Mark Kavanagh and Danny O'Brien

Two Australian trainers found guilty of doping horses have had their bans overturned after evidence used to prosecute them was ruled inadmissible.

Melbourne Cup winner Mark Kavanagh and Danny O’Brien appealed after being banned by Racing Victoria for three and four years respectively last year over the use of cobalt chloride.

Four of O’Brien’s horses and one trained by Kavanagh failed urine tests.
