Kieren Fallon returns to riding action at Doncaster today after a four-day suspension while his legal advisers consider whether to lodge an appeal against the jockey's latest brush with authority.

Fallon will start to recoup a portion of the pounds 1,500 he was fined for misleading the Jockey Club's Disciplinary Committee when he partners two mounts for his current employer, Lynda Ramsden, and one for Henry Cecil, whom he joins next season.

With just two more days of his 1996 campaign left - which has yielded a career-best tally of 135 winners - Fallon aims to end the season on a positive note. But a campaign that has also seen him serve 20 days suspension could be prolonged if he decides to challenge the Jockey Club's decision to find him guilty of providing deliberately misleading information at a previous disciplinary hearing.
