Hunter & O'Neill Quizzed By Nikolic Stewards
Form analyst Mark Hunter & owner John O'Neill emerged from yesterday's "separate interviews" with Racing Victoria stewards "over the Nikolic affair with little to say" reported The Herald-Sun. However both men insisted "they were confident they had satisfied stewards' requirements when they answered a series of questions relating to bets & their relationships with Nikolic". Chief steward Terry Bailey said speaking to the pair was "part of the on-going inquiry". The newspaper noted O'Neill & Hunter "have provided stewards with detailed telephone & betting records from September 1 last year to January 31". The newspaper also reported stewards "are believed to have contacted another 18 people they consider of interest from a list of contacts in Nikolic's mobile phone".
