“Whether it will be a winner or not I don’t know, but we’ll be trying our best.

“He’s ridden a lot of winners for me since I started and we get on very well.

“The beauty about him is you can get a horse and he will tell you a lot about him for next time.

“I don’t know how long he’ll be staying across, but he will be riding a lot of ours when he gets back.”

Fallon, 50, took a break from riding in Britain in May after injuring his foot in the stalls and went over to compete in America when he recovered.
