Kieren Fallon hopes to be back in action tomorrow after giving up his rides for the second day running as he is still suffering from the effects of flu.
The illness has prevented the six-times champion jockey taking up an attractive book of rides at Salisbury today including 2008 Melbourne Cup runner-up Bauer.
He missed a double header on Wednesday at Lingfield and Kempton but is due to ride at those two tracks on Friday.
“He didn’t ride yesterday because of flu and he’s still not recovered to ride today. Hopefully he’ll be back tomorrow,” said his agent Gareth Owen.
