The Independent Online
Frankie Dettori has been stood down for two days with mild concussion after taking a bang on the head in a fall at Epsom yesterday when unseated from Move With Edes before the Warren Stakes. He will have to pass a medical examination before racing at Sandown on Saturday if he is to take the ride on Benny The Dip in the Classic Trial.

Dettori had been taken behind the stalls on the Bill Turner-trained five- year-old when the gelding bolted and unshipped him after travelling for a furlong. He walked to an ambulance and returned to the weighing room with a cut on his forehead.

Kieren Fallon has chosen to ride the Fred Darling Stakes failure Sleepytime for Henry Cecil in the 1,000 Guineas on Sunday week instead of stablemates Yashmak or Reams Of Verse who will work together at Newbury this weekend.
