Jockey Frankie Dettori has three booked rides as he returns to action at Lingfield on Wednesday.

The Italian has been sidelined since early October when he suffered a fractured ankle in a fall going down to the start before a race at Nottingham.

The three-times champion jockey, the retained rider for Sheikh Joaan Al Thani, will make his comeback on John Hills' Eco Warrior in the opening coral.co.uk Median Auction Maiden Stakes.

The four-year-old gelding, who is rated 57, has failed to hit the mark in four starts to date, most recently finishing 10th of 11 runners at Wolverhampton.

Dettori will also ride the Jeremy Noseda-trained Gone With The Wind in the 32Red.com Maiden Stakes over six furlongs on the Polytrack.

Owned by Paul and Susan Roy, the Dutch Art colt will be having just his second career start after finishing fifth at Kempton back in November.

Alexandra Dunn has also taken advantage of Dettori's services and he will ride Exemplary in the 32Red Conditions Stakes for the Somerset handler.

The seven-year-old will be reverting to the Flat for a fast-track qualifier for the all-weather finals day at Lingfield on Good Friday.
