Dettori Expects Worldwide Ban

FRANKIE DETTORI on Wednesday appeared to concede that a worldwide ban from the sport is coming his way after he responded to France Galop’s announcement of an imminent disciplinary hearing into his failed drug test by saying he accepted “their conclusions without reservation”.

The sport’s most famous jockey had his worst fears confirmed when a medical commission passed the details of his positive test for a prohibited substance to stewards of French racing’s governing body, which will quickly convene a disciplinary hearing that is widely expected to result in a six-month ban for the jockey who is about to forfeit his status as Godolphin’s number-one rider.

The independent commission temporarily revoked Dettori’s licence on medical grounds, but of far graver concern to Britain’s three-time champion jockey was its decision that the severity of the evidence took the case outside the realms of the medical and into the disciplinary arena, in effect removing the 41-year-old’s last hope of avoiding sanction.
