Derby specialist Fallon refuses Native Khan ride

THREE-TIMES Investec Epsom Derby-winning jockey Kieren Fallon has opted not to ride Native Khan in Saturday’s big race.

Trainer Ed Dunlop said he was disappointed, with the six-time champion tipped to partner Recital for Aidan O’Brien’s Ballydoyle team.

“The enticement of the great Ballydoyle battleship steered him towards their horse,” said Dunlop.

Derby favourite Carlton House, owned by the Queen, is among 17 horses remaining in the field.
