Champion trainer Darren Weir will not contest charges related to banned devices known as jiggers and can expect to be banned for at least four years.
The goal of a jigger is to shock a horse in training and then simulate the action on race day to make a horse think it is about to be shocked again.
Weir has decided not to contest charges relating to the possession of jiggers and on Tuesday there were reports he will cop a four-year ban.
"The only thing I put some thought into was the fairness of the stewards' decision", McCauley said.
They were also charged with failing to answer questions at the opening of a Racing Victoria stewards inquiry on Thursday.
At a hearing with Racing Victoria on Monday afternoon, Weir confirmed he would not be contesting the charges against him when he faces the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board. McLean will not be able to receive any horses to train that were in the care of Weir as of January 30, 2019, but subject to the condition stated above, McLean will be permitted to continue nominating and accepting horses for races and official trials.
If he sits out four years, Weir will be aged 52 by the time he's allowed to return.
Weir is Australia's leading trainer and one of the biggest names in racing after shattering all records in recent years.
