Damien Oliver Responds To Betting Allegations
After initially responding to the allegations of betting on Miss Octopussy via a third party with a firm "No comment", jockey Damien Oliver has since issued a prepared statement, saying: ''With regards to the allegations made in the Fairfax Media this morning, I cannot and will not be making any comment, other than to say allegations such as these are damaging and hurtful… and that everyone, myself included, should have the right to a due process being followed here. With that in mind, I'd request that my rights in this area be respected. That is all I have to say at this time.''
