovery, successful under Kieren Fallon in the Willoughby Median Auction Maiden Stakes at Leicester on April 24, was found to have tested positive for the prohibited substance tetramisole.

The finding, confirmed by counter-analysis at the racing laboratory in Hong Kong, will be the subject of a Jockey Club Disciplinary Committee inquiry, but there is not thought to be anything ominous surrounding the test result.

The committee also has to set hearing dates for two cases of a similar nature.

The hunter-chaser All Weather, owned by Martin Wilesmith, provided evidence of guaifenesin, a muscle relaxant and cough mixture ingredient, when tested at Newbury on March 5, and the John Gosden-trained Aldburgh tested positive for the painkiller ibuprofen at Windsor on April 19.
