Fallon whips up a storm

T HE decision by an appeal court in London to banish Kieren Fallon from yesterday's Derby will send shockwaves through the world of racing.

Fallon is not the first jockey to say he will ride a horse only to then change his mind but he is certainly the first to have an injunction of this sort taken out against him by disgruntled owners. If this is to be the future, then it is only fair that jockeys who get ditched by owners can do likewise.
