Fallon set to appeal ban

Kieren Fallon plans to appeal against the 10-day suspension that rules him out of the two-day Guineas meeting at Newmarket.

The six-times champion jockey, from Co Clare, was found guilty of not riding to the finish aboard Sukhothai in the Racing At Handicap at Kempton on Wednesday, eventually finishing third.

Fallon is set to be sidelined between April 27 and May 6 — the meeting is on April 30 and May 1 — and plans to appeal.

After guiding 2000 Guineas hope Native Khan to victory in the Craven Stakes at Newmarket yesterday, Fallon said: “I'm going to appeal but I won't hold my breath.

“The rules are the rules and I was doing my best.”
