Australian trainer Darren Weir faces a ban of four years after deciding not to contest charges brought against him for the possession of equipment used to deliver electric shocks to horses.

Police seized four of the illegal Taser-type devices at the Melbourne Cup winner’s stables on 30 January.

Assistant trainer Jarrod McLean will contest some of the charges he faces.
