Kieran Fallon has been booked to ride the Sir Michael Stoute-trained Across The Stars in the Investec Derby on Saturday week.
Fallon spent five years as Stoute's stable jockey between 1999 and 2004 and during his time at the yard he guided Kris Kin and North Light to victory in the blue riband.
Across The Stars is owned by Saeed Suhail, who was also responsible for Kris Kin, and the former champion jockey will work the colt ahead of his run at Epsom on June 4.
"Kieren rode him this morning and I gather he will ride him again when Sir Michael works him tomorrow," Bruce Raymond, racing manager for Saeed Suhail, confirmed. "If he runs in the Derby, I'm sure Kieren Fallon will ride him.
"He won on Kris Kin for Saeed Suhail, so he was very keen to use him and he obviously has plenty of experience around Epsom.
"It's good to have him and to reunite the winning combination of the three of them."
