The particulars of the charge are summarised as follows:
1. On Friday, 3 February 2017, Mr Holland was engaged to ride Barge And Charge in Race 7, the Modscape Handicap over 3000m, at Moonee Valley.

2. Mr Holland has ridden Barge And Charge forward from the start from a three and four wide position until crossing to obtain a position outside the leader near the 2300m mark maintaining an extremely fast tempo.

3. Mr Holland has continued to ride forward from the 2300m mark and pressure Valediction for the lead between approximately the 2100m and 1900m point whilst maintaining an extremely fast tempo.

4. Near the 1900m mark Mr Holland did not steady his mount to afford Barge And Charge some respite due to the extremely fast tempo from the start, when it became apparent that Valediction, that was leading to its inside, wished to maintain the lead position.

5. Near the 1750m Mr Holland again challenged Valediction for the lead and continued to contest for the lead maintaining an extremely fast tempo until obtaining the lead near the 1200m mark.

6. Mr Holland’s actions between the 1750m and approximately the 1200m when continuing to challenge Valediction for the lead while maintaining an extremely fast tempo again resulted in him failing to afford Barge And Charge sufficient respite, when he should have steadied his mount.
