France Galop stewards will meet on 4 December to decide what action to take against Frankie Dettori following his positive test for a banned substance.

The medical commission of the ruling body of French racing last week imposed a temporary suspension on the Italian jockey on medical grounds, following his positive test at Longchamp on 16 September.

The commission forwarded its findings to the stewards for consideration and they will meet on Tuesday to discuss the case.

A France Galop tweet read: "The France Galop stewards to study Lanfranco Dettori's file on the 4th December."
