FRANKIE DETTORI'S hearing in front of a disciplinary committee of the
French stewards has been scheduled for next Tuesday, December 4.
The three time champion jockey has been summoned to the hearing in
Paris after an independent medical commission last week found there was a
disciplinary case to answer, following Dettori's positive test for a
banned substance at Longchamp on September 16.
Dettori gave evidence to the medical commission by phone last
Tuesday, after which the three doctors suspended his license to ride in
France pending the session in front of the disciplinary panel.
The French authorities continue to maintain their silence on the
substance for which Dettori failed the test on Arc trials day but did
confirm last week that he was one of five jockeys to be randomly
selected at Longchamp.
