TOP English rider Kevin Darley is poised to sign for trainer Andy Leung as stable jockey next season. Leung's frustrating search may finally have ended - subject to licensing committee approval - as Darley, a winter visitor this season, said at Newmarket yesterday: 'I have been approached and been made an attractive offer. 'I have to make a final decision and it does not just involve me. 'I want to get this Guineas weekend out of the way and then I will sit down and have a long talk. 'I have a family to consider and that will weigh heavily on the final decision,' said Darley. Leung stable sources are convinced a deal will be done and Darley's name will go before the licensing committee for approval at their next meeting in mid-May. Darley, now riding as a freelance in England, made a good impression in his winter stay and had indicated interest in a Hong Kong return. Leung had earlier agreed terms with Ulster-born rider Ray Cochrane, but he was refused a licence, causing a mini-sensation in England where it had already been reported that he was coming to Hong Kong. Trainer Tony Cruz was fined a total of $130,000 when an inquiry into breaches of the Rules of Racing was concluded at Sha Tin before racing started yesterday. Cruz, who has had a memorable first season as a trainer, was charged with unauthorised use of a medication contrary to Rules 51 and 57. The inquiry, which had been adjourned from Happy Valley on Wednesday when evidence was taken from senior vet Keith Watkins and colleague Niall Collins, lasted 20 minutes. Under Hong Kong's ultra-strict rules, trainers are not allowed to administer medication to their horses. Any treatment or administration of any kind of medication is done by the veterinary department. Cruz said: 'I broke the rules as they are laid down. I was using an anti-bacterial medication which is the best in the world. I got it from America and I only hope that the Jockey Club will now bring it in and make it available. It was a mistake and I have paid for it.' Cruz had used the anti-bacterial medication on a number of horses and was fined accordingly. At Sha Tin, Allan was joined at the top of the trainers' table by arch-rival David Hayes who had a single winner as the champion drew a blank.
