ALAN MUNRO announced yesterday that he is to part company with owner Fahd Salman, for whom he has ridden as retained jockey since 1991, at the end of the year.

'We have parted on the best of terms,' Munro said. 'I am very appreciative of the opportunities the Prince has given me and feel I have repaid him, having won 20 Group races. .'

Munro's finest moments for Salman came on Generous, the Derby, Irish Derby and King George VI & Queen Elizabeth Stakes winner in 1991. He will ride in Hong Kong this winter, before returning to pursue a career as a freelance in Britain.
