KIEREN FALLON will be Sir Michael Stoute's stable jockey next year, the trainer confirmed yesterday. Fallon has ridden as a freelance since being sacked by Henry Cecil in July.

An informal arrangement has existed between Fallon and Stoute since and Fallon, who this year became only the third jockey in turf history - after Fred Archer and Sir Gordon Richards - to ride three consecutive double centuries, rides Stoute's Susu in the Breeders' Cup Mile tomororrow.

Stoute said: "We will sort something out for next year. He is in Hong Kong at the start of the year and is not going to ride for me on the all- weather, and he comes back mid-March. I wouldn't have asked him if I didn't want him."
