London - The former champion jockey is reported to be ready to flout an 'idiotic and highly illegal' Appeal Court injunction depriving him of his Derby ride today.
Fallon is said to be gobsmacked after the 'restraining' order was obtained 'by stealth' following an emergency late night sitting two by Appeal Court judges.
"The ban is unprecedented and probably illegal," sources close to the jockey's riding crop commented.
"Two old duffers in wigs probably thought they were dishing out some sort of sex scandal gagging order!
"WTF has this to do with racing?"
The judgment has effectively jocked Fallon off 4/1 2nd fav Recital following a series of spats with the connections of Native Khan.
Owner Ibrahim Araci obtained the emergency injunction after yesterday's High Court ruling that gave Fallon the green light for racing's top Classic contest.
He's said to be cheesed off after a verbal deal hiring Fallon to ride Native Khan in the Derby soured and the rider plumped for an Irish contender from the O'Brien stable.
Specialist racing QCs are now rubbing their hands with glee at the prospect of next week's multi-million pound counter suit.
"Just remember the Sir Alex Ferguson decision about Rock of Gibraltar," Dame Sylvia Swinley-Bottom told the Aintgottaprayer.con website.
"A gentlemen's agreement is just that - unenforceable in law without the weight of some bigwig judges in your back pocket!"
