He's champion horse trainer with hundreds of wins under his belt, but just who is Darren Weir?

Nor will he fight against the charge issued against him for conduct prejudicial to the image, interests or welfare of racing.

The Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board is expected to hear the charges this week, possibly as early as Wednesday.

Racing Victoria stewards say they will seek a four-year disqualification.

Weir and McLean were asked to show cause why the stewards ought not to exercise their powers pursuant to Australian Rules of Racing pending the hearing and determination of charges issued against them by RV stewards on February 1.

Stier also explained how the stewards reached a proposed four-year disqualification for Weir under the charges relating to possession of "electronic apparatus capable of affecting the performance of a horse".

Subject to the condition stated above, McLean will be permitted to continue to nominate and accept horses for races and official trials.

Stewards opened the show cause hearing on Friday and withdrew all Weir's and McLean's horses from race meetings over the weekend. He will not be permitted to accept with any horses that he has nominated. Weir will not be able to accept with any of his nominated horses and any horse now nominated for a race, but not accepted, must be transferred to another trainer with the approval of the stewards if the owners still wish to compete in that race.

Until last week he had more than 600 horses on his books with many owners now transferring them to other trainers.

McLean is allowed to keep training in his own right, but is not permitted to train any horses that had been in Weir's stable up to January 30 this year.

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

He will, however, be allowed to nominate and accept horses for races and official trials.

They are seeking the term after Weir said he would not contest charges laid last week following a raid by stewards and Victoria Police's sports integrity unit on his stables at Ballarat and Warrnambool.

"He has advised the stewards that he will not contest those charges which have drawn considerable negative publicity to the sport", Racing Victoria's executive general manager of integrity Jamie Stier said after Monday's hearing.

The RAD Board hearing will kick off at 8.30am on Wednesday morning, with Weir indicating he will not fight charges relating to jiggers found in his stable or conduct prejudicial to the image of racing.
