Three and easy for Fallon

Kieren Fallon teamed up with Luca Cumani to register a 254-1 treble at Folkestone.

Having had to wait 13 rides before registering a comeback victory at Wolverhampton, Fallon has now seamlessly settled back into the regime.

He started off by winning on Diam Queen (9-1) in the ladbrokescasino.com Median Auction Maiden Stakes.

Despite not being too hard on the filly, the jockey always looked likely to claim the spoils as they won by half a length.

Only 30 minutes later he was back in the winner’s enclosure, having made all of the running on Sham Sheer (15-2) in the Watch Live Sport At ladbrokes.com Handicap.

He was narrowly denied in the next when Magical Speedfit got beaten by a head, but Ordoney made it a three-timer when the 2-1 favourite beat Mick’s Dancer by half a length in the Best Odds Guaranteed At ladbrokes.com Handicap.

The six-times champion has been absent from British racecourses since July 2006 due to a combination of the Old Bailey trial into alleged race-fixing, which ended in the judge ruling there was no case to answer, and an 18-month drugs suspension imposed by French authorities.
