SPORTS BETTING: Fallon? It is all ugly rumours.

Byline: DEREK McGOVERN

IT CAN surely only have been his Derby-winning ride that this week saw Kieren Fallon shorten from 50-1 to 33-1 with Skybet to be voted best-looking jockey at Royal Ascot next week.

Fallon? Good-looking? He looks like a man whose hobby is stepping on rakes.

Maybe he's some sort of Fallon symbol to the ladies who will cast their votes at Ascot next Tuesday and Wednesday.

Favourite to be the Royal-meeting sex thimble is Italian Frankie Dettori, who is surely far more attractive than his odds of 2-5.

Best bet is 5-1 second-favourite Gary Stevens, who was recently voted one of America's 100 most beautiful people and is set to star in Hollywood movie Seabiscuit (he plays the biscuit).
