Dettori Hearing Set for December 4

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.
