South Australian Derby winner Zabeelionaire will be permitted to run in this afternoon's Melbourne Cup, but his trainer Leon Corstens has been fined A$500 for failing to notify stewards of administering a herbal hoof oil to the horse at  today.

The treatment had been recommended by the VRC veterinarian. Chief Steward Terry Bailey said: "We understand there was no reason for deceit here, but you should have made a request about using this [oil]. If the request was made, permission would have been denied."
