Dettori plans to return on Saturday after Yarmouth incident

Frankie Dettori: hopes to be back next week
1 of 1

Frankie Dettori, who was left nursing his shoulder after an incident in the Yarmouth parade ring on Tuesday, will not ride at Kempton on Wednesday night but plans to be back in action on Saturday.

Dettori was due to ride the John Gosden-trained Tivoli in a maiden at Yarmouth, but she spooked prior to the race, leaving the jockey nursing his shoulder. She was withdrawn and Dettori was stood down for the rest of the day.

Dettori had been booked for two rides at Kempton, but will not take them and instead plans to have physio as he gears up for a Saturday return before partnering the classy Shutter Speed in the Group 1 Prix de Diane at Chantilly on Sunday.

The 46-year-old, by far racing's most recognisable face and one of its most successful riders, will have a select book of rides at Royal Ascot next week when he will be keen to add to his 56 winners at the meeting.
