Racing: Fallon wanted for Change

Kieren Fallon, the champion jockey, could team up again with Major Change in the first running of the Teletext Winter Derby at Lingfield on 21 March.

Fallon was successful on the Gay Kelleway-trained horse when it won the City and Suburban Handicap at Epsom last year. "Kieren gets on well with the horse," the trainer said, "and the Winter Derby is the ideal race for Major Change. It's his trip and he'll like the surface."
