Queensland trainer Ben Currie has been committed to stand trial on fraud charges.

Disqualified trainer Ben Currie is set to face a trial on fraud charges later this year.

Currie, 28, was in the Toowoomba Magistrates Court for a hand-up committal hearing on Monday.

He is facing charges of fraud dating from November 2016 to March last year alleging he used an unregulated horse supplement designed to enhance race performance.

No date was set for a trial in the Toowoomba District Court but it is likely to be later this year.

Currie, who is now living on the Gold Coast, was granted bail and did not enter a plea.

He is currently banned from training and faces further racing charges at the end of his criminal trial.
