No broken bones for Dettori following Yarmouth spill

Frankie Dettori: stood down for the day at Yarmouth
1 of 1

Frankie Dettori appears to have avoided serious injury a week before Royal Ascot after being stood down for the day at Yarmouth on Tuesday following an incident in the parade ring before the opening race.

Dettori was getting the leg-up on the John Gosden-trained favourite Tivoli but the two-year-old filly appeared to be spooked and quickly dislodged the jockey, who fell to the floor.

While being attended to, Dettori looked to be holding his left shoulder before walking away unaided and subsequently leaving the course.

His agent Ray Cochrane said Dettori is likely to have to take it easy for a few days but, crucially, reported that no bones had been broken in the incident.

"He's okay but his arm is very sore, he took quite a nasty fall," said Cochrane. "He has seen the physio to give it a bit of manipulation and we've just got to see how it is in the morning.

"There are no breaks or anything like that but the physio expects him to be very sore in the morning, so we've just got to be careful, but otherwise he's in good form and he'll be okay."

As well as Royal Ascot next week, Dettori is due to ride Musidora Stakes winner Shutter Speed for Gosden in the Prix de Diane Longines at Chantilly on Sunday.
