Fallon set for UK return on Friday

Kieren Fallon has been granted a riding licence by the British Horseracing Authority which will enable him to return to the saddle on Friday.

Fallon has been absent from British racecourses since July 2006 due to the Old Bailey trial into alleged race-fixing and an 18-month drugs suspension.

The 44-year-old is due to have his first rides in England for three years at Lingfield and Kempton.

Following the hearing, which lasted around 30 minutes, Fallon said: "It's all gone well. I'm delighted and just looking forward to Friday now."
