LEADING Victorian jockey Damien Oliver will face a Racing Victoria stewards panel on Tuesday after admitting he bet on a rival horse in a race at Moonee Valley in October, 2010.
Oliver rode second favourite Europa Point into sixth place, but told stewards on Monday that he bet $10,000 on the winner, Miss Octopussy.
He has also been charged with bringing a mobile phone into the jockey's room.
The 40-year-old faces the prospect of 12 months on the sidelines.
