Dettori jets in for a fancied Derby mount
Preview: Switzerland, Sunday 3.20pm BST
Frauenfeld: Davidoff 32nd Swiss Derby 1m4f, turf, 3yo
FRANKIE DETTORI may have missed out on a ride in the recent Epsom Derby, but on Sunday he takes the mount on fancied The Act (Miroslav Weiss) in the Swiss version which has 100,000 Swiss francs up for grabs.
The Act has won the last two of his three starts, most recently beating Sunday's rivals Cap Sizon (Philipp Schaerer/Vion Vincent) and Choix Celebre (Miroslav Weiss/Rab Havlin) in the Swiss 2,000 Guineas.
Havlin is bidding to add a second Derby victory of the year, having won the Italian version on Feuerblitz.
A trio of French-trained challengers might be better equipped in terms of stamina, with Saint-Cloud winner Raheb (Pascal Bary/FredericSpanu) arguably the pick of them.
