Kieren Fallon was yesterday accused of "lying" after Top Cees finished fifth at Newmarket three years ago. Fallon, Lynda and Jack Ramsden are suing The Sporting Life for libel over an article in May 1995 which accused them of "cheating" their way to victory in the Chester Cup on Top Cees.

The newspaper's barrister accused Fallon of "deliberately lying" to the stewards' inquiry held after the Swaffham Handicap over the jockey's claim that he had never previously ridden the horse. The jockey vehemently denied the accusation. The hearing continues today.
