Fallon was barred from riding in the Derby by a legal dispute

Six-time champion jockey Kieren Fallon intends to return to action on Wednesday after missing the first day of Royal Ascot with a jarred neck.

Eddie Ahern piloted Veiled to Ascot Stakes victory for Nicky Henderson in Fallon's absence on Tuesday.

Fallon missed the first day of the meeting to undergo physiotherapy.

The 46-year-old is without a mount in the day's feature race, the Prince of Wales's Stakes, but has three other rides on Wednesday's Royal Ascot card.

Fallon was due to ride Fury in the Wednesday's opening Jersey Stakes, before trainer William Haggas withdrew the three-year-old.

Hiowever Fallon will partner third favourite Seta, for trainer Luca Cumani, in the following Windsor Forest Stakes.

The Irishman is also on leading contender Start Right, another Cumani runner, in the Royal Hunt Cup, and stablemate Dubai Queen in the concluding Sandringham Handicap Stakes.
