Dettori adamant he'll be back

10:57 am on 7 December 2012

Frankie Dettori, one of racing's leading jockeys, is adamant he'll return to the top of the sport despite a six-month drugs ban.

The British based Italian rider is suspended until May after testing positive for a banned substance in France.

Despite the ban Dettori will be eligible to return in time to compete at the Epsom Derby and Royal Ascot meetings in June.

He will however miss the Dubai World Cup, the world's richest race.
