Frankie Dettori was yesterday banned for six days, from 21-26 September, for irresponsible riding at Goodwood on Leading Note. The Italian came over to the stands rails when the field for the mile and a half race swung into the straight, and took Pennys From Heaven, ridden by Chris Rutter, with him. It is the second time in a month that Dettori has been banned at Goodwood. He received a five-day ban there on 23 August.

Kieren Fallon now leads Dettori by five in the race for the jockeys' championship, for which the Tote's revised betting is Fallon 8-15 (from 4-6), and Dettori 11-8 (from 11-10).

n Lester Piggott will return to the saddle for a charity race at the Curragh a week today. The 11-time champion jockey, who retired last year, is one of several racing personalities who will take part in a race in aid of injured jockey Shane Broderick.
