Morrison: Dopers are out there.

Byline: DAVID YATES

HUGHIE MORRISON last night warned the dopers are still at large after being cleared of giving anabolic steroids to one of his horses.

The trainer's Our Little Sister tested positive for nandrolone after finishing last of eight in a race at Wolverhampton in January.

Morrison faced a maximum 10-year ban if found guilty, but a disciplinary panel of the British Horseracing Authority found the 57-year-old was not to blame.

"I cannot overstate the stress that has been caused by this longrunning case both for me, my wife, all my staff and connections, and the relief now felt having been rightly and so comprehensively exonerated."

Morrison, who was fined PS1,000, said: "The hell of the last 11 months can be forgotten, but the culprit who injected the filly is still out there so everyone needs to be on their guard."
