A verdict on any suspension for Frankie Dettori after the jockey tested positive for a banned substance in France had not been disclosed by Tuesday afternoon.

The 41-year-old did not appear personally before the Medical Committee of the French racing authority, France Galop, in Paris, but did make his own representation via conference call.

The committee will make their findings known to France Galop and it is understood the stewards will meet in two weeks’ time to discuss it.

Dettori’s legal representative Christopher Stewart-Moore was at the hearing and he confirmed that no decision has been announced yet: “The Medical Committee will announce their decision shortly, and we will then comment further on Frankie Dettori’s behalf.”
