    First ride back after his ‘break’, King Kieran gets the jolly up in the first at Tipperary.<br>Know he’s not exactly the most popular jockey on this forum, but I for one am delighted to see him back riding.

    Wow! Impressive. On a 1/2 shot and did everything to botch it. Another of countless examples of Fallon getting in trouble during the race and having to "power" his way to a win. You want world class race riding, watch the ride given to 16/1 Bertoliver from stall one over five furlongs at Sandown Park. A jockey with a plan and a brain to implement that plan before the gates ever open. Trainers comments after the race "she’s never shown that much speed before". Jockey must be either prescient or maybe he knew based on riding him in his previous race what the possibilities are. In which case he probably knew more than the trainer.

    Jockeys like Kerrin McEvoy are ones we should be heaping all the attention on and not morally bankrupt individuals like Mr. Fallon who while banned from riding in Britain is found guilty of snorting the white dust and banned again. Not to mention all the other transgressions of the past. If he was a soccer player I could understand all the adulation. I dont think he is as good as some on here would profess so quite franky I fail  to see why I should get excited.

    Disclaimer: I had nary a cent on Bertoliver. Just appreciate watching greatness in any sporting endeavor.

    Criticise Fallon as a man by all means but as a jockey??

    You can’t be serious. The bloke is an outstanding jockey in the true sense of the word.

    Not sure Elvis could have done the weight, Mike

    The horse won the race. K Fellon was the rider.

    Semi-banned drug misuser facing corruption charges allowed to return to race-riding?

    Forgive me if my celebrations are somewhat low-key…

    If that man is King, I’m a Republican.

    Even measured purely as a jockey he’s well below average on any objective measure.
