Dettori was suspended for nine meetings after he pleaded guilty to a careless riding charge

Globe trotting jockey Frankie Dettori has returned to scale with his head bowed after crossing the line for another second placing in the Melbourne Cup.

Dettori partnered the Lloyd and Nick Williams-owned, Joseph O’Brien-trained Master Of Reality who was beaten a head by Vow And And Declare in Tuesday’s race.

It was the third time in 17 Melbourne Cup appearances Dettori had been second across the line following Central Park in 1999 and Max Dynamite in 2015.

“I feel like crying,” Dettori said.

Things got worse for Dettori when a stewards’ protest was lodged on behalf of the connections of fourth placegetter, Il Paradisio ridden by Wayne Lordan, against Dettori resulting in Master Of Reality being relegated to fourth.

At a subsequent stewards inquiry, Dettori pleaded guilty to a careless riding charge, deemed in the low range, and suspended for nine meetings.

Dettori will begin the ban immediately and will have to delay the start of a four-week contract to ride in Japan.
