LEGENDARY English jockey Lester Piggott returns to Hong Kong next month after being granted a one-month licence by the Jockey Club - and one of his first tasks will be to find a mount in the Derby.


Piggott's riding stint begins on February 12, 15 days before the Derby.


As expected, French rider Gerald Mosse was also granted a one-month licence. His stint starts Saturday.
